Feature-Based/History Tree View and revise changes and modifications performed on individual objects, groups, or blocks to assess your progress.
Model to Sheet Use floating model space to use model space tools in paper space to create and layout your drawing in TurboCAD Mac Pro.
Photorealistic Rendering with HDR Assign materials and luminance qualities to objects. Create a render scene environment to modify the background and foreground of your model.
File Import & Export Support TurboCAD Mac Pro enables you to import and export data from other TurboCAD formats, as well as formats of other CAD systems.

Associative surface modeling
3D Printing Tools
TurboCAD Mac Pro includes 3D printing tools to prepare and validate your designs to make them 3D printer ready.
3D Print Check: Checks for print viability, displaying warnings or errors to the user.
Surface Normals Check: Facet normals define the inside and outside areas of a part. If facet normals are pointing the wrong way, the 3D printer may have problems creating the part. This will check for problems and we have several commands that can help you fix it.
Overhang Analysis: This will help you visually inspect modeling areas that may require structural support for 3D printing. Meshes, surfaces, and solids facets normals are compared to the work plane direction. Angles that are less or equal to 45 degrees are highlighted as red.
Wall Thickness Analysis: This tool provides a means to visually inspect modeling areas that may be too thin for 3D printing. Meshes, surfaces, and solids facets are examined using ray intersections.
Preview Slices: This interface will help you to slice models given a direction and thickness. The dialog box allows for animation through the slices and single-stepping. Use to verify that a part has closed, non-overlapping sections, a requirement for 3D printing.
Auto Position: The Auto Position tool translates the model to the positive x, y coordinate system at z=0.
Support Structure: Manually adds geometry to support material as it is created by the 3D printer. Support structures controls, include Attach Radius, Midpoint Radius, Base Radius, Base Thickness, and Drag base and midpoints to modify structure location.
Show Printer Volume: Toggles the boundary of the default 3D Printer. The volume is defined within the Printer Definitions dialog box.
Printer Definitions: Sets key parameters of the 3D printer, including length, width, and height of the volume accessible by the printer. The parameters in the Printer Definitions dialog box are used for commands such as 3D Print Check and Auto Position.
Record, Publish, & PDF
Record your screen with QuickTime Recording including audio capture for creating videos and tutorials. 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.
