TurboCAD Windows

TurboCAD Windows includes TurboCAD Platinum, TurboCAD Professional, TurboCAD Deluxe, and TurboCAD Designer.  We offer free assistance troubleshooting unexpected software errors or behavior to owners of versions 2022, 2021 and 2019.  

Why aren’t older versions supported?  The system requirements for older software are out of date, so the working environment cannot be duplicated by our technical support team. In most cases, issues are resolved by upgrading, and you are strongly encouraged to do so. To request an upgrade quote, send an email to sales@imsidesign.com or visit our online Upgrade Center
