Often referred to as variational sketching, the D-Cubed™ 2D DCM constraint manager from Siemens Industry Software Limited
gives you greater control and productivity. By setting up constraints, you get more done, create part families faster, incorporate red-
line changes more quickly, and have the flexibility to evaluate different designs with ease. Access a host of geometric and
dimensional constraints in TurboCAD Pro, as well as mid-point and pattern constraints with TurboCAD Pro Platinum. Read more
about TurboCAD Pro Parametric Constraints

Annotation
TurboCAD Pro includes tools necessary to rapidly annotate your designs. The Drafting Palette accelerates creating Views,
Sections, Elevations, Floorplans, and Detail Views in numerous display styles. A full range of Dimension types that are style driven
are available as well as Tables, Text, and Multi-Text tools as expected. Plus, dimension scaling in Viewports within a paper space
is automatic. Read more about TurboCAD Pro Annotation Tools

Symbols Library
TurboCAD Pro comes complete with a number of sample symbols as well as a much larger collection of parametric parts. This
program also includes several special parametric symbols used in certain types of annotation that help in communicating with
manufacturers.

Parametric Parts Manager
Create and consume parts that remain parametrically controlled even after insertion into your drawing. There is also a method to
draw variably constrained parts and convert them to parametric parts using a wizard. Because the parts can be saved individually,
like a symbol, libraries of .PPM objects can be created, shared, and reused from project to project. Read more about TurboCAD
Pro Parametric Parts Manager

Easy Design Director
The Design Director palette streamlines work and enhances productivity with advanced controls for Layers, Layer Filters, creating
Layer Sets, setting and saving Work Planes, controlling Named Views, and more.  Read more about the TurboCAD Pro Design
Director

Rendering & Visualization
TurboCAD Pro includes the Redway3d Redsdk drawing and rendering engine to speed design work and create stunning
presentations. This drawing engine utilizes the power of supported on-board GPU or graphics boards for faster panning, zooming,
and orbiting. It also provides photorealistic and artistic rendering capabilities for presenting your designs. Read more about
TurboCAD Pro Rendering

Lighting & Materials
A material editor, along with a complete library of materials, is included with TurboCAD Pro to define physically accurate materials,
including reflective surfaces with ray tracing and radiosity. There is also support for lighting and luminance. Redsdk will substitute
the materials and lighting of images previously rendered with Lightworks. Read more about TurboCAD Pro Lighting & Materials

External References (Xrefs)
All of the file formats that may be opened and imported, except bitmap images, may be used as an external reference (Xref).
TurboCAD offers Xref clipping for dozens of file formats and binding of Xrefs, which can then be exploded and edited. Xref layers
are also easy to manage, including with layer filters. Read more about TurboCAD Pro Xrefs

Software Developers' Kit (SDK)
TurboCAD Pro lets you extend the functionality of the application with the ability to develop 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. Even commercial plug-in applications may be developed and sold. Updated documentation and samples are provided
and there is a wiki and forum-based support online. Read more about TurboCAD Pro SDK

File Interoperability
TurboCAD makes it easy to maintain your intellectual property investment and share your work. TurboCAD Pro supports export of
3D models to 3D .PDF which can be viewed interactively with Acrobat Reader. Plus, users can open, insert, or embed up to 35 file
formats and export up to 28, including .DWG, .DXF (from R14 through 2016 including AutoCAD® Architecture extensions), .SKP

Render components of the active drawing can now be accessed more quickly so that if you want to repeat use of a material, luminance,
environment or render style, it's now bookmarked for easy access.

Improved Double Precision
All of the numerical values are now stored in double precision. This creates greater precision and accuracy.

Faster update of some objects in RedSDK mode
Auto-update of some objects like TurboCAD Camera and TurboCAD Light in RedSDK mode is now much faster.

NEW Redsdk 4.x Engine
Migration to Redsdk 4.x

Improved RedSDK Transparent fill support

GENERAL

NEW/Improved Mirror Copy Tool for 3D Objects
•  3D Mirror Options are now all part of the Part Tree to more easily manage changes.
•  New Mirror Along Face option lets users define a plane across which the Mirror operation should be performed.
•  New Try to Create Single Object option, if turned on, TurboCAD will try to add the original object and its mirrored copy

NEW Backup of Open Documents on Program Close
When this new option is on, all open documents are backed up on program close without prompting. Then when you next start the
program, the same documents are automatically reloaded so that you can continue working where you left off.

NEW File Buffer
When a file is closed or when the application is closed, this new option saves the Undo/Redo buffer and is re-loaded when the file is
reopened, so it can be used from the last design change.

NEW Untitled Documents
Documents that you have created but have not saved are now backed up using the name "Untitled" followed by a number and the
date/time. This name and number corresponds to those shown in the titlebar when you are editing new unsaved documents.

quick pull & 3D mirror copying.

New Spaces
Manage all your spaces through the design director including model space, and all paper spaces so you can handle spaces more
efficiently than the tab interface allows.

New Show Normals
The visualization of the normals make it easier to estimate the smoothness and orientation of the 3D objects, and to find
artifacts/defects on those objects.

Render Manager UI Improvements
Render Manager now support the Dark Theme

64-bit System Requirements:
Microsoft Windows 10, Windows 8* 64-bit, Windows 7 (64-bit), Vista (64-bit) - 4 GB RAM.

32-bit System Requirements:
Microsoft Windows 10, Windows 8*, Windows 7, Windows Vista**, Windows XP** - 4GB RAM.

*TurboCAD is designed for desktops or laptops that meet the indicated system requirements. Windows RT technology for use on
tablets is not supported.

** 32-bit version of TurboCAD Pro and Pro Platinum will run on XP and Vista platforms; however, these platforms are no longer being
officially supported.

IMPORTANT NOTICE TO SUBSCRIPTION CUSTOMERS - Subscriptions require an active internet connection in order to
maintain the subscription license.

Recommended:
Your experience with TurboCAD Pro and Pro Platinum will be greatly enhanced with a newer generation, higher speed CPU, and 8+
GB RAM

The optional GPU-accelerated Redsdk render modes require a supported graphic processing unit (either a chip on the board, or on a
video card). The latest video drivers are typically required. Newer boards with more power and VRAM generally provide greater
performance.
