TurboCAD Mac 2D offers a large selection of tools, so that no matter the situation, you’ve got access to the right tool for the job. Each drawing tool has multiple options for creating objects in your designs. Powerful tools such as rectangular and polar (circular) arrays help you create more precise and complicated patterns. A complete toolkit of trimming options is available to help you make modifications. The included ‘Region Trim' will do in one click, what most programs take dozens of steps to achieve.
Drawing precisely is easy with TurboCAD Mac Designer 2D! 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 Designer 2D is a robust design documentation tool with over 20 customizable dimension styles, including industry dimension formats.
Want to import a 3D model you created in other software, so you can document it in TurboCAD Mac Designer 2D? You can do that with our Auto 3D to 2D feature that will create multiple 2D views.
Other great features to help you document and annotate your projects include:
You can create scaled building drawings and room layouts with TurboCAD Mac Designer 2D.
For example, custom walls are drawn using thickness for different components, allowing you to present the real-world wall sizes and dimensions of the materials that make up the walls.
Other great architectural design features include:
Instant architectural detailing with automatic dimensioning or customize your own labels for doors and windows with callouts
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.
Save Layer 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.
