LTE File Compatibility

Excellent CAD File Workflow

Need to share CAD files with others? Open and save .DWG, .DXF, and .DWF formats from AutoCAD R14 to 2013, plus over 30 more industry standard file formats.


Open and Save As .DWG (AutoCAD® Release 14 to 2013)

Save ACA/ADT-compatible objects and parameters for intelligent use in AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT. TurboCAD LTE’s .DWG files with ACA/ADT compatible objects can be brought into AutoCAD products and retain their self-healing properties. For example, bring a TurboCAD LTE .DWG file with walls and blocks into AutoCAD LT and walls continue to self-heal within AutoCAD LT as those blocks are moved. TurboCAD LTE is a great way to head-start your project.


Open .SKP (Trimble® SketchUp™)

Enjoy superior workflow with Trimble SketchUp, including SketchUp Make and SketchUp Pro, .SKP files. TurboCAD LTE imports all visible geometry, layers, and components. It also converts all components to TurboCAD LTE blocks to optimize drawing performance. You can even create a paperspace from each SketchUp scene, thereby saving time by automatically creating viewports with the correct layer visibility and 2D or perspective view properties. These paperspace views are also immediately ready for dimensioning and annotation. Develop construction documents quickly from SketchUp 6, 7 and 8 models.


3D .PDF and Universal 3D (U3D) Filters

As a mainstay of 2D drafting and detailing, TurboCAD LTE Pro allows you to import 3D elements for final dimensioning, layout, and presentation. Now users can export your annotated materials to Standard PDF, U3D, and 3D PDF to be interactively visualized by Acrobat Reader (since version 7). You can also use TurboCAD LTE Pro as a tool to convert your 3D models directly into 3D PDF or U3D.


Support for Many More CAD & Graphic File Formats

TurboCAD LTE Pro supports over 30 of the latest industry CAD and graphic file formats. In addition to .DWG and .SKP, you can open and Edit .DXF and .DWF files. The DGN file filter opens and saves DGN files through v8 for working with MicroStation. Open and/or Save As .IGES, .3DM (Rhino®), .3DS (3ds Max®), .STL, .SAT, .STEP, .OBJ, and work with the newly improved .DAE (Collada) filter, so mechanical drawings can be brought in for advanced detailing projects or translations from almost any MCAD application. This means that beyond AutoCAD & SketchUp, TurboCAD LTE Pro is an excellent companion to SolidWorks, SolidEdge, Pro/E, and other CAD programs.


File Conversion Tool for Batch File Conversion

With the Batch File Converter utility you may select files of one type and convert them to any of the file formats supported for saving. This includes converting a dozen .DWG files to .png, or converting .2CD to .DXF 2013 format files – all in one step.


Improved DWG/DXF Read/Write Filters

Files filters have been updated to support import and export of the latest AutoCAD file formats. TurboCAD now uses the latest Teigha engine for the conversion of .dwg and .dxf files to/from different versions. Dynamic blocks are imported as simple blocks.


New SketchUp SKP 2015 Support

Import/export of new SketchUp 2015 files, as well earlier versions.
