External References or ‘Xrefs’ as they are more commonly known by, are great to associate other drawings, CAD and otherwise, with your TurboCAD drawing. When you use an Xref the external drawing is not actually inserted into your current TurboCAD drawing; rather it is linked to your drawing
What this means is that if there are any changes made to the referenced drawing are displayed when the current drawing is opened or reloaded. In addition, the Xref allows you to build your drawing without significantly adding to TurboCAD’s size.
What makes TurboCAD’s Xref support so good?
Unlike other CAD applications, which typically support only a couple of file formats for externally referencing, TurboCAD is able to externally reference any of the CAD and graphic file formats it supports – over 2 dozen!
What are the benefits to using Xrefs?
Note: Like a block reference, an xref appears in the current drawing as a single object. However, you cannot explode an xref without binding it first
