TurboCAD Canada training and Support

Welcome to TurboCAD Canada. With this website we would like to offer you TurboCAD products at a great prices. Please see our Online Shop to buy and download TurboCAD products. TurboCAD Canada also offers various support packages to help you  get the most out of your TurboCAD Software. TurboCAD uses a web conferencing tool to perform live demonstrations in real time. All you need is an Internet Connection and a Skype account.

Supported OS:
Windows 7, Windows 7 64-bit, Windows 7 32-bit, Windows 8 32-bit, Windows 8 64-bit, Windows 8, Windows 10

Open, insert, or embed up to 35 file formats and export up to 28, including .DWG, .DXF, .SKP (Google™ SketchUp™), .3DM (Rhinoceros®), .3DS (Autodesk® 3ds Max®), IGES, STEP, .OBJ, COLLADA (.DAE – write only); vector formats including .EPS and .SVG; raster formats including .BMP, .GIF, .JPG, .PNG, .TIF, and more.

TurboCAD Pro allows you to design the way you want: begin in 2D, in 3D, or start your project in another application and bring it into TurboCAD Pro for completion. Architectural designs profit from tools like the self-healing Walls, while mechanical designs benefit from tools like powerful 2D parametric Constraints.

Moving to the US]edit[

TurboCAD was first sold in the United States by Milan Systems of America in late 1986, marketed as a stand-alone title for $99 and a bundle with the IMSI (International Microcomputer Software, Inc]3[) mouse for $149. Both companies shared distribution responsibilities for the bundle.

In 1990, IMSI released its self-developed version of TurboCAD, version 2 for DOS. IMSI had licensed the source code from the original developers, Pink Software, and programmer Kurt Diesch fixed bugs and added output support, as well as increased functionality to compete with other CAD programs under $500 - Generic CADD, Drafix and Design CAD 2D. Later Diesch ported code from the original Turbo Pascal to the later object oriented version that would eventually morph into Borland Delphi. This resulted in a major improvement to the DOS user interface.

In the United States, TurboCAD was initially marketed through high-tech, direct sales publications such as Computer Shopper and InfoWorld magazines. Computer Shopper proved to be the consistently profitable publication in which to advertise and monthly full-page ads were run in this publication for the first two and a half years from TurboCAD’s introduction in the U.S. Computer Shopper ads not only established a strong and loyal end user base, but they also helped establish a loyal distribution network.

Improved Dimension Text
Dimension Text can be set to Non-rotatable. With this property selected, dimension text will always face the user no matter the orientation of the drawing.

Sorted Layers in Drop Down Lists
The Layers in the drop down and simple lists are now sorted as per the Design Director. If you change the control view order in Design Director the same ordering will be in all other Layer controls.

Improved Trim Tools
New ability to trim hatched or closed objects and maintain the hatch or closure.

New Dimension Units Format ‘By Drawing’
Users can now globally define dimension units at the drawing level.

Первый плагин — Animation Lab для TurboCAD был разработан компанией СофтДев в 1999 году, он основан на технологии VBA. В настоящее время выпущена третья версия Animation Lab. С тех пор в партнерстве с СофтДев были разработаны инструмент Beam Analysis (2001) и плагин 2 ½D CAM (2002). Сторонние разработчики создали следующие плагины: в 2003 году Джерри Симингтон разработал плагин для моделирования поверхностей; в 2004 году Cadalog Inс. разработала плагин, содержащий машиностроительные символы, который обращался к веб-сайту CADsymbols.com; генератор параметрической мебели (шкафы, столы, стулья) был создан Spinar Software в 2005 году.

С 2003 по 2005 годы в продукт TurboCAD Professional были внесены значительные улучшения. В версии 9.5 был добавлен движок Spatial’s Deformable Modeling, а в версию 10.5 включили D-Cubed 2D Constraint Manager. В 2005 году IMSI вернулась на рынок Macintosh с продуктами TurboCAD и TurboCAD 3D. Эти продукты лицензируются у CADSoft Solutions и продаются под торговой маркой IMSI.

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.

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. Read more about TurboCAD Pro Lighting & MaterialsRedsdk will substitute the materials and lighting of images previously rendered with Lightworks.

NEW ISO Circle/Grid

This new tool allows you to easily construct isometric circles.


IMPROVED Conceptual Selector

  • Drag reference point and rotation bars with CTRL
  • Scale handles on boundary boxed as in classic mode

New Highlighting (Redsdk Only)

UI enhancement which highlights 3D objects and parts of 3D objects while using certain tools in Redsdk mode including imprinting, 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


New PRC 3D PDF Support

TurboCAD now supports both .U3D and .PRC (Product Representation Compact) file export. This new filter option exports 3D content in PRC format.

Improved DWG and DXF File Support

TurboCAD now uses the latest Teigha engine for the conversion of .DWG and .DXF files to and from TurboCAD for improved interoperability with other CAD applications.
