Dimensioning and Text are vital to any CAD Drawing. TurboCAD Designer includes:
TurboCAD allows for hatch patterns and gradients to be layered with transparency. Custom bitmaps, such as your company logo, may be used as well. This empowers you to much more clearly and precisely communicate construction or assembly details.
Save time and draw more accurately, more quickly. TurboCAD provides handles for scaling, but also for rotating and moving objects.
Drag modes offer precise control over object selection for faster, easier modification of your drawing. Also, a previous selection function allows users to quickly jump back to the last selection with which there was a modification, and restore the selection.
The TurboCAD context menu (right-click) provides access to recently used tools, recently entered values, and a quick way to change or reset reference points. If a TurboCAD tool is active, the context menu provides a contextual toolbar as well, with additional similar tools and functions.
Save your drawing as PDF documents for easy sharing. Plus, export paper spaces, customize your fonts and define your paper widths and heights.
Sharing your files with others and among other programs is easy. TurboCAD supports the most current and popular industry-standard file formats including the latest DWG/DXF Read/Write Filters for working with AutoCAD® 2016.
