TurboCAD Platinum is a professional 2D Drafting and 3D Solid Modeling CAD Solution for engineers, architects, manufacturers and other design professionals. It comes fully equipped with a powerful drafting palette, ACIS® solid modeling, premium photorealistic rendering, advanced architectural and mechanical tool sets, AutoCAD®-like 2D drafting interface options, and extensive file support.
Advanced technology—a powerful drafting palette, D-Cube constraints, and ACIS engine —enhance productivity. Advanced architectural and mechanical design tools add even greater flexibility and control, while superior rendering controls produce powerful presentations. Plus TurboCAD Platinum 2020 is programmable and supports over 40 file formats including .DWG, .DXF, .SKP, 3D .PDF, 3MF, FBX and .STL for 3D printing.
TurboCAD Platinum can help you design projects such as:
Advanced mechanical designs
Prototyping with 3D printers
Furniture design, woodworking, and cabinetry
Graphics and technical illustrations
Product and Packaging design
2D drafting, diagraming and schematic drawings
Custom manufacturing from CAD to CNC
ACIS®-Based Solid Modeling TurboCAD Platinum provides you with ACIS Solid modelling engine. Make your models realistic with solid objects that have volume and shape as well as a framework, skin (set of surfaces) encasing the framework, and inner "body".
Geo & Dimensional Constraints Make use of Smart Dimension tools that include parallel, orthogonal, rotated, and Auto Dimension tools to reliably display measurements of lines and angles.
Part Tree/History Tree View and revise changes and modifications performed on individual objects, groups or blocks to assess your progress.
Intelligent (Parametric) Architectural Objects Set parameters of your objects by easily selecting and conveniently modifying the specifications of your drawing.
Advanced Mechanical Design Tools TurboCAD Platinum employs a large selection of mechanical tools such as line, arc, and spline tools so that you have always got the right tools for the job.
Programmable SDK & Ruby Scripting Use the SDK tools in the TurboCAD add-ons menu. Use the Ruby console to run functions, load Ruby scripts, or define new functions.
3D Mapping Tools Two, 3D mapping tools: Face UV Representation and Surface on Face have been added to TurboCAD. Face UV Representation is used to get a UV representation of the selected ACIS® face as a separate object. Surface on Face is used to get a 3D surface from a selected UV representation, and 2D contour, which lies on the UV representation.
Visualize Render Mode A new render mode “Visualize” has been added to the TurboCAD 2021. Visualize supports several device modes: OpenGLES2, OpenGL and GDI, out of which OpenGLES2 is the most advanced and the most productive device mode.
Progress meter for Interop Filters A new progress meter has been added to read/write STEP and VDA files.
PROFESSIONAL 2D/3D CAD SOFTWARE: TurboCAD 2021 Platinum is professional 2D/3D CAD software for users who need advanced capabilities at an affordable price. This product has an unparalleled selection of tools to create everything from advanced mechanical design to musical instruments. Some of our key features include
2D DESIGN AND EDITING: TurboCAD is rich in professional 2D/3D design tools and drawing aids that speed design. Create views and viewports of any size and shape. Access extensive paper space and printing options. Multi-select drawing tool, dimension tools, and more. Read more about 2D Design in TurboCAD
2D GEOMETRIC AND DIMENSIONAL CONSTRAINTS: By setting up Constraints in a drawing, TurboCAD users have greater control to enforce design intent, as 2D Constraints typically drive 3D model design. Read more about Parametric Constraints. Read more about Parametric Constraints
PART TREE/HISTORY TREE: Maintains your design history. Return to any procedural step in your design and make modifications without losing subsequent work. Works like a Selective UNDO/REDO. Read More about the Part Tree
ACIS SOLID MODELING / ADVANCED MECHANICAL DESIGN: TurboCAD Platinum provides advanced 3D surface and ACIS® solid modeling tools. 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. Access advanced modification tools like bend, unbend, and facet offset make it easier to modify existing geometry. Smooth surface mesh / sub-D modeling tools are also available allowing for the creation of more organic shapes. Read more about TurboCAD Solid Modeling. Read More about TurboCAD Solid Modeling
ARCHITECTURAL & GIS TOOLS: An integrated suite of architectural tools are included, such a parametric architectural objects that are AutoCAD® Architecture (ACA) compatible so that .DWG models with ACA extensions may be read, modified, and documented as needed. Read More about TurboCAD Architectural Tools
POWERFUL DRAFTING PALETTE: Create associative views, 2D sections, and detailed views that can be updated in real-time – even from an Xref. Works with both ACIS® Solids and Surface models. Read More about the Drafting Palette
ADVANCED 3D SURFACE MODELING: Includes a complete set of 3D surface modeling and editing tools making it ideal for both single part and small assembly mechanical designs. Platinum has advanced surfaces, and also smooth surface meshes. Read more about 3D Surface Modeling in TurboCAD. Read more about Advanced 3D Surface Modeling
PROFESSIONAL MECHANICAL CAD NATIVE FILE TRANSLATORS: Import 3D model designs from enterprise CAD Modelers such as CATIA, SolidWorks, Solid Edge, Inventor, NX and ProE
PROGRAMMABLE (SDK & RUBY SCRIPTING): Extend the functionality by developing new tools, functions, and behaviors. Custom routines that are performed on a regular basis can be automated. Specific tools for vertical applications can be created and added. Read more about Programming for TurboCAD
POINT CLOUD SUPPORT: Use your 3D scanner to collect data about an existing object’s dimensions, and import the point cloud files into a drawing in TurboCAD 2020 Platinum.
DESIGN DIRECTOR PALETTE: Provides advanced controls for Layers, Layer Filters, creating Layer Sets, setting and saving Work Planes, controlling Named Views, and more to streamline work and enhance productivity. Read more about the Design Director Palette. Read More about the Design DirectorP
PHOTOREALISTIC RENDERING & VISUALIZATION: The LightWorks® rendering engine creates stunning presentations. Render management of materials, luminance, environments, and advanced render styles give you truly photorealistic results. An optional rendering plug-in from Redway takes advantage of your computer’s GPU and produces faster, stunning photorealistic images. Read more about TurboCAD Visualization features.
