High Resolution Printing for Objects with Textures.

High Resolution Printing for Objects with Textures 

Prints involving objects with textures now internally use Lightworks to generate the image for the printer, providing a high-resolution output.

Skinning with Center Line Path.

Skinning is the process of constructing a NURB surface between sections. Skins in TurboCAD can be open resulting in a NURB Surface or closed creating a Solid. V11 introduces the ability to specify a path. The path defines the flow of the surface between the sections. Specifying a path means you may be able to define less sections which may produce a more overall smooth surface. Restrictions - Path must be one G2 smooth curve - Path must be perpendicular at a section intersection

 

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

 

Edge Features.

Edge features introduced in V11 provide a means to rapidly define parametric edges used in wood, marble, or granite designs.

Some predefined edge treatments include:

• Cove

• Rounds

• Rounds with Beaded Offset

• Full, Half, and Beaded Ogee

• Waves

• Bullnose, Half Bullnose

• Custom Edge .

 

Stopped Chamfer.

 

Stopped Chamfers are a new solid modelling feature in V11. A Stopped Chamfer replaces an edge with a bevel, typically for decorative purpose. The bevel starts and ends by a user specified value. Parameters used to define a Stopped Chamfer are:

• Chamfer Length

• Distance from Start

• Distances from End The transition rolls off using a smooth arc simulating the path of a router bit. As with other features, the user can modify any of these parameters during the design process to explore alternative shapes quickly.

Surface from Laws.

 

V11 introduces the ability to use parametric formulas to design NURB shapes. Formulas are defined by users specifying how x, y, and z relate to a parameterized equation (UV). For example, a simple Paraboloid NURB surface is defined by U and V through the three parametric formulas: f(x) = U*cos(V) f(y) = U*sin(V) f(z) = 0.2*U^2 Some predefined formulas available from a drop down for the designer include:

• Sine Wave

• Paraboloids

• Moebius strip

• Kline Bottle

• Double Spring

• Barrel Spring

• Hour Glass Spring

• Sine or Twisted Tubes

SPUR Gear Creation.

This feature is available in Optional Powerpack Module. The spur gear teeth in TurboCAD use an involute curve. The involute curve is the curve traced by a point on a straight line with rolls without slipping. Spur Gears in TurboCAD are defined with the following parameters.

• Number of Teeth

• Module

• Pressure Angle

• Cone Angle

• Clearance

• Involute Samples

• Inner Hole Diameter

• Thickness

 

3MF Import & Export.
