- Audit note
- 2 types of spline curves
- Copy matrix for the design of repetitive objects
- Boolean union, difference and intersection
- Trimming and extending multiple objects
- Stretching, dividing, connecting, breaking, extending, joining 2 lines
- 2D queries: angle, area, point coordinates, distance
Dimensioning and text functions are essential for every CAD drawing. TurboCAD 2D contains:
- Intelligent, Fast and Baseline tool types for automatic dimensioning.
- Associative dimensions - free movement, rotation or scaling of associated objects. The dimensioning keeps its position relative to the object. The dimension text is automatically updated when changes are made.
- Precise dimensioning with accuracy to 10 decimal places.
- Available formats: Architectural, Fracture, Technical, Decimal, Land Survey.
- Multitext formatting and scaling options.
- Linear and angular dimensions allow you to specify a fixed length for extension lines.
- Units of measurement can be defined globally by drawing level.
Selection point & path hatching, bitmap fills and transparency
TurboCAD offers a transparency option for hatch patterns and gradient fills. Custom bitmaps, such as your company logo, can also be used. This allows construction or assembly details to be presented much more clearly and precisely.
Editing with handles
Save time and draw more accurately and faster. TurboCAD provides handles for scaling, rotating, moving and aligning objects.
Super selection modes
Super selection modes provide more precise control over object selection and drawings can be edited faster and easier. The "Use Previous Selection" function allows the user to quickly jump to and restore the previous selection where there was a change.
- The rectangular drag mode is a bidirectional selection mode.
- Window polygon drag mode only selects objects that are completely inside a closed polygon.
- Crossing polygon drag mode allows you to select objects that are completely inside or cross a closed polygon.
- Fence drag mode only selects objects that are touched by the open polygon or "fence" created in this mode.
Right-click to access recently used tools and input values or to change or reset reference points. When a TurboCAD tool is active, the local menu also provides a context-based toolbar with similar tools and functions.
You can save your drawing in PDF format for easy sharing with others. You can also export paper areas, adjust fonts and define the height and width of the paper.
CAD and graphic compatibility
The file exchange with other users and between other programs works very easily. TurboCAD supports the most popular industry-standard file formats, including the latest DWG/DXF filters for working with AutoCAD® 2017.
User-friendliness & user interface
TurboCAD 2018 / 2019 offers a choice of user interfaces. New is the Ribbon interface, which is similar to the user interface used in Microsoft Word and the latest AutoCAD versions. For users of older versions the classic user interface type is still available.
TurboCAD can be customized according to individual preferences, so that every user can work in the familiar environment. Various topics are available for the user interface. When the program starts, a pop-up dialog box appears in which the preferred environment can be easily set.
NEW! Keyboard shortcuts
2, 3, 4 or 5 keyboard commands
This brilliant new feature is designed to revolutionize the way you use TurboCAD! Users can now combine keyboard commands from two or more keystrokes to quickly execute any TurboCAD command. The keystrokes can be executed in sequence, no key combination is required.
The keyboard commands are first triggered by pressing and releasing the Ctrl key. Afterwards, you press a series of keys to call up a specific command. This allows the user to operate the keyboard with the left hand and the mouse with the right hand, which greatly increases productivity.
NEW! Display of user-defined key combinations in the context menu
NEW! Isolate and hide objects
This great new feature allows the user to edit complex drawings more easily. Selected objects can be isolated independently from layers or groups. In this way, objects to be edited can be brought into focus, while more complicated or overlapping objects can be avoided.
In addition to isolating certain objects, it is also possible to hide additional objects so that only those objects that are important for the editing process are displayed. When the "Fade in" option is selected, the drawing returns to its original state.
NEW!Search option for finding user interface functions
This excellent new feature allows you to quickly find specific commands within the Customize dialog box. In this way, commands or their key combinations can be found quickly. The user interface can be customized by dragging a function icon to a toolbar or by creating a custom keyboard command. By entering a word in the search field, the matching commands can be found.
Buttons next to the input field highlight the previous or next matching element. The search history is stored in a drop-down list, which speeds up a subsequent search for the same entry. A search combo box is displayed for materials, luminances, environments and advanced rendering styles.
Design and editing in 2D
NEW! Catch between two points
This snap mode allows you to snap the center point between two successively selected points. This eliminates the need to create guides/circles to snap the center between two points.
NEW! Cutting through object
This interesting new command allows you to trim multiple objects using a closed 2D profile that works like a cookie cutter. All objects within the defined profile are trimmed and removed. This eliminates the need to select multiple objects for trimming using a cut edge.
This tool with options for width and corner type can be applied to groups of objects consisting of lines/polylines/circles/arcs that are on the same plane. The profiles are automatically thickened according to the defined width. This creates a series of polylines, connected polylines (these two options are available for TurboCAD versions without ACIS), a range or series of ACIS sheet metal elements (TurboCAD Pro only).
This tool smoothes 3D polylines and 3D spline curves so that they lie flat on the work plane. This command sets the Z values of the vertexes of these element types to zero so that they can be used in a 2D environment.
NEW! Improved selection point hatching
The selection point hatching tool now overlooks minor design errors. This allows you to define an error margin for the distance to automatically fill the gap if a border line is not 100% closed. This margin can be adjusted using the "Gap" value in the control bar. Since 100% accuracy with regard to closed curves or polylines is now optional, hatching processes are considerably accelerated.
NEW! Test system
The Selection Information palette now contains a check function. The test system enables you to highlight 'bad' objects in the Selection Information palette, switch test conditions on/off and change their parameters. You can also create inspection reports for one or more objects, filter 'bad' objects in the Selection Information palette and forward notifications of 'bad' objects to the Event Viewer.
NEW! Property for expansion quantity
The expansion size parameter has been added to the properties of the Selection Information palette. The expansion size parameter works with groups, blocks and inserts. The expansion size property can be used to select objects based on size values.
Objects within any size range can be selected. This function offers additional flexibility and can be used in many ways, e.g. to analyze possibly "wrong" objects.
NEW! Zoom diagnostic message
A new message was introduced for zoom operations. It appears when the user tries to enlarge or reduce an area outside the maximum allowable zoom factor.
NEW! OK and Cancel buttons in the Insert Break dialog box
The new OK and Cancel buttons in the Insert Break dialog box of the Text Editor provide better usability.
NEW! Select by object type
TurboCAD now recognizes two separate object types: Circle and ellipse. The same applies to circular and elliptical arcs. Previous versions could not select circles and ellipses separately.
