Try clicking on WorkPlane -> Global to clean up the work plane, then you may need to rotate the objects in the drawing.

Problems / Alignment problem
« Last post by jawick on February 12, 2018, 01:32:07 PM »
I thought my 3D drawing was in alignment. It looked fine while I was drawing it but then I put in a dimension and it's out of alignment (see picture attached). The work plane also seems to be tweaked which you can see in the picture. How do I get things back in alignment again?
TIA

2D PDFs are saved through the Print menu. After you have set up your drawing for printing just select one of the PDF options from the Print menu box.

Thanks Mitch
On another note, it looks like I can export a 3D pdf file but not a 2D?

Hi and thanks for tip.

TC3 does not work on my new computer for some reason, that is why I bought the new program. My old computer has broken down unfortunately.

If you still have TC 3 installed you will need to convert them to V1 files, see this link:

If not, can you reinstall V3?

Sorry for the bad link, try it now.

Does anyone have version 3 Of TurboCAD for Mac?

Since I bought the newest version because of my 2011 Mac suffering a breakdown, I realize that most of my drawings can't be opened, imported or converted into this. I have tried version 4 and in this version the drawings seems to be opened, but I encounter error-messages anyway and leaving the drawings unopened.

Since they are drawn in TC3, IŽd love to open them again and export as dxf-dwg-files.

My files has the ending .tcm  .tc3  .tcA

I am really afraid I am going to loose hundreds of hours of work...


Help anyone?

A fill and a hatch are very different entities. A hatch is inside a single line polygon but a fill is associated with a smart polygon. If you use the fill tool to fill a single line polygon notice that a smart polygon is created to contain the fill so you now have two rectangles the original single line and the smart polygon. A smart polygon will not hatch.

A fill is always on top. To show the objects under the fill select the polygon and set "Show Fill" to No, then select everything inside the smart polygon, then select Edit -> Arrange -> Bring to front. Select the smart polygon and set "Show Fill" to Yes. The fill should now be in the background. If you continue to add more geometry it will also need to be selected and the "Bring To Front" will need to be applied.

Problems / Hatch Issue

How do I draw objects so that they appear inside a rectangle that has been filled via hatch. I tried bringing the objects forward but that didn't do it. I want a rectangle that has been filled with a particular color to not hide subsequent objects that I draw inside it.
Thanks
