TurboCAD Mac 2D/3D Training Guides

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.

3D Printing Tools

TurboCAD Mac Pro 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.

Overhang Analysis

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.

Preview Slices

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.

Auto Position

The Auto Position tool translates the model to the positive x, y coordinate system at z=0.

Support Structure

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.

Printer Definitions

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.

Record, Publish, & PDF

Record your screen with QuickTime Recording including audio capture for creating videos and tutorials. Save designs as single or multi-page PDFs for sending via email, or export to one of the many desktop publishing formats for placement in brochures and more.

New Features

3D Design:

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.
 

Split Mesh New Feature Video

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.
 

Wrap:

The Wrap tool will help you place text, company logos, or complex 2D patterns onto 3D surfaces. The results are perfect for imprinting, embossing, or engraving.
 

Wrap New Feature Video

PhotoRender SpotLight:

This new visualization tool creates a soft shadow directly under a group of objects. This is an alternate to the default PhotoRendering method that uses a distant light offset.
 

LightWorks® PhotoRender Support of Imported Textures:

Texture materials imported using the OBJ, 3MF, 3DS, and SketchUp data translators are recognized using the photo rendering features, including screen renders as well as high-resolution output files.

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.
 

Weight and Volume Tables New Feature Video

Drafting and Annotation:

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.
 

Best Fit Line and Circle New Feature Video

Angular Tolerance Updates:

The Angular Tolerance interface has been updated to dynamically provide input from the Inspector dialog box.
 

Angular Tolerance Updates New Feature Video

Usability:

AutoLayer:

AutoLayer is a tool that will automatically assign an entity to a layer based on the same shape or by entity name. Use AutoLayer to help organize files imported from other applications that do not support layering.

Save Layers With Views New Feature Video

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.

Interoperability:
