Key Features

Versatile 2D/3D CAD Solution

Give depth to a 2D object to create a 3D object or use Design CAD 3D Max’s design and drafting tools palette to create versatile designs.

Precision 3D Surface Modeling

Drafting Assistant will help you layout your design or import existing files for easy editing. With intuitive design tools, novice designers can quickly create precision 3D surface designs.

3D Printer Support with STL Support

The 3D print tool allows you to pass a TurboCAD STL file to 3D printer control software and print/manufacture 3D models of your project.

Real-Time OpenGL Rendering

The Open GL rendering engine provides live shaded views which you can rotate, pan or draw in shaded mode. Perform solid operations such as subtract or copy and get their results in shaded view.

Animation & Walkthroughs

View the animation of your 3D model by using the walkthrough feature and examine it to figure out any required modifications.

Drawing Compare

Drawing Compare will perform a visual comparison of two BMP images. Most effective when working collaboratively on a project.

New Features

Sketch Up 2020 Support

DesignCAD now supports SketchUp 2020.

PDF Underlay Import

PDF compatibility has been further expanded to now include the use of vector PDFs as a tracing layer. 2D PDFs of things like blueprints or maps can now be easily converted into a CAD file. 

Best Fit Circle and Line

The new Best Fit Circle and Line tools allow the user to draw a circle which is best-fitted through 3 or more defined points, or a line through 2 or more points. Points can be extracted from a specified location or a specific object.

Line Distance Tool

A new tool now allows the user to easily calculate the distance between any two lines. Previously the distance between two parallel lines was calculated. In the menu go to Dimension->info->line Distance to use this tool. Set a point on each of the two lines to measure the shortest distance.

2D Adobe Illustrator with an option to import as Underlay

DesignCAD 2020 now supports the import of Adobe Illustrator® (AI) files.  Illustrator files can be directly imported or used as an underlay.
