NOVATO, CA--(Marketwired - September 14, 2016) - IMSI®/Design, developer of the #1 best-selling CAD in retail, announced today the release of TurboCAD LTE Pro V9, the company's full-featured CAD application that works like AutoCAD LT.
"TurboCAD LTE Pro is a great, value CAD alternative to users familiar with AutoCAD products, particularly now that Autodesk has stopped offering permanent license versions of AutoCAD and is only selling products via subscription. TurboCAD LTE Pro's familiar user interface, command line, menu structure, and best-of-breed DWG compatibility make it a great companion to or replacement of AutoCAD seats," stated Bob Mayer, President of IMSI/Design.
TurboCAD LTE Pro v9 new and improved features include:
New Slots Tools including Slot, Circular Slot, and Circular Slot By Center and Radius.
New Point Cloud Support - TurboCAD LTE Pro now offers tools to interpret a set of data points in X, Y, and Z coordinates, used to represent the external surface of an object. New Point Cloud Import/Export uses .PCD and .XYZ formats to transfer data. New Point Cloud Triangulation can extract a surface from a point cloud data set, and New Subset Point Cloud selects a subset of an existing point cloud to create a separate entity.
New Convert Roof Slabs - Take a classic TurboCAD roof, and convert it to a set of roof slabs. This makes it more convenient to create and edit custom roofs (clipped gable roof, dormer, etc...).
New Trim Roof Slab by Plane - Allows users to trim a Roof Slab by the plane of other roof slabs, standard roofs, or walls.
New/Improved IFC Object Support - The IFC file filter, used for building information management (BIM), now supports the Import and Export of Beam and Column object types.
Improved House Wizard for quickly laying out house plans now allows you to name each room while in the tool.
Additional Enhancements include that ability to multi-landing stairs from a 2D polyline. Also, the Edit Roof Slab Tool now includes an input field.
New Highlighting of 3D objects and parts of 3D objects while using certain tools in Redsdk mode.
Improved Conceptual Selector - Users can now relocate the reference point and the rotation bars using the CTRL key. Also, scale handles are now available on the boundary boxes as in classic mode.
New Spaces - Manage all your spaces through the design director including model space, and all paper spaces so you can handle spaces more efficiently than the tab interface allows.
New ISO Circle/Grid - New tool allows you to easily construct isometric circles.
New PRC 3D PDF Support - In addition to existing file export support of U3D PDF, TurboCAD now exports 3D content to PRC (Product Representation Compact) 3D PDF. TurboCAD 3D PDF export also now includes support of Redsdk materials.
Improved AutoCAD® (DWG/DXF) - TurboCAD now uses the latest Teigha engine for the conversion of .DWG and .DXF files to and from TurboCAD for improved interoperability with other CAD applications.
