TurboCAD Pro 20
TurboCAD Pro delivers affordable, professional CAD software for design, drafting, and detailing. Parametric constraints, 3D surface and ACIS® solid modeling, LightWorks™ photorealistic rendering, architectural and mechanical tools, and extensive file support appeal to professionals across disciplines. Plus, both 32-bit and 64-bit versions delivered to take full advantage of your hardware’s available computer memory.
Time to Produce and Ease of Use
TurboCAD Pro delivers an incredible collection of time saving features that are easy to use. Choose the option to install the 64-bit version to load, process, and render CAD files of nearly any size. Multi-threading, a GPU-accelerated drawing engine, and hundreds of time-saving tools are just some of the ways TurboCAD speeds design, without sacrificing ease of use. Plus a new AutoCAD 2D workalike mode give you the flexibility to work in an environment similar to AutoCAD LT with dynamic input and command line.

Architectural Drafting and Design
TurboCAD Pro includes a robust collection of architectural drafting and design tools. An extensive collection of ADA compatible architectural objects are supported by dynamic dimensions, terrain tools, and automated tools for laying out your building and creating schedules. Whether you’re an architect, builder, civil engineer, or novice home designer, TurboCAD has practical tools for all your architectural design needs.
- House Wizard
- 2D/3D Parametric Objects
- Self-Aligning Blocks
- Terrain Modeling
- Styles & Style Manager

TurboCAD Pro gives engineers the power to set up 2D parametric constraints for greater control and productivity as you evaluate designer alternatives. 3D surface modeling and ACIS® solid modeling tools makes the creation of realistic, complex 3D objects simple. And a parametric parts manager lets you create and consume parts that remain parametrically controlled even after insertion into your drawing. These and many more tools and technologies make TurboCAD ideal for both single part and assembly mechanical designs.

Presentation - The Key to Selling Your Concepts
TurboCAD Pro provides more ways to present your designs in a professional manor. Several render modes are provided including wireframe, hidden line, high quality photorealistic rendering, and an advanced mode that allows for artistic render styles. Users can define physically accurate materials, including reflective surfaces with ray tracing and radiosity, and apply lighting and luminance to create stunning photorealistic images that showcase your work. Output to PDF or a number of image formats, or add the AnimationLab plug-in to animate your design. And TurboCAD Pro now outputs directly 3D System’s BFB 3D printer
software for printing prototypes and more!
TurboCAD Pro includes tools necessary to rapidly document and annotate your designs. The Drafting Palette accelerates creating Views, Sections, Elevations, Floorplans, and Detail Views in numerous display styles. A full range of Dimension types that are style driven are available as well as Tables, Text, and Multi-Text tools as expected. You can quickly create 2D planar drawing sets of 3D designs, and explode viewports for greater clarity. Plus, dimension scaling in Viewports within a paper space is automatic.
Workflow in the Real World
Because we know that most people use a number of tools or collaborate with others frequently, TurboCAD Pro is designed to provide excellent workflow to and from other applications. New TurboCAD Pro 20 supports export of 3D models to 3D .PDF which can be viewed interactively with Acrobat Reader. Open, import, or embed up to 35 file formats and export up to 28, including newly updated .DWG/.DXF (AutoCAD®) and .DGN (MicroStation) formats, plus .SKP (Google SketchUp™) and many others. Except for bitmaps, all support formats can be used as external references (xrefs) and many also work with TurboCAD’s Drafting Palette. This combination means that the model may be designed in one application, and the views, sections, elevations, and floorplans will be updated when the original model is changed.
