Premium 2D/3D CAD Software
TurboCAD Platinum is our top-of-the-line professional 2D/3D CAD application. Access a powerful drafting palette, ACIS® solid modeling, premium photorealistic rendering, advanced architectural and mechanical tool sets, AutoCAD®-like 2D drafting interface options, and extensive file support.
Customizable Ribbon Interface: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. UI Themes are also full supported in the Ribbon.
4K Monitor Support:With new, scaleable vector icons, TurboCAD is now fully optimized for 4K monitors. Through dynamic sliders, toolbar icons, the User Interface and other icons in other part of the UI can be resized to optimize readability on higher resolution displays.
Named View Enhancements:New functionality has been added where users now have the option of associating Layer Sets with Named Views, giving users a much better way to manage Layers Sets.
Select by Similar:This powerful tool allows users 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.
Note: Shape filter has been added in Select by Similar option. This feature is use to select the similar objects of same Shape/Size in the drawing. The Shape filter compares geometry measurements such as Area, Perimeter, Volume, Surface Area, number of Vertices/Edges/Faces to determine if the two objects are same. Select Similar – Shape feature is designed for all kinds of drawing. Access “Shape” option from Edit on toolbar menu: Edit -> Select By -> Similar.
Construct Similar Tool:This tool which takes properties from a referenced object and applies these to the construction of the next object. This tool provides a fast and efficient method to assign object properties such as line fonts, dimension styles, and wall properties with a single click.
Remove Overlapping Entities:The ‘Overkill’ tool removes overlapping lines, arcs, text and dimensions, thereby allowing you to simplify drawings by removing duplicate, redundant Entities. Event viewer shows the count of objects that were changed.
Pick Point Hatch:Pick-Point-Hatch now works with gaps in 2D objects. For example, trying to fill an area bounded by a Polyline, when there are gaps in the Polyline. Improvements to pick-point also apply to ADT objects (Walls, Doors and Windows), allowing to similarly fill in gaps between these objects.
Blend Tool:Three additional Blend types have been added to the Fillet Edges tool – G2 Continuous Curvature, Fixed Width and Three Face.
Sheet Metal:Multiple improvements have been made to the Sheet Metal tools, including: a new Property have been added to the Flange Sheet tool – Draft Angle; several new options have been added to the Inspector bar when using this tool - Start and End Offset, Start and End Angle; accuracy improvements to the Unbend tool and the ability track progress of this ACIS® operation and interrupt it if desired results are not seen.
Surface Extrude:Users can now select flat 3D polylines or 3D curves for Surface Extrude tools such as Revolve. Also, 3D Curve and Curve (2D) are now separate tools.
Architectural Desktop (ADT) Objects: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, Materials, 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.
BIM Tool:Data collection of IFC files has been improved, the BIM Palette now shows the BIM file structure, and the BIM tool and BIM Palette’s UI’s have now been more tightly integrated, making these architectural modeling parts of TurboCAD easier to use.
New LightWorks® rendering engine and Sun and Sky Shader:The LightWorks rendering engine has been upgraded to v9.3. New properties "sun dir by geo-location" and "dir by geo-location" added to "Sky" and "Sun" shaders correspondingly
RedSDK to LightWorks Porting:RedSDK rendered images are now more automatically, accurately and completely converted to a LightWorks rendered image.
AutoCAD 2019 Compatibility:TurboCAD 2019 now fully supports AutoCAD DWG, DXF and DWF file formats.
STL Filter - 3D Print Check:A 3D Print Check option has been added when exporting an STL file. This tool checks a part for common topological errors such as: non manifold edges, duplicated and collapsed facets, open edges, shells and more. The Print Check tool also displays geometry information such as extents, number of facets/vertices, area, and volume.
SAT/SAB/IGES/STEP - Support for Interop Face Color:When reading ACIS objects (SAT/IGES/STEP/SAB import), if ACIS object has colored faces, then the appropriate material is assigned to these faces.
FBX Filter:Export file format for 3D Animation Software such as 3DS, Maya. MotionBuilder and Mudbox.
FBX Filter:Export file format for 3D Animation Software such as 3DS, Maya. MotionBuilder and Mudbox. TurboCAD now supports material and textures import/export for FBX filter.
SAT Filter - Support for Curves:Updated the existing ACIS SAT file import/export to support curves such as lines, arcs, circles, ellipses, and splines. Previously in TurboCAD, ACIS file formats (SAT and SAB), only 3D objects are supported, along with their colors. However, this support for 2D entities allows the user to import the entire ACIS drawing. Geometry and Color are both supported for 2D entities.
SAB Filter:The Standard ACIS Binary (SAB) format is used by the ACIS modeling kernel from Spatial to share CAD data. Both SAB and SAT files contain geometry, topology, color, and limited attributes. Dimensions, annotations, groups, blocks, mesh, textures, and layers are not supported in these formats. Choosing SAB is especially beneficial when sharing with other ACIS based CAD systems where data is shared and not recalculated between different modeling kernels. TurboCAD supports both reading and writing SAB files..
