Exceptional Value in Professional 2D/3D CAD TurboCAD® Mac Pro delivers unparalleled value and productivity in a professional 2D/3D CAD package. Fully integrated 2D drafting tools, 3D surface and ACIS® solid modeling tools, assembly tools, advanced architectural tools, and powerful LightWorks photorealistic rendering are accompanied by thousands of symbols, materials, decals, and pre-drawn floorplans. Customizable toolbars, set-up wizard, and context sensitive help enhance usability, while the block manager and the ability to quickly organize layers and layer sets optimize drawing management. Plus complete printing and publishing tools as well as extensive file support including new AutoCAD 2013 .DWG meet the needs of professional architects, engineers, illustrators, designers, and more.
Advanced 2D/3D Architectural Design Choose from 1,000 included pre-designed floor plans, or start from scratch with the help of our Drafting Assistant. TurboCAD Mac’s self-healing walls auto-dimension as they are drawn, auto trim wall vertices, and allow for assignment of a hatch pattern and color. When parametric doors and windows are added to walls, the built-in intelligence automatically creates the needed openings. New version 6 lets smart wall, windows and doors be drawn and displayed in both 2D and 3D simultaneously with additional enhancements for exceptional architectural design.
Powerful Lighting & Rendering Options Use powerful rendering and lighting tools to create professional presentations of your design ideas. Create photorealistic renderings for true-to-life presentations, or use the new sketch rendering options for stills and animations that look hand-drawn, appropriate in the early stages of conceptual design.
Flexible CAD & Graphic Design Formats Easily import existing designs from popular CAD and graphic design file formats, including new AutoCAD® 2011.DWG. Just as easily, export your precision designs and technical drawings from TurboCAD to other CAD formats, or choose a popular desktop publishing formats such as EPS TIFF, CGM and more, to create brochures or other marketing materials. Even print design to your specifications with new options for better control of how the printed document will look.
The Ultimate in Design Productivity TurboCAD® Mac Pro makes it easy to design in 2D or 3D. Use the new multi-step wizard to quickly set up your drawing, defining unit format, paper size, print, drawing scale annotation settings, text and dimension. Plus, customizable toolbars and more enhance usability including: • New Context Sensitive Help System to get help with any tool instantly • New Gripper Tool to dynamically move, rotate, & scale objects in 2D or 3D • New Viewport Layouts display multiple views of your drawing at once • New 3D Connexion Space Mouse as well as traditional mouse support • New Multi-step Drawing Wizard to quickly set up your drawing • New Custom Toolbar Creation for quick access to your favorite tools • Layers and Layer Sets to organize and more easily edit your design • Block Manager to create, edit, and manage 2D/3D blocks • Over 38,000 2D/3D symbols and parts for AEC, Mechanical, Electrical, Process Plant and Piping
Complete Set of 2D Drafting Tools TurboCAD Mac Pro provides unlimited 2D design options. Choose from a number 2D drafting tools including line, arc, curve, circle, ellipse, and spline tools. Access text, dimensioning tools, modifier and transformation tools for easy editing. Here is a sampling of 2D tools. • New Polygon Tools – Slot polygon, N-Sided polygon, and polygon from curves tool. • New Conic Tools, a.k.a. conic section tools, allow users to easily obtain a curve generated by the intersection of a cone with a plane. • Connect Curve Tool - Join Option - The Join Curve option replaces the two curves you select with a new spline curve. This tool will also join two polylines • Sketch Spline Tool – samples points as the cursor moves and creates a smooth spline through the sampled data. Once selected this tool has two options, the Sketch Spline tool and Sketch on a Surface tool. • Fair Spline Tool - The Fair Spline command provides a tool to globally smooth a curve. Fairing a spline optimally moves control vertices to locations that minimize large curvature variations.
More Professional Features TurboCAD Mac Pro provides unlimited design options with its complete set of 2D/3D design tools, plus advanced tools for professionals.

New Part Tree TurboCAD Mac Pro now offers a fully editable, hierarchal part tree for Solids and Surfaces. The Part Tree can be viewed as a selective UNDO/REDO tool: adjust the parameters of a bend, for example, without having to UNDO the design steps that have been made to the model since the parameter of that object were originally set. Each subsequent step will be applied correctly on the newly updated geometry.
Printing, Publishing & PDF TurboCAD Mac Pro offers a variety of ways to share your work. The new Print by Layer Tool is extremely useful when you have multiple sets of data within one file that needs printing. For less complex jobs, a new Print Window option allows users to simply drag the mouse over the area of your design you wish to print. Use page layouts to publish your design from up to 4 different view angles on a single page, controlling text size and more. Save designs as single or multi-page PDFs for sending via email, or export to one of the many desktop publishing formats for placement in brochures and more.
