New Features

Performance, User Interface & Usability:

Find Control in Custom Ribbon Page:

The Find feature allows users to search or find Command/Group/Pop-ups/Tabs in the Ribbon tree.
TurboCAD Ribbon

An Interactive Startup Splash Screen:

Splash Screen has been added as a Startup Screen when Launching TurboCAD for a better interactive user interface. The interactive screen displays recently created files and ability to open/create new file via the Create tab, allows user to learn about TurboCAD basics, including new feature videos, via the Learn tab, and get access to the latest information about TurboCAD, via the News tab.
TurboCAD Ribbon

Snap Improvement: Highlight Hit Graphic:

This feature highlights edges for snaps when you move a 3D object or connect two, 3D objects together. This option has been added to both the Drawing Aids window and the related settings have been added to the Program Setup/Preferences dialog box as Visual Effect Settings, selected – Visual Effect Settings.

Find Block in Blocks Palette:

A new search bar has been added to the Blocks Palette which allows user to find a block by its name in the Blocks Palette.
TurboCAD Ribbon

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.

2D Drafting and Editing:

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.
TurboCAD Ribbon

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.
TurboCAD Ribbon

Architectural:

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.
TurboCAD Ribbon

Rendering and Visualization:

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 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).
TurboCAD Ribbon

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.
TurboCAD Ribbon

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.
TurboCAD Ribbon

Interoperability:

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.
