We will help you learn

While TurboCAD Mac is feature rich, we work hard at making it easy by including intuitive tools like our LogiCursor™ that makes CAD a snap by suggesting your next move as you draw.

Your purchase also includes access to our training tutorials, so you will not have to learn through trial and error. We are experts at creating CAD software and our tutorials will help you to become an expert user quickly.

 Intuitive Design and Editing Utilities

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.

3D Printing Tools

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.

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.

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.
 

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:

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.

Show/Hide Face New Feature Video

Save Layers with view:

Now you have the ability to save layers associated with view orientations.
