MECHANICAL / 3D MODELING FEATURES
2D & 3D Boolean operations - Use two existing objects and combined, subtracted, intersected, or sliced to create a new object. Select multiple entities for addition or subtraction.
Revolve - Move a 2D object around a revolution axis to create a 3D object.
Extrude - Pull complex 3D models from simple 2D shapes.
Sweeps - Extrude shapes along a path, perfect for drafting irregular objects.
Chain Polyline - Chain Polyline allows for faster design by allowing you to connect intersecting objects or portions of objects into a single polyline which can be then extruded, revolved or swept.
3D Slice - TurboCAD makes it easy to slice, or divide, one or more 3D objects into new objects, by specifying the slicing plane. The 3D slice tool offers the ability to slice by line, by plane, by workplane, by surface, and by facet.
Color Transparency - Screen back the color of an object in the foreground to display or emphasize hidden details in the background
Slot Tools - Three new slot tools for inventors, woodworking and furniture design include slot, circular slot, and circular slot by center and radius.
Photorealistic rendering engine - TurboCAD Deluxe 2018 uses the LightWorks rendering engine to create stunning presentations, integrates directly with TurboCAD's Material Editor and includes Luminance and other lighting controls
Lights and Materials - A material editor, along with a complete library of materials, is included with TurboCAD Deluxe 2018 to define physically accurate materials, including reflective surfaces with ray tracing and radiosity. There is also support for lighting and luminance. LightWorks will substitute the materials and lighting of images previously rendered with RedSDK
Design Director - Organize, access, and explore design alternatives easily in the Design Director Palette. Create layer templates, light templates, camera templates and powerful layers for use on different designs. Layer filters, that are .dwg compatible, help you manage large, complex drawings with ease.
