TurboCAD® Mac Deluxe2D/3D puts you in the driver’s seat of exceptional design. Whether you are a builder, manufacturer, maker, or student, you will be able to harness the power of 2D drafting and 3D modeling to design just about anything you can imagine.
Shift into high gear with TurboCAD Mac Deluxe 2D/3D
TurboCAD Mac Deluxe 2D/3D is a complete 2D/3D CAD solution that is extremely powerful, yet easy to use. Design with powerful 2D/3D drafting and ACIS® modeling tools. Quickly layout floor plans, diagrams, and illustrations. Our simple interface will speed up your workflow so that you can get more done in less time.
Compatibility and file sharing
Whether you’re a team of one or many, you’ll have the interoperability needed to collaborate. We’ve ensured that TurboCAD is compatible with over a dozen popular CAD and Graphics formats. You will be able to deliver files that can be opened and edited by users of AutoCAD® andother popular design software. Your team will be running like a well-oiled machine.
We will help you learn
While TurboCAD Mac is feature rich, we work hard at making it easy by including intuitive tools like our LogiCursor™ that makes CAD a snap by suggesting your next move as you draw.
Your purchase also includes access to our training tutorials, so you will not have to learn through trial and error. We are experts at creating CAD software and our tutorials will help you to become an expert user quickly.

Intuitive Design and Editing Utilities
Drawing precisely is easy with TurboCAD Mac! We have designed it to be user friendly and intuitive to work with.
The LogiCursor™ anticipates your next action and guides your cursor to potential point selections in the drawing.
The Gripper adds drag and drop capabilities to make editing designs easy breezy.
Customizable Grids add another level of ease by providing precision drag and drop in rectangular, polar (circular), and isometric layouts.
3D Printing Tools
TurboCAD Mac Deluxe 2D/3D includes 3D printing tools to prepare and validate your designs to make them 3D printer ready.
3D Print Check
Checks for print viability, displaying warnings or errors to the user.
Surface Normals Check
Facet normals define the inside and outside areas of a part. If facet normals are pointing the wrong way, the 3D printer may have problems creating the part. This will check for problems and we have several commands that can help you fix it.
This will help you visually inspect modeling areas that may require structural support for 3D printing. Meshes, surfaces, and solids facets normals are compared to the work plane direction. Angles that are less or equal to 45 degrees are highlighted as red.
Wall Thickness Analysis
This tool provides a means to visually inspect modeling areas that may be too thin for 3D printing. Meshes, surfaces, and solids facets are examined using ray intersections.
This interface will help you to slice models given a direction and thickness. The dialog box allows for animation through the slices and single-stepping. Use to verify that a part has closed, non-overlapping sections, a requirement for 3D printing.
The Auto Position tool translates the model to the positive x, y coordinate system at z=0.
Manually adds geometry to support material as it is created by the 3D printer. Support structures controls, include Attach Radius, Midpoint Radius, Base Radius, Base Thickness, and Drag base and midpoints to modify structure location.
Show Printer Volume
Toggles the boundary of the default 3D Printer. The volume is defined within the Printer Definitions dialog box.
Sets key parameters of the 3D printer, including length, width, and height of the volume accessible by the printer. The parameters in the Printer Definitions dialog box are used for commands such as 3D Print Check and Auto Position.
Split Mesh:This tool allows you to divide a mesh into two portions based on a cutting plane. Split Mesh is an ideal tool for those working with faceted data along with 3D printing manufacturing processes.
Mesh Booleans:This advancement provides a means to add or remove material from a mesh body. Previous versions only allowed Boolean operations on ACIS®- based solids. Now with the introduction of mesh Booleans, you can add/remove material imported from STL, OBJ, 3DS, and SketchUp.
Drafting and Annotation:
Best Fit Line and Best Fit Circle:Great for tracing precise curves over rough sketches. This tool will “best fit” a line or circle from a sample collection of points.
Angular Tolerance Updates:The Angular Tolerance interface has been updated to dynamically provide input from the Inspector dialog box.
Show/Hide Face:The Show/Hide Face tool will hide faces within a part enabling access and visibility into the internal representations of complex models.
Save Layers with view:Now you have the ability to save layers associated with view orientations.
Repeat Previous Command:This “right click” feature will save you lots of time by maintaining a list of last-used drawing commands. Select an item in the list to quickly change the current tool.
Now you can work with file types from these other programs:• DWG/DXF 2020 Import/Export• PDF Import
• Adobe Illustrator Import
• SketchUp 2020 Import/Export
• Collada (DAE) Import/Export
