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.
BOM FRACTION MEASUREMENTS
The Bill of Material Create BOM feature has a new option to support fraction measurements. To use this feature, select the Attributes and BOM dialog box from the Tools menu. Select your objects and associated a data set such as CutList properties. Apply to selected. Now select the Create BOM option to create a table. In the BOM Settings dialog box, select the Decimals pull down option. And then Select Fractions to display measurements as factions of feet and inches.
PHOTO RENDER TOOL PALETTE
The Photo Render tool palette provides access to many of the tools used to create photo rendered images. The tool palette is access from the Tools menu bar “Photo Render” option.
|• Create Camera||Creates a camera from eye point, reference point, and field of view. Cameras are saved with file and used with the Render Camera tool.|
|• Render Camera||Renders a selected camera to the window.|
|• Render Window||Renders the current window and view orientation.|
|• Render To File||Renders current view orientation to a file with new width/height.|
|• Display Last Render||Displays the last rendered window to drawing window.|
|• Render Settings||Dialog box with settings for HDRI, background, materials, and other settings.|
The Create Camera tool creates a camera object from eye point, reference point, and field of view. Cameras are useful for saving view orientations that can be recalled or used with the Render Camera tool. To create a camera:
1.Select the Create Camera tool from the photo render tool palette
2.Specify the eye point, defined as the camera location
3.Specify the reference point, which specifies where the camera is looking
4.The camera is created
Camera objects have two parameters that can be modified from the data entry window.
1. Field of View (size of viewing area)
2.Focal length (length of camera and controls perspective distance)
The Render Camera tool creates a photo rendered image from a selected camera.
Camera properties supported when using this command include:
Start Point representing the camera eye point
End point representing the camera reference point
Field of View defines the scope of the view
Cameras are always rendered with perspective enabled. The rendered image is drawn into the drawing window.
The Render Window tool renders using the current view orientation. The results are displayed into the drawing window.
RENDER TO FILE
The Render Window tool renders using the current view orientation. The results are displayed into the drawing window.
DISPLAY LAST IMAGE
The Display Last Image redraws to the window the last photo rendered image.
PHOTO REALISTIC RENDER SETTINGS
The Render Settings dialog provides access to the following photo render settings and parameters.
• General Settings
• Sun & Sky
• Post Effects
The High-Definition Range Image (HDRI) tab provides access to the following settings and parameters:
|HDR Images||Drop drown containing example HDRI images|
|From File||Select a HDRI from file system|
|Rotate Z||Rotate the HDR from 0 to 360|
|Gain||Increase or decrease the light intensity|
|Gamma||Increase or decrease the contrast of the HDR image|
A post processor is a tool that allows you to apply various image-based effects to a rendered image after it has been completed. These effects can include things like tone mapping, denoising, color aberration, vignette, and gamma correction. Post processors can be very useful for improving the final appearance of a rendered image and can help to add a more polished and professional look to your work.
Post processors are accessed under the Post Effects tab in the render settings dialog box. The Post Effects tab is only available in SharkCAD, SharkCAD Pro, ViaCAD Pro, and TurboCAD Mac Pro.
The laser light adds a direct light source that emits a focused beam of light. Laser Lights are defined by a start point, end point, radius, and gain. The start point defined the laser start while the end point defines the direction of the light. The radius value defines the cylinder region of light. The gain defines the strength of the light.
The paraboloid primitive provides a means to create a quadric surface from one-, two-, or three-point definitions. Use a paraboloid to create a reflectors/radars, automobile headlights, solar furnaces, antennas, and aerodynamic tips. The Paraboloid primitive is located in the solid primitives tool palette, last tool item. The one-point paraboloid has a base center, and three radius values. The two-point paraboloid has a base center, end. The three point has two points defining the base diagonal, and one point defining the height. Each method provides a data entry window interface to change the associated radius values.
