Improved Quick Pull
The popular Quick Pull tool now offers multiple selection, so you can manipulate several co-planar faces simultaneously. You can also thicken ACIS surfaces with the Quick Pull tool, and dynamically switch between Quick Pull and Imprint modes.
New Wire Wrapping
Wrap a wire around a 3D solid for use as an extrusion or sweep path.
Create Surface from Faces
When using the ACIS tool ‘Create Surface from Faces’ users can now retain the source object.
Create Surface from Solid
When using the ‘Create Surface from Solids’ tool, users can now retain the source object.
Rendering & Visualization
TurboCAD 2015 now offers an updated Redsdk 220.127.116.11 Engine, and also now includes a New Displacement Shader in the RedSDK materials. In addition to GPU-drawing performance, the latest Redsdk engine in TurboCD 2015 provides powerful photorealistic and artistic rendering, replacing the LightWorks engine for quick and easy presentations of your designs.
While images previously rendered in LightWorks can be rendered with the Redsdk engine, some differences and substitutions may apply. For existing users that prefer to continue to use the LightWorks engine, or new users looking to expand their photorealistic rendering options, the LightWorks engine is now available as a plug-in. Look for a 50% off discount offer on this plug-in in the cart when you purchase TurboCAD 2015.
Improved DWG/DXF Read/Write Filters
TurboCAD now uses the latest Teigha engine for the conversion of .dwg and .dxf files to/from different versions. Dynamic blocks are imported as simple blocks.
New SketchUp SKP 2015 Support
Import/export of SketchUp 2015 files is now supported.
New Visual Effects for Exported Images
For any image that has been added to a TurboCAD drawing, you can now control the brightness, contrast, saturation, and transparency.
Advanced Architectural Design & Simple BIM
TurboCAD Pro Platinum speeds design with an 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.
TurboCAD Pro Platinum also lets you create custom properties to objects, property sets, and entry marks to display the data next to specific objects in a drawing. New version 21 now allows users to extract that custom data as well as geometry from walls, doors, windows, slabs, and roofs, and export to IFC format, the industry standard for BIM information.

Advanced Mechanical Design Tools
TurboCAD Pro Platinum offers advanced tools for 3D solid and surface modeling. 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. A new ACIS® R24 3D solid modeling engine in TurboCAD Pro Platinum 21 offers better modeling, improvements to ACIS file filters, and enhancements to several features based on this engine. Read more about Platinum Design Tools
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. Read more about Platinum Modification Tools
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. Read more about the Platinum Part Tree
Smooth Surface Mesh 3D Modeling Tools
TurboCAD Pro Platinum allows you to use existing 3D modeling tools to create a smooth surface mesh (smesh). Users can control the resolution, smoothness and more. This form of 3D object creation allows for easier and more rapid creation of organic shapes. Read more about Smesh Tools
Associative Arrays / Pattern Tools
TurboCAD Pro Platinum patterns are arrays objects copied in specific arrangements and controlled parametrically. Create patterns from a variety of entities and apply to spheres and cylinders, radial patterns, 3D arrays, along a curve, and on polyline for shapes that couldn’t easily be drawn. Read more about Platinum Pattern Tools
Platinum Parametric Constraints
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. Read more about Platinum Constraints
Create more realistic and varied materials for rendering. Use UV mapping to project a 2D image onto a 3D object where “U” and “V” are the names of the axes of plane. It’s a powerful tool perfect for use in photorealistic rendering. Read more about UV Mapping
