New Lightworks® 8.3 Photorealistic Rendering Engine
TurboCAD Deluxe includes powerful, easy-to-use rendering and visualization technology by LightWorks. It allows users to define physically accurate materials such as glass, mirrors, and polished or reflective surfaces with ray tracing, so anyone can create stunning photorealistic designs. Updated Lightworks engine provides progressive, ray-traced rendering which improves workflow by generating fast estimates of the image and an early preview of light settings. This engine also supports multi-threading, taking advantage of multi core processors so the turn around time for calculations is much faster. Anti-aliasing for geometry and materials is also improved.
Choose from or create your own realistic material patterns, transparency, reflectance, and texture types and settings as well as multiple wrapping options to make designs look like they will in real life.
Realistic Lighting Effects
Multiple light types and settings cast hard and soft shadows and reflect accurately off reflective surfaces with ray tracing allowing you to create photorealistic designs. Fog and scattering mediums are also supported.
Organize, access, and explore design alternatives easily in the Design Director Palette. Create layer templates, light templates, camera templates and powerful layers for use on different designs. Layer filters, that are .dwg compatible, help you manage large, complex drawings with ease. TurboCAD Deluxe layers are AutoCAD compatible, including a layers dialog based upon ‘Design Center’.
Floating and Shaped Viewports
Create viewports of Model space in multiple Paper spaces. Edit your viewports by changing their shape or the layers that they display, with the ability to turn on/off layers per viewport. You can even render within a viewport.
Multiple Drawings/Multiple Paper Space
Build multiple drawings, each with multiple paper spaces, with independent settings (grid units, etc.); then use tabs to quickly switch between paper spaces.
Colors, Brushes, Bitmap and Gradient Fills, and Transparency>
TurboCAD allows for hatch patterns and gradients to be layered with transparency. Custom bitmaps, such as your company logo, may be used as well. This empowers you to much more clearly and precisely communicate construction or assembly details.
