Key Features

Complete Set of 2D Drafting Tools

TurboCAD Mac offers a large selection of 2D tools, so that no matter the situation you’ve got access to the right tool for the job. Included you’ll find line, arc and curve tools. Plus access circle, ellipse, polygon, and spline tools, including the freehand spline and fair spline tools that offer greater control. You will also find power text and dimensioning tools, fillet and chamfer tools, as well as 2D modifier and transformation tools.

Drafting Assistant & Snaps

The Drafting Assistant thinks like a drafter. It automatically knows where construction lines are typically wanted and displays them temporarily when necessary. Combine with snaps to quickly locate x, y coordinates, tangents and perpendiculars, and you’ll be able to quickly layout floorplans, diagrams and more.

500 Floor Plans

Start from scratch or choose from any one of these pre-designed floor plans you can customize to make each one your own.

Over 7,000 2D symbols and parts

Choose from thousands of parts and symbols to effortlessly add to your design including electrical, mechanical, bathroom, kitchen, construction, LAN, CMOS, doors, windows, counters, fasteners, HVAC and more. Use the symbols browser to quickly locate just what you need, enhanced with symbol filenames.

Advanced Editing

Select an object and easily change the geometry in the Edit Objects window. All values appear as whole numbers or decimals and can be entered in any units desired.

Layers and Layer Sets

Use layers to organize your design and create layer sets, making it easy to visually turn on and off appropriate visual aspects of a model for easier editing. The number of layer sets is virtually unlimited, layers can be assigned to as many sets as necessary, and sets can be recursively nested.

Block Manager

Create, edit and manage Blocks in the Block Manager. A block preview window is included.

Architectural Design Tools

Smart walls - TurboCAD Mac’s self-healing walls automatically join, intersect, and update to speed design. Walls can be set to auto trim wall vertices and intersections, and allow for assignment of a hatch pattern and color.

Parametric Doors & Windows – Choose from 3 door styles (Single, Single Standard, or Double) and 3 window styles (Overlapping Sill, Standard Sill and Tight Sill) to drag-and-drop into a wall, and TurboCAD Mac will automatically create an opening in the wall. Users can offset the door or window a prescribed distance from the end of the wall for precise placement, and now control the swing direction of the doors.

Complete File Compatible & Conversion Options

Easily import your graphic designs files into TurboCAD and turn them into precision CAD drawings with dimensions. Just as easily, you can export technical drawings from TurboCAD into desktop publishing formats, perfect for use in brochures and all other marketing materials.

Import or export from these popular formats: AutoCAD® DWG/DXF, JPEG, Adobe® EPS (export only), Adobe® Illustrator, BMP, PICT, Spline (import only), TEXT.

You can also use TurboCAD’s powerful batch conversion tool to convert single images or groups of images to other file formats.

Printing & PDF

Use Model to Sheet to create page layouts to view and print your design with up to 4 different angles on a single page. Additionally, TurboCAD Mac offer control over text size, dimension text size, and more. Users can also save designs as single or multi-page PDFs in standard or custom sizes for sending via email. You can even print large, data intensive files with poster size clarity.

Updated BOM Dialog

Creating a Bill of Material (BOM) now has options for specifying the following table settings:

  • Font Type
  • Font Size
  • Number of Decimals

New Customizable Context Menu                                                                                                            Customizable Context Menu

The Context Menu displayed on right clicking in the empty drawing area displays a variety of useful commands. Now with TurboCAD Mac v10, you can add your favorite commands to this menu.

New Copy Keep Original Layer Option                                                                                                     Copy Keep Original Layer

A new Copy Keep Original Layer option will preserve the original layer with the copied object for the transform tools of Translate, Rotate, Scale, and Mirror. The default behavior assigns the current work layer.

New Draw View Type for Easy Scaled Prints                                                                                          Draw View Type for Easy Scaled Prints

Draw Views are now only dependent on the viewing area and layers. This is a change from previous versions where populating a New Draw View was accomplished by cutting and pasting objects. Additionally, new tools are introduced to dynamically pan and zoom the viewing area within a Draw View.

New Selection Tools

New Lasso Select tool option, allow for more efficient workflow and management of your CAD drawings.

Improved Gripper Tool

The Gripper Tool now offers an auto sizing update

Updated Interoperability Components (IGES, STEP,SAT)

Precision data translators were developed by the world’s foremost expert in Interoperability—Dassault Systems (creators of CATIA & SolidWorks). 3D Interop integrates advanced features such as Geometry Repair, Topology Repair, and Tolerance Resolution.

New Features

2D Geometric and Dimensional Constraints:

2D Dimension and Constraints 

Dimension and constraint tools are now available to manage the geometric relationships between 2D shapes.

Feature Highlights:

• Thirteen Geometric Constraints

• Dimension Constraints

• Variable and Equations

Tool Icon Sizing.

2D Dimension and Constraints 

You can now modify a tool palette to use larger or smaller icons. Right click on the tool bar header to display a popup menu for “Change Icon Size”. This menu now provides options for 64,32,24 and 16-pixel sized icons. The default icon size is 32x32.

Layer Duplicate.

A new command to duplicate a layer and all the objects in that layer is now available through Concept Explorer. To access this command, place your cursor over the layer you want to duplicate, right click and select the Duplicate command. If you Duplicate a sub layer, the new duplicated layer is promoted to a first level layer.

 Layer Duplicate

SVG Import and Export.

Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) is an XML-based vector image format for two-dimensional graphics with support for interactivity and animation. V11 now supports importing and exporting to this new format.

The new SVG Import/Export provides an alternative to using the Adobe Illustrator format for sharing vector based (scalable) graphics.

Note: For importing SVG files from Adobe Illustrator use a unit setting of mm (or inch) and a DPI setting of 72 to get the correct scale.

SVG Import and Export SVG Import and Export

Simplify curves.

Some design tasks prefer higher order curves such as arcs, circles, and/or ellipses over lines. For example, sharing data with a plasma or water jet cutting CNC system or extruding a profile into a solid and later adding edge treatments. V11 introduces the Simplify Curve tool to assist in this task. Covert Lines or Polylines into:

• Arcs

• Circles

• Ellipses

• Splines


DXF/DWG 2018 Import/Export.

This optional add-on extends in TurboCAD. Autodesk (TM) has updated the DXF/DWG format with the release of AutoCAD 2018. V11 has been updated to support the new format. Note: AutoCAD 2019 uses the same format as AutoCAD 2018.
