The suite of architectural tools are AutoCAD® Architecture compatible is greatly expanded with TurboCAD Pro Platinum including parametric doors, windows, slabs, roofs, stairs, and rails, plus compound walls, schedules, and powerful section and elevation tools. Advanced mechanical design and modification tools offer parametric control over parts, symbols, patterns, and constrained arrays, while new smooth surface mesh tools allow for easier, rapid creation of organically shaped 3D models. Plus, the Advanced Part Tree in TurboCAD Pro Platinum is much more powerful offering greater control over each design and modification tool.
Advanced Architectural Design
Speed design with the extensive collection of parametric object types and shapes for walls and compound walls, doors, windows, stairs, railings, roofs, and slabs. Use the style manager to create and manage how objects are defined, look and behave, or choose from the many pre-configured styles. Accurately manage data with dynamic window and door schedules and use the sections/elevation tool to examine custom cross sections of architectural designs.
Advanced Mechanical Design Tools
TurboCAD Pro Platinum offers advanced tools for 3D solid and surface modeling, including new smooth surface mesh 3D 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.
Advanced Modification Tools
TurboCAD Pro Platinum includes a number of tools that enhance 3D modification for facet editing, lofting, bending and unbending of objects. These tools become even more powerful when combined with the Advanced Part Tree.
Advanced Part Tree
TurboCAD Pro Platinum greatly expands o n the Part Tree technology in TurboCAD Pro. Often referred to as history-based editing, the Part Tree can be used as a selective UNDO/REDO tool. And unlike with TurboCAD Pro basic, each of the design and modification tools, and most of the 3D primitives, may be driven by this Advanced Part Tree.
TurboCAD patterns are arrays of solid ACIS 3D objects copied in specific arrangements and controlled parametrically. Apply patterns to spheres and cylinders, radial patterns, 3D arrays, along a curve, and on polyline for shapes that couldn’t easily be drawn. Patterns are solid objects and they and/or their elements can be manipulated by 3D tools, like Bend; and patterns can be modified with Boolean operations with other 3D objects.
TurboCAD Pro constraints are enhanced in the TurboCAD Pro Platinum with two additional constraints. The first is a Midpoint Constraint, and the second is the ability to create pattern constraints.
Plus All TurboCAD Pro Features & Tools
TurboCAD Pro Platinum is our most comprehensive CAD product for 2D and 3D design, documentation, detailing, and modeling. In addition to the tools above for greater control and flexibility, it includes all the tools found in TurboCAD Pro.

MORE POWERFUL TOOLS
NEW Smooth Surface Mesh 3D Modeling Tools
Now you can use existing 3D modeling tools like the Box and Sphere tool to create a smooth surface mesh. Users can set values to specify the tessellation, or resolution, of the resulting smooth mesh. This new form of 3D object creation allows for easier and more rapid creation of organic shapes. There are also a number of editing tools for greater control over a 3D model.
NEW Smoothness Setting
This new setting allows users to control the smoothness level on a smooth mesh.
NEW Smooth Surface Mesh Moving Tool
This editing tool allows users to move the edges and faces of smooth meshes.
NEW Smooth Surface Mesh Crease Tool
Pick an edge between contiguous faces and create a crease or sharp edge in a smooth mesh.
NEW Smooth Surface Mesh Refine Face Tool
Sub-divide any selected face or faces to create higher local resolution for modeling.
NEW Smooth Surface Mesh Merge Facets Tool
Merge selected contiguous faces into a single face.
NEW Smooth Surface Mesh Extrude Face Tool
Use this tool to extrude the face of a smooth mesh.
New/Improved 1stPricing Palette
Back by popular demand, the 1stPricing Palette has returned, so architectural symbols can be added to the TurboCAD drawing and then an online, real-time price quote can be obtained through the 1stPricing palette. This latest version now includes support for parametric windows, doors, and skylights.
Improved Standard Modify Tools
Most standard modify tools, such as Trim, Split, and Meet 2 Lines, will now work with walls.
Assign longitude and longitude to a point in your drawing – useful for surveyors and civil engineers for location of drawing elements.
New Compass Rose
New compass rose icon can now be placed in your design to displays north direction.
We’ve completely updated program icons and menu colors to a more contemporary look. But you’re not locked in. If you’re happy with the ways things are, we’ve included the option to return to our classic UI.
NEW ePack File Packaging
Use the new ePack file packaging feature to collect all associated files, fonts, and Xrefs into a common folder for easy distribution.
NEW Page Layout Wizard
New wizard makes for rapid creation of 2D layouts from an existing 3D model. Two modes are provided to facilitate optimum results for either Architectural or Mechanical models. Layout preferences can be saved for later use.
NEW Draw by Layer PLUS
This new setting allows users to apply general property changes to all tool presets. Once activated, when changes are made to the properties (Layer, Pen, and Brush) of a selected tool, those changes are applied to all tools.
NEW “Keep Center of Extents” selector mode option
New selector mode option scales around the center point of an object making changes symmetric.
NEW Drawing Compare
Instantly identify the difference between two CAD drawings, raster images, or PDF files from dozens of different applications. Now included with TurboCAD Pro, this utility lets you simply select two drawings and perform a visual comparison of the two. Compare differences in 3D files, as well as 2D, in a variety of ways. Select “Zoom to Differences” to quickly spot updates, or use the toggle feature to locate changes. Once you’ve identified them, there are options to switch from one image to the other, to show only the differences, or to have the differences blink, quickly highlighting where changes have been made. You can even create an animated .gif of the differences in the two files in order to share these with others.
New Drafting Object Options
Two new drafting object options are now available. The “Curve Segments Amount” is a memory saving option that defines the number of segments between adjacent control points and applies to all of the curves inside of the drafting object. New “Don’t Show Hidden Lines” option allows users to show/hide all hidden lines of Drafting Objects, for more predictable behavior as invisible Hidden Lines will not interact with SNAPs
Improved Drafting Palette Option
Use ACIS references to save memory when creating a drafting object.
Improved Join Polyline
Join polyline sow supports the ability to join arcs, bulge polylines and 3D polylines with fillets.
EASIER RENDERING AND VISUALIZATION
Upgraded LightWorks Rendering Engine
The powerful LightWorks® photorealistic and artistic rendering engine has been updated to version 8.3. Some of the enhancements include new styles and shader, as well as HTML documentation.
NEW Material Editor
New Material Editor has streamlined material location, selection, application, and editing. Its ease of use applies to luminance, environments, and render styles, since it’s completely integrated into one common universal editor for LightWorks®.
Upgraded Redsdk Rendering Engine
The Redsdk engine from Redway 3D, which takes advantage of GPU-based graphics cards for faster design navigation, has been upgraded to new version 3. Now rendering can be isolated to selected objects in a drawing, instead of all objects in Model Space, saving time. Specifically, if at the time of switching to the RedSDK Draft or Hidden Line render mode, there are selected items in the drawing, then the rendering will be applied only to those selected objects. Redsdk is also now the default draw mode instead of OpenGL.
NEW GPU-Accelerated Drawing Performance in Quality Render Mode
The updated Redsdk engine is now supported in Quality Render mode, as well as Wireframe, Hidden Line, and Draft Render modes. Speed drawing performance up to 60 times faster! Background rendering has also been implemented.
NEW Hatch Pattern Creator
Now included with TurboCAD Pro, this tool provides an easy and fast way of creating repeating patterns to be used as Brush Patterns in your designs. Create custom hatch patterns by symbol and by sample. Using the tool you can also select existing patterns, adding several together, accumulating patterns and creating more complex designs. As you create new patterns, save them to the Brush Style Table and they will be available for repeated use.
IMPROVED DWG/DXF Filters
Updated filers offer a range of continued enhancements for working with the latest AutoCAD® and AutoCAD LT 2010 / 2011 / 2012 files.
NEW/ IMPROVED DGN (MicroStation) Filter
The DGN file filter for working with MicroStation has been completely re-written to open and save DGN files through v8.
NEW 3D Print Option
New print option allows you to output your 3D solid model directly to the Axon software used with 3D System’s Bits From Bites 3D printers, including the 3D Touch and RapMan 3D printers sold separately here on cadandgraphics.com.
