It also provides photorealistic and artistic rendering capabilities for presenting your designs. Read more about TurboCAD Pro Rendering

Lighting & Materials

A material editor, along with a complete library of materials, is included with TurboCAD Pro to define physically accurate materials, including reflective surfaces with ray tracing and radiosity. There is also support for lighting and luminance. Redsdk will substitute the materials and lighting of images previously rendered with Lightworks. Read more about TurboCAD Pro Lighting & Materials

External References (Xrefs)

All of the file formats that may be opened and imported, except bitmap images, may be used as an external reference (Xref). TurboCAD offers Xref clipping for dozens of file formats and binding of Xrefs, which can then be exploded and edited. Xref layers are also easy to manage, including with layer filters. Read more about TurboCAD Pro Xrefs

Software Developers' Kit (SDK)

TurboCAD Pro lets you extend the functionality of the application with the ability to develop new tools, functions, and behaviors.
