Design and Analysis Tools for Civil Engineers
Civil Design Suite for TurboCAD is a plug-in that enhances your TurboCAD Software (Deluxe, Pro or Platinum versions) with tools for road design and analysis, surveying and data collection, construction documentation, map production, storm and sanitary analysis and much more.
The Civil Design Suite for TurboCAD is a plugin to TurboCAD Deluxe, or TurboCAD Pro Platinum (2020, 2021, 2022). Add these tools to your TurboCAD software for road surface and road corridor design and analysis, grading, parcel design, map production, land surveying, water and sewer line documentation, and much more.
Import points using any of the supported CAD and Shape file types, to accurately create surfaces and solids.
Using the Triangular Irregular Network (TIN) tools to you will be able to filter and optimize your geometry.
Create major and minor contours with elevation data.
The TIN surface profile along a polyline allows users to (1) station interval distance, (2) plan view, (3) save data to the clipboard, and (4) save a simple graph to the clipboard. Click the image to enlarge and see an example of a plan view.
The Flow lines tool lets you display slope angles and direction at any desired point on your surface.
Access tools to quickly create surface cross-sections.
Generate an image map with colors based one elevation, aspect, or slope.
The Side Slope tool allows users to calculate the volume between two surfaces
The Road Surface and Corridor tools allow you to create roads and road cross sections. Click image for an example. Each cross section includes: (1) Cut area, (2) Fill area, (3) Incremental cut volume, (4) Incremental fill volume, (5) Total cut volume, and (6) Total fill volume. Click here for a sample cross section.
It starts by selecting a polygon. The vertices of the polygon are assumed to be the PIs (point of intersections) of the road to be designed or the water/sewer line to be documented. The tool allows you to define the curves that connect one segment between two PIs to the segment between the next PIs using a radius of the desired curve (or max available based on segment lengths). It allows you to depict the station offsets and distances with or without curves added. When curves are added their starts and ends are part of the object display and the text printout.

CivilDesignSuite Plug-in is delivered both in a 64-bit version to take full advantage of your hardware’s available computer memory to load, process, and render CAD files. The TurboCAD Deluxe , TurboCAD Pro and TurboCAD Platinum (2020 - 2023) are pre-requisite for Civil Design Suite Plug-in.
1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor
Microsoft Windows 11, Windows 10, Windows 8* 64-bit, Windows 7 (64-bit) - 4 GB RAM.
Your experience with Civil Design Suite will be greatly enhanced with a newer generation, higher speed CPU, and 8+ GB RAM
The optional GPU-accelerated RedSDK render modes require a supported graphic processing unit (either a chip on the board, or on a video card). The latest video drivers are typically required. Newer boards with more power and VRAM generally provide greater performance.
