This multimedia Training program aims to provide the TurboCAD Mac user with a comprehensive learning tool which spans 2D drawing and 3D design.
This Guide is presented in a Tutorial format, allowing the user to follow the step-by-step instructions from concept to completion. All the Tutorial content in this Guide contains designs which instruct how to create 2D geometry in order to produce 3D solid models in fluid start-to finish tutorials.
Each Session contains an Introduction Sheet which illustrates in detail the sketch or model which will be produced during the Session, complete with important information, estimated session duration and a fully completed drawing sample of the session. The drawing sample can be viewed or printed as a pdf or opened using your TurboCAD Mac software.

Drawing precisely is easy with TurboCAD Mac! We have designed it to be user friendly and intuitive to work with.
The LogiCursor™ anticipates your next action and guides your cursor to potential point selections in the drawing.
The Gripper adds drag and drop capabilities to make editing designs easy breezy.
Customizable Grids add another level of ease by providing precision drag and drop in rectangular, polar (circular), and isometric layouts.
TurboCAD Mac Deluxe 2D/3D includes 3D printing tools to prepare and validate your designs to make them 3D printer ready.
3D Print Check
Checks for print viability, displaying warnings or errors to the user.
Surface Normals Check
Facet normals define the inside and outside areas of a part. If facet normals are pointing the wrong way, the 3D printer may have problems creating the part. This will check for problems and we have several commands that can help you fix it.
This will help you visually inspect modeling areas that may require structural support for 3D printing. Meshes, surfaces, and solids facets normals are compared to the work plane direction. Angles that are less or equal to 45 degrees are highlighted as red.
Wall Thickness Analysis
This tool provides a means to visually inspect modeling areas that may be too thin for 3D printing. Meshes, surfaces, and solids facets are examined using ray intersections.
This interface will help you to slice models given a direction and thickness. The dialog box allows for animation through the slices and single-stepping. Use to verify that a part has closed, non-overlapping sections, a requirement for 3D printing.
The Auto Position tool translates the model to the positive x, y coordinate system at z=0.
Manually adds geometry to support material as it is created by the 3D printer. Support structures controls, include Attach Radius, Midpoint Radius, Base Radius, Base Thickness, and Drag base and midpoints to modify structure location.
Show Printer Volume
Toggles the boundary of the default 3D Printer. The volume is defined within the Printer Definitions dialog box.
Sets key parameters of the 3D printer, including length, width, and height of the volume accessible by the printer. The parameters in the Printer Definitions dialog box are used for commands such as 3D Print Check and Auto Position.
Split Mesh:This tool allows you to divide a mesh into two portions based on a cutting plane. Split Mesh is an ideal tool for those working with faceted data along with 3D printing manufacturing processes.
Mesh Booleans:This advancement provides a means to add or remove material from a mesh body. Previous versions only allowed Boolean operations on ACIS®- based solids. Now with the introduction of mesh Booleans, you can add/remove material imported from STL, OBJ, 3DS, and SketchUp.
Weight and Volume Tables:Whether you’re designing an aircraft, automobile, or picnic table, weight is key control parameter in a design. Tracking the weight of materials is a key control parameter in design. V12 introduces a new Bill of Material (BOM) attribute specific for creating a summed weight table.
Best Fit Line and Best Fit Circle:Great for tracing precise curves over rough sketches. This tool will “best fit” a line or circle from a sample collection of points.
Angular Tolerance Updates:The Angular Tolerance interface has been updated to dynamically provide input from the Inspector dialog box.
Show/Hide Face:The Show/Hide Face tool will hide faces within a part enabling access and visibility into the internal representations of complex models.
Save Layers with view:Now you have the ability to save layers associated with view orientations.
Repeat Previous Command:This “right click” feature will save you lots of time by maintaining a list of last-used drawing commands. Select an item in the list to quickly change the current tool.
Now you can work with file types from these other programs:• DWG/DXF 2020 Import/Export
• PDF Import
• Adobe Illustrator Import
• SketchUp 2020 Import/Export
• Collada (DAE) Import/Export
Key Training Features
10 fully detailed sections on all the tools most frequently used in any 2D or 3D Design. Some of these include :
2D & 3D Self-Paced Tutorials
Also includes 16 self-paced Work sessions containing the 2D Sketch and 3D Model of the same design. Each Worksheet contains detailed, colorful instructions on how to complete each task, including full animations per task. Each task contains full instructions in an animated, video format. Pause, rewind or fast-forward your videos while you draw. Drag the movie to another screen and use the instructions on your laptop to produce the designs and the movie on the second screen to check your progress.
Progress through each session at your own pace, repeating any task as many times as necessary until you are ready to move to the next design. Tutorials 4 to 8 contain a full 5-part component to assembly design, progressively building the design with each tutorial.
