• TurboCAD provides compatibility with AutoCAD® DWG and DXF files, from R12 to 2021
New Interface Option:TurboCAD LTE boasts a new variety of excellent user interface i.e. RIBBON INTERFACE similar to that found in Microsoft Word and the latest versions of AutoCAD.
Customizable Ribbon Configuration:Users now have the ability to fully customize the Ribbon Interface. You can now Add and Rename Tools, Groups and Tabs. In addition, Tabs may be hidden or renamed, and manually created XML Config files can be directly imported into TurboCAD LTE. UI Themes are also fully supported in the Ribbon.
Select by Similar - Select objects with shared or similar properties tool:A powerful new tool that allows you to select any 2D or 3D object type or a Block and then find all occurrences of that in the drawing. Very detailed selections can be made that include parameters such as pen color and style, brush color and style, layer, even the selected object’s coordinate system. A great tool to use in conjunction with making further global changes to that selected object.
Interactive Startup Splash Screen:Splash Screen has been added as a Startup Screen when Launching TurboCAD LTE for a better interactive user interface. The interactive screen displays recently created files and ability to open/create new file via Create tab, allows user to learn about TurboCAD LTE basics, including new feature videos, via Learn tab, and get access to the latest information about TurboCAD LTE, via News tab.
Viewport Hidden Line Performance Improvement:A new option “Use Hidden Line Cache” has been added to the cache section of the Viewport properties window. If this is turned on, Paper Space viewport processing (redraw, move, zoom) becomes significant faster for large drawings.
Keyboard Shortcuts:This brilliant new feature is set to revolutionize the way people use TurboCAD LTE! Similar to the functionality found in other products such as Generic CAD or AutoCAD, the user now has the ability to set up keyboard shortcuts that consist of either two or more keystrokes to quickly invoke any TurboCAD LTE command. These keystrokes are sequential and do not need to be a keyboard combination. The sequence of keys is initially invoked by pressing and releasing the Control (Ctrl) key and then a set of subsequent keys to invoke the specific command. This effectively allows the user to keep the left hand on the keyboard in the right hand on the mouse massively boosting productivity..
Automatic Updating of Xrefs:When using a file with Xrefs, if any of those external files are updated, then TurboCAD now asks if you want to regenerate the file with the updated Xref.
Leader Dimension Improvements:Leader dimensions in DWG files are now displayed correctly with TC2021.
Load/Unload Xrefs:A New option “Status”, with two values: “Loaded” and “Unloaded” has been added to the Edit Xrefs dialog box. When a referenced drawing (Xref) is Unloaded from the current drawing, the drawing opens much faster and uses less memory. When the Xref definition is unloaded from the drawing file, the internal pointer to the referenced drawing remains. You can therefore restore all the information by Loading the Xref. In order to maximize the performance of TurboCAD, it is recommended that you Unload any referenced files if they are not needed in the current drawing session but may be used later for printing/plotting.
Drafting Palette: Ability to select Layer Sets:As with Paper Space View Ports, the Drafting Palette now has an Option to select a Layer Set. The Layer Set can contain both visible and non-visible layers. Previously, drafting objects did not take into account the visibility; rather it considered all layers in the 3D object visible, so user may have gotten drafting object with un-needed information. This same Layer Set addition has been added to the Drafting Object via the local menu Properties.
Architectural Grid:The Architectural Grid is a new tool that makes it easy to align other architectural objects in the drawing, such as walls and columns. Users can also import rectangular grids from DWG drawings and can change the properties of the grid and bubble representation, via the Selection Info palette.
Array and Copy tool Improvements, performance enhancements for ADT Objects:Architectural Desktop (ADT) objects can now be completely and accurately used with Copy and Linear Array copy tools. For example, the Array Fit Linear now takes into account all of the properties of the ADT object being copied, including Work Plane, Layer etc. Previously, this tool could create only one roof object. Now, multiple objects may be created. In addition, the overall processing of all ADT objects in a drawing, including the House Wizard, has been significantly sped up.
Visualize Render Mode:A new render mode “Visualize” has been added to the TurboCAD 2021. Visualize supports several device modes: OpenGLES2, OpenGL and GDI, out of which OpenGLES2 is the most advanced and the most productive device mode.
Visualize Hidden Line and Draft Render Mode:'Visualize’ Rendering Type with both Hidden Line and Draft Render (including ‘Gouraud Shaded’ and ‘Flat Shaded’) modes has been added to ‘Camera PropertiesRendering’ page.
Visualize Wireframe vs Hidden Line vs Draft Render:
Visualize Import LightWorks® and RedSDK materials:The Visualize rendering technology includes the ability to import materials contained in TurboCAD files that have been rendered either by LightWorks or RedSDK. The Visualize renderer does not currently include its own native materials for TurboCAD. Currently, Visualize rendering supports color, texture, transparency map and bump maps, these parameters can be imported from LightWorks or RedSDK materials.
Visualize Anti-Aliasing:The Visualize renderer supports two types of Anti-Aliasing: Line Smoothing and Fast Approximation Anti-Aliasing (FXAA).
Visualize Lighting:Lighting options are included in Visualize. Options for this are set in Drawing Setup dialog box, and include the following parameters: Default Presets, Intensity. This could get enabled with OpenGLES2 device type.
Visualize Support images with alpha transparency:Support of images with alpha transparency is included in Visualize. When the Opaque Background option is disabled (it is enabled by default), it makes all pixels of a certain color transparent (100% transparency). In Visualize mode, the transparency of each pixel corresponds to the alpha transparency value for the given pixel, specified in the alpha channel.
Updated DWG and DXF support:Updated Read and Write support of DWG and DXF files.
Publish to PDF:Publish to PDF Combine functionality of 2D and 3D PDF filters have been integrated into a single tool “Publish to PDF”, which has been added to the File menu.
SKP filter updated:TurboCAD now supports Import and Export of the SketchUp 2021 file format.
PDF Insert / Underlay:The PDF Underlay tool allows you to insert a page of a PDF file into your drawing to use as reference or tracing layer. To use properly as a tracing layer, the file must be a vector PDF, rather than a bit-mapped PDF. AS a vector file, you will be able to snap to the endpoints and midpoints of lines in the PDF underlay. Underlays consist of two parts: the underlay style and the underlay insertion. Before inserting an underlay, you must first create an Underlay style, which is done through the Underlay Manager, found in the Tools menu of the Default interface, and in the Format menu of the Ribbon interface A new tool "PDF underlay to Objects" has been implemented. It gives the ability to convert an Underlay into an editable object..
