- New Slab Roof Object Types - TurboCAD Pro Platinum 2016 for Windows now allows users to make a roof slab object type. With one slab, you can quickly create a flat roof, or use in conjunction with new roof angles, mitering, and edge cut tools to join several slabs together and create nearly any roof style.
- New Mitering of Roof Slabs - Select two or more roof slabs and have them "meet" automatically.
- New Roof Edge Cut Orientation - A new "Edge cut" roof property for roof slabs allows users to select different methods of roof building, either plumb or square.
- Improved Roof Modifier -Now you can quickly create holes in roofs for chimney's, skylights, etc. and trim edges of roofs.
- Improved Drafting and Detailing
- Improved Format Painter Tool - Use the Format Painter to transfer Custom Properties and Property Set Definitions (PSD) from one object to another. This huge productivity improvement is also a crucial feature for extending BIM/IFC models.
- Improved Dimension Text - Dimension Text can be set to Non-rotatable. With this property selected, dimension text will always face the user no matter the orientation of the drawing.
- Sorted Layers in Drop Down Lists - The Layers in the drop down and simple lists are now sorted as per the Design Director. If you change the control view order in Design Director the same ordering will be in all other Layer controls.
- Improved Trim Tools - New ability to trim hatched or closed objects and maintain the hatch or closure.
- New Dimension Units Format 'By Drawing' - Users can now globally define dimension units at the drawing level.
- Improved Join Polylne Tool - The Join Polyline Tool now works on Beziers and splines without converting them to a polyline, so that their original curve status is maintained.
- Mechanical/3D Modeling
- Improved Quick Pull - The popular Quick Pull tool now offers multiple selection, so you can manipulate several co-planar faces simultaneously. You can also thicken ACIS surfaces with the Quick Pull tool, and dynamically switch between Quick Pull and Imprint modes.
- New Wire Wrapping - Wrap a wire around a 3D solid for use as an extrusion or sweep path.
- Create Surface from Faces - When using the ACIS tool 'Create Surface from Faces' users can now retain the source object.
- Create Surface from Solid - When using the 'Create Surface from Solids' tool, users can now retain the source object.
- Improved Smooth Surface Mesh Tools - TurboCAD Pro Platinum 2016 for Windows now offers a set of tools for editing a Smooth Surface Mesh (SMESH) as symmetrical model.
- Improved Drafting Object Breaks - When a drafting object is too large to display fully, TurboCAD Pro Platinum 2016 for Windows allows users to add a break gap to abbreviate the displayed object, adjusting the break line properties including type (straight, zig-zag, wave, or heartbeat), gap value, color, and extension length. New TurboCAD Pro Platinum 2016 for Windows supports multiple breaks per drafting object.
- Improved Unbend Sheet Tool - Now users can request to generate the required bend lines when the Unbend Sheet tool is used.
- Rendering & Visualization
- Dynamic Cutaway Plane - Cut away plane, for looking inside a 3D model, now works in draft mode, in mixed draft and wireframe, and in mixed draft and hidden line modes.
- Redsdk Improvement - Redsdk updated to the 18.104.22.168 Engine.
- Redsdk Materials Improvement - New Displacement Shader in the RedSDK materials.
- Improved DWG/DXF Read/Write Filters - TurboCAD Pro Platinum 2016 for Windows now uses the latest Teigha engine for the conversion of .dwg and .dxf files to/from different versions. Dynamic blocks are imported as simple blocks.
- New SketchUp SKP 2015 Support - Import/export of SketchUp 2015 files is now supported.
- New Visual Effects for Exported Images - For any image that has been added to a TurboCAD Pro Platinum 2016 for Windows drawing, you can now control the brightness, contrast, saturation, and transparency.
- Advanced Architectural Design and Simple BIM
- TurboCAD Pro Platinum 2016 for Windows speeds design with an extensive collection of parametric object types and shapes for walls and compound walls, doors, windows, stairs, railings, roofs, and slabs. Use the style manager to create and manage how objects are defined, look and behave, or choose from the many pre-configured styles. Accurately manage data with dynamic window and door schedules and use the sections/elevation tool to examine custom cross sections of architectural designs.
TurboCAD Pro Platinum 2016 for Windows also lets you create custom properties to objects, property sets, and entry marks to display the data next to specific objects in a drawing. New version 21 now allows users to extract that custom data as well as geometry from walls, doors, windows, slabs, and roofs, and export to IFC format, the industry standard for BIM information
- Advanced Mechanical Design Tools
- TurboCAD Pro Platinum 2016 for Windows offers advanced tools for 3D solid and surface modeling. The thread tool, twisted extrude, extrude to face, imprint tool, parametric holes, imprint and more enable the easy creation of your more complicated professional designs. A new ACIS R24 3D solid modeling engine in TurboCAD Pro Platinum 2016 for Windows offers better modeling, improvements to ACIS file filters, and enhancements to several features based on this engine.
- Advanced Modification Tools
- TurboCAD Pro Platinum 2016 for Windows a number of tools that enhance 3D modification for facet editing, lofting, bending and unbending of objects. These tools become even more powerful when combined with the Advanced Part Tree.
- Advanced Part Tree
- TurboCAD Pro Platinum 2016 for Windows greatly expands on the Part Tree technology in TurboCAD Pro. Often referred to as history-based editing, the Part Tree can be used as a selective UNDO/REDO tool. And unlike with TurboCAD Pro basic, each of the design and modification tools, and most of the 3D primitives, may be driven by this Advanced Part Tree.
- Smooth Surface Mesh 3D Modeling Tools
- TurboCAD Pro Platinum 2016 for Windows allows you to use existing 3D modeling tools to create a smooth surface mesh (smesh). Users can control the resolution, smoothness and more. This form of 3D object creation allows for easier and more rapid creation of organic shapes.
- Associative Arrays / Pattern Tools
- TurboCAD Pro Platinum 2016 for Windows patterns are arrays objects copied in specific arrangements and controlled parametrically. Create patterns from a variety of entities and apply to spheres and cylinders, radial patterns, 3D arrays, along a curve, and on polyline for shapes that couldn't easily be drawn.
- Platinum Parametric Constraints
- TurboCAD Pro constraints are enhanced in the TurboCAD Pro Platinum 2016 for Windows with two additional constraints. The first is a Midpoint Constraint, and the second is the ability to create pattern constraints.
- UV Mapping
- Create more realistic and varied materials for rendering. Use UV mapping to project a 2D image onto a 3D object where "U" and "V" are the names of the axes of plane. It's a powerful tool perfect for use in photorealistic rendering.
