New Interface Options
TurboCAD boasts a new variety of excellent user interfaces including a new RIBBON INTERFACE similar to that found in Microsoft Word and the latest versions of AutoCAD. It also features an updated CADCourse INTERFACE with accelerated keyboard shortcuts for all the commands. Further for traditional users, the older CLASSIC INTERFACES type is included so that no matter which interface you prefer you will feel comfortable with the new program.
This brilliant new feature is set to revolutionize the way people use this software! Similar to the functionality found in other products such as Generic CAD or AutoCAD, the user now has the ability to set up keyboard shortcuts that consist of either two or more keystrokes to quickly invoke any tool command. These keystrokes are sequential and do not need to be a keyboard combination.
Isolate and Hide Objects
This terrific new feature allows you to take a complex drawing and quickly reduce its complexity by allowing you to select certain entities and to isolate them independent of layers or groups. In this way, you can focus on the entities that you’re wishing to edit while avoiding overlapping or otherwise complicated entities. In addition to isolating certain objects, you also have the choice of hiding additional objects so that you can focus only on the entities that are important during the editing procedure.
Search Option for Locating UI Features
This excellent new feature allows you to quickly search for particular commands within the customize dialog allowing you to quickly identify either the command itself or its keyboard shortcut. This will greatly enhance productivity as you can easily customize your interface to suit your own needs by dragging the icon onto a familiar toolbar or creating a new customized keyboard shortcut that you will remember.
Snap Between Two Points
Snap between two points that once chosen allows you to snap to the middle of two subsequent points, saving the effort of snapping to the center of a two-point construction circle, and then deleting the circle afterward.
Thick Profile tool
Applying thick profile tool with defined width and corners type options to groups of entities of lines/polylines/circles/arcs on the plane. It automatically calculates thicken profiles according to the width defined for original entities. It results in a set of polylines, a set of connected polylines (these two options are for the app versions with our ACIS), a region, or a set of sheet ACIS entities (those two are for the Pro version).
Trim by Entity
This interesting new command allows trimming of multiple entities by using a single 2D close profile as the cutting edge. All objects within the defined profile are trimmed and removed. This allows you to avoid having to select multiple objects to trim to just one cutting edge.
Pick Point Hatch Improvement
The pick point Hatch tool now has the ability to forgive small errors in design in that if a boundary line is not 100% closed you can specify an error margin distance so that the hatch command will automatically fill in the difference. This “error margin distance” is adjustable in the “Gap” value in the inspector bar and will greatly speed up hatching procedures as 100% accuracy in regard to closed curves or polylines is now optional.
Improved Coordinate Measure tool to include 3D
In earlier versions of Turbo CAD, the Measure Coordinates of the Point tool could only measure the X and Y values as it functioned like a 2-D tool fixed on the active workplace. Now, the measure coordinates tool behaves more like a 3D tool in that will show the 3D coordinate of the World coordinate system independent of the active user coordinate system.
New 2D Create option
A new option for "Create 2D" has been added for 3D polyline, 3D Spline tools. When you switch on this option, and polyline(spline) is flat then a 2D object is created instead of 3D.
Relative Angle Fields for Wall and polyline update
While drawing walls or polylines, you can now choose to enter an Angle (which is absolute in relation to the world coordinates) or a Relative Angle which is the angle from the immediately previous segment (arc or line).
Enhancements like "Lights only" for Lens flares, ability to minimize/maximize radius of Bounce and Gather, modify the intensity of Final Gather Controller for blurred shades, and Soft Pencil sketching are introduced in Render Styles.
A new “Audit” item has been added to the Filters menu of the Selection Info Palette. This Audit System enables you to highlight ‘bad’ objects in the Selection Info palette, turn on/off audit conditions and change their parameters, generate an audit report for one or more objects, filter ‘bad’ objects in the Selection Info palette.
Extents Size Property
The Extents Size parameter has been added to the Selection Info Palette properties. Extents Size parameter works with groups, blocks, and insertions. You can now use the ‘Extents size’ property to select an entity according to size valuation. Select objects that you think are big or small, or an object in any range you want. The Extents Size update provides you with additional flexibility so that you can use this parameter for various needs and for analyzing possibly corrupted “wrong” entities.
Note: 15 days trial version.
