Page Set Up Wizard - Breeze through questions designed to help you define your drawing’s size and orientation, units of measurement, printing scale and viewpoints.

Advanced Handle-Based Editing - Save time and draw more accurately, more quickly. TurboCAD provides handles for scaling, but also for rotating, moving and aligning objects. Plus, the totally flexible design of the Conceptual Selector allows users to customize any visual and editing parameters available in the application (eg. Move, scale, or rotate).

Snaps & Geometric Alignment Aids - Draw lines quickly and let snap tools automatically align them with the closest center point, end point, or dozens of points you choose. Geometric alignment aids improve snap indicators.

Window or Crossing Selection - Users can select objects with a mouse by using the Window or Crossing methods similar to AutoCAD®. Drag the mouse from left to right to invoke Window mode and select only objects that are entirely within the blue window. Drag the mouse from right to left to invoke Crossing mode and select only objects that touch the green Crossing window.

2D & 3D Text Editing -Create and edit text without leaving your drawing. Plus, choose from thousands of colors for text and background.

Floating and Shaped Viewports - Create viewports of Model space in multiple Paper spaces. Edit your viewports by changing their shape or the layers that they display, with the ability to turn on/off layers per viewport. You can even render within a viewport.

3D Printer Optimized Optimized for 3D Printing - TurboCAD Deluxe both reads and writes STL files, the standard in 3D Printing world. TurboCAD Deluxe 3D printing features include surface simplification controls and a 3D Print button for 3D Systems printers.

Multiple Drawings/Multiple Paper Space - Build multiple drawings, each with multiple paper spaces, with independent settings (grid units, etc.); then use tabs to quickly switch between paper spaces.

Convert to Arcs Polyline - Convert a Bezier or Spline curve into a polyline composed entirely of circular arcs, or entirely of circular arcs and linear segments.

Stellated Polygon - Create star-shaped polygon objects in two clicks! Adjust properties for a variety of starred shapes.

Table Objects - Create a table on the fly, or import a table from DWG/DXF files.

Fill Schedule Wizard - Create and fill the schedule table with drawing information.

ARCHITECTURAL FEATURES

House Wizard - This big, time-saving tool creates a preliminary room-by-room design of a home, complete with closets, doors, garage and even decks!

Intelligent Walls - Self-healing walls automatically join and intersect as you design in 2D or 3D. View wall dimensions with a single-click.

Automatic Wall Openings - “Slide” doors, windows, arches or any shape to create “openings” in walls with linked 2D and 3D views. Even set vertical alignment properties. Dimensions display as doors and windows are inserted, showing the distance to and from the wall ends for easier, more precise placement. Plus, corresponding offset fields display in the Inspector Bar.

Parametric Doors & Windows - Window and Door dimensions can be scaled to meet your design needs. Further customize with materials and colors.

Hatch Patterns and Fills - Choose from over 70 hatch patterns (including colors) to visually identify various components of your drawing. Bitmaps, like your company logo, or gradient fills may also be used with transparency.

Fractional Dimensions - Display fractions in stacked, diagonal, or in-line layout to accommodate your personal preferences.

Point Marker Tool - Automatically number objects such as rooms, doors or windows. Great for creating legends, call outs, or simply mapping points and adding notes to your drawings.

MECHANICAL / 3D MODELING FEATURES

2D & 3D Boolean operations - Use two existing objects and combined, subtracted, intersected, or sliced to create a new object. Select multiple entities for addition or subtraction.

Revolve - Move a 2D object around a revolution axis to create a 3D object.

Extrude - Pull complex 3D models from simple 2D shapes.

Sweeps - Extrude shapes along a path, perfect for drafting irregular objects.

Chain Polyline - Chain Polyline allows for faster design by allowing you to connect intersecting objects or portions of objects into a single polyline which can be then extruded, revolved or swept.

3D Slice - TurboCAD makes it easy to slice, or divide, one or more 3D objects into new objects, by specifying the slicing plane. The 3D slice tool offers the ability to slice by line, by plane, by workplane, by surface, and by facet.

Color Transparency - Screen back the color of an object in the foreground to display or emphasize hidden details in the background.

Slot Tools - Three new slot tools for inventors, woodworking and furniture design include slot, circular slot, and circular slot by center and radius.

RENDERING

GPU Accelerated Drawing & Rendering Engine - TurboCAD Deluxe uses the Redway3d Redsdk drawing and rendering engine to speed design work and create stunning presentations. This drawing engine utilizes the power of supported on-board GPU or graphics boards for faster panning, zooming, and orbiting. It also provides photorealistic and artistic rendering capabilities for presenting your designs.

Lights and Luminances - Redsdk acts as both a real-time and a photo-realistic rendering engine. Therefore, it contains many lights and luminances used for different needs. Real-time draft mode rendering typically uses ‘centric lights’ point based light sources because the lighting cast is easy to calculate on graphics hardware. In the real world, these lights don't exist at all. All real lights (luminances) have an emitting geometry such as a lamp filament or a neon tube. These are called ‘physical’ lights, or luminances.


Physical lights produce smoother lighting than the one produced by centric lights.

The centric lights that are supported by Redsdk are:

  • Ambient light – An ambient light adds a constant omni-directional light source affecting everything equally.
  • Point light – The point light produces lighting in all directions radiating from a point.
  • Spot light – The spot light produces lighting radiating in a cone from the cone apex.
  • Directional light – A Directional light shines everywhere along a single direction continuing infinitely in that direction and at the same intensity.
  • Beam light – A Beam light shines along a single direction in a beam of a specified radius.
  • Area light – Area light sources are light that emit light from a specified rectangle.

The centric lights that are supported by Redsdk are:

  • Physical – emulates real world lights when assigned to any object
  • Sun light – emulates the light from the sun
  • Sky light – emulates the light from the sky and sun

Materials Library - Choose from or create your own realistic material patterns, transparency, reflectance, and texture types and settings as well as multiple wrapping options to make designs look like they will in real life.


Design Director - Organize, access, and explore design alternatives easily in the Design Director Palette. Create layer templates, light templates, camera templates and powerful layers for use on different designs. Layer filters, that are .dwg compatible, help you manage large, complex drawings with ease. TurboCAD Deluxe layers are AutoCAD compatible, including a layers dialog based upon ‘Design Center’.  

Floating and Shaped Viewports - Create viewports of Model space in multiple Paper spaces. Edit your viewports by changing their shape or the layers that they display, with the ability to turn on/off layers per viewport. You can even render within a viewport.

Multiple Drawings/Multiple Paper Space - Build multiple drawings, each with multiple paper spaces, with independent settings (grid units, etc.); then use tabs to quickly switch between paper spaces.

Colors, Brushes, Bitmap and Gradient Fills, and Transparency - 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.

INTEROPERABILITY

Industry Standard Files Supported - TurboCAD Deluxe nearly 30 industry-standard formats making it easy to share your work or as a companion product.

Click for PDF of file formats

Improved AutoCAD DWG/DXF Read/Write filters - TurboCAD has always offered excellent compatibility with native AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT files. Filter enhancements offers improved file sharing with AutoCAD 2016.

Xref Manager - Manage external references (Xrefs) like a parts catalog in your TurboCAD drawing. Xrefs can also be exported with DWG or DXF drawings for greater AutoCAD® file compatibility.

SketchUp SKP Read/Write Filters - TurboCAD 2017 offers both Read and Write file filters based on the latest SketchUp APIs. Import detailed information from your SketchUp model into TurboCAD. Supplemental rendering, lighting and materials information is also imported. You can also convert your TurboCAD models into native SketchUp (.SKP) files for seamless import into Google SketchUp.

3D Printer Support - Export 3D models to STL file format for rapid prototyping with 3D printers.
