IMSI Design Announces TurboCAD® Mac v12

NOVATO, Calif., April 3, 2020 – IMSI Design, the developer of the #1 retail CAD program in the world, TurboCAD, today announced the release of new versions for all of its TurboCAD Mac titles. 

“The Version 12 release continues our commitment to providing the best value in CAD for the Mac platform,” said Bob Mayer, President of IMSI Design.  “In addition to the broad scope of enhancements, we’ve updated the ACIS® solid modeling kernel and implemented a new licensing scheme which allows us to now offer annual subscription versions in our products,” added Mayer. 

New and improved features in the new V12 products include:



Repeat Last Command - Quickly recall your last commands from a handy menu.

Save Layers with Views – Layer sets can now be saved with Views and restored at a later time to more easily iterateon your overall design layout.

Weight and Volume Tables – Quickly analyze the parameters of your Solid Models.  Tracking the weight of materials is a key control parameter in design and v12 introduces a new Bill of Material (BOM) attribute specific for creating a summed weight table.



Best Fit Line and Circle – A great tool for sketching over an image. This new tool will best fit a line or circle from a sample collection of points.  

Drafting Normals – Create construction lines normal from curve, to another curve or from a surface.

Select Similar – Efficiently edit your designs by selecting similar objects based on shape, color, types, and layers.



Grouped Centerlines & Paths: Use multiple curves as part of paths or guides for skin surfaces.

Mesh Booleans – Three Boolean operations - union, subtract, and intersect, allow a designer to work with facet based files such as STL, OBJ, 3DS, or SKP (SketchUp). Extremely useful for editing files you are preparing to send to a 3D printer!

Mesh Splitting – Split a 3Dmesh into two bodies usinga cutting plane.  A great feature for working with facetted data and for creating more complex models, as well as examining your designs.

Show/Hide Face Hide a face within a part, thereby providing visibility and selections into the internal representations of complex models.  

Wrapping - Imprint, engrave, or emboss text or a planar surface onto a solid.  Perfect for helping you place text, company logos, or complex 2D patterns onto 3D surfaces.



New Photorender Spotlight - Creates a soft shadow directly under a group of rendered objects.  Perfect for enhancing interior design renders. 



Updated DWG/DXF Support – Improved support through the AutoCAD® 2020 release.

New Import Filters - 2D PDF and Collada (.DAE)

Updated SketchUp Support - Now updated to support SKP 2020 files.

And much, much more…
