The LogiCursor™ thinks like a drafter. It automatically knows where construction lines are typically wanted and displays them temporarily as you draw. Combined with snaps to quickly locate tangent and perpendicular points or align to x, y, z axis edges, faces or workplanes, making TurboCAD Mac ideal for modeling in 3D or quickly laying floorplans, diagrams and more.
500 Floor Plans
Start from scratch or choose from any one of these pre-designed floor plans you can customize to make each one your own.
Over 26,000 2D symbols and parts
Choose from thousands of parts and symbols to effortlessly add to your design for AEC, Mechanical, Electrical, and Process Plant and Piping.
Select an object and easily change the geometry in the Edit Objects window. All values appear as whole numbers or decimals and can be entered in any units desired.
Layers and Layer Sets
Use layers to organize your design and create layer sets, making it easy to visually turn on and off appropriate visual aspects of a model for easier editing. The number of layer sets is virtually unlimited, layers can be assigned to as many sets as necessary, and sets can be recursively nested.
Create, edit and manage Blocks in the Block Manager. A block preview window is included.
Architectural Design Tools
Smart walls - TurboCAD Mac’s self-healing walls automatically join, intersect, and update to speed design. Walls can be set to auto trim wall vertices and intersections, and allow for assignment of a hatch pattern and color.
Parametric Doors & Windows
– Choose from 3 door styles (Single, Single Standard, or Double) and 3 window styles (Overlapping Sill, Standard Sill and Tight Sill) to drag-and-drop into a wall, and TurboCAD Mac will automatically create an opening in the wall. Users can offset the door or window a prescribed distance from the end of the wall for precise placement, and now control the swing direction of the doors.
Complete File Compatible & Conversion Options
Easily import your graphic designs files into TurboCAD and turn them into precision CAD drawings with dimensions. Just as easily, you can export technical drawings from TurboCAD into desktop publishing formats, perfect for use in brochures and all other marketing materials.
Import or export from these popular formats: AutoCAD® 2013 DWG/DXF, JPEG, Adobe® EPS (export only), Adobe® Illustrator, BMP, PICT, Spline (import only), TEXT, and Claris CAD (import only)

TurboCAD Mac Pro offers a variety of ways to share your work. The new Print by Layer Tool is extremely useful when you have multiple sets of data within one file that needs printing. For less complex jobs, a new Print Window option allows users to simply drag the mouse over the area of your design you wish to print. Use page layouts to publish your design from up to 4 different view angles on a single page, controlling text size and more. Save designs as single or multi-page PDFs for sending via email, or export to one of the many desktop publishing formats for placement in brochures and more.
