Pattern Tools

TurboCAD Platinum offers a pattern tools collection, six tools that allow you to design models of incredible complexity with ease.
Pattern Tool Screen 1
Patterns are arrays of objects copied in specific arrangements and which are controlled parametrically.

New TurboCAD Platinum can rapidly create parametric 3D patterns from a wide variety of entities including:

  • ACIS Objects (previously available)
  • Surface Objects
  • 2D Objects
  • 3D Objects
  • Blocks

Pattern Tool Screen 2
Six types of patterns are available including:

  • On Polyline
  • Array
  • On Curve
  • Radial
  • Spherical
  • Cylindrical

When an Array Pattern is created, for example, the number of rows, columns, levels, and the distance between items in the array's x, y, or z axis can be modified at any later time.
