TCMAC v11 New Features / Stopped Chamfer
« Last post by zattif on October 19, 2018, 03:54:26 AM »
Stopped Chamfers are a new solid modelling feature in V11. A Stopped Chamfer replaces an edge with a bevel, typically for decorative purpose. The bevel starts and ends by a user specified value.

Parameters used to define a Stopped Chamfer are;
•   Chamfer Length
•   Distance from Start
•   Distances from End

The transition rolls off using a smooth arc simulating the path of a router bit.

As with other features, the user can modify any of these parameters during the design process to explore alternative shapes quickly.

Available in Products: TurboCAD Pro
Edge features introduced in V11 provide a means to rapidly define parametric edges used in wood, marble, or granite designs.

Some predefined edge treatments include:
•   Cove
•   Rounds
•   Rounds with Beaded Offset
•   Full, Half, and Beaded Ogee
•   Waves

TCMAC v11 New Features / Simplify Curves
« Last post by zattif on October 19, 2018, 03:52:47 AM »
Available in Products: TurboCAD 2D, TurboCAD 2D/3D, TurboCAD Pro

Some design tasks prefer higher order curves such as arcs, circles, and/or ellipses over lines. For example, sharing data with a plasma or water jet cutting CNC system or extruding a profile into a solid and later adding edge treatments. V11 introduces the Simplify Curve tool to assist in this task.

Covert Lines or Polylines into:
•   Arcs
•   Circles
•   Ellipses
•   Splines

TCMAC v11 New Features / Skinning with Center Line Path
« Last post by zattif on October 19, 2018, 03:51:23 AM »
Available in Products: TurboCAD Pro
Skinning is the process of constructing a NURB surface between sections. Skins in TurboCAD can be open resulting in a NURB Surface or closed creating a Solid.

V11 introduces the ability to specify a path. The path defines the flow of the surface between the sections. Specifying a path means you may be able to define less sections which may produce a more overall smooth surface.

Restrictions
* Path must be one G2 smooth curve
* Path must be perpendicular at a section intersection

TCMAC v11 New Features / High Resolution Printing for Objects with Textures
« Last post by zattif on October 19, 2018, 03:50:02 AM »
Available in Products: TurboCAD Pro
Prints involving objects with textures now internally use Lightworks to generate the image for the printer, providing a high-resolution output.

Available in Products: TurboCAD Pro
Lightworks Photo Rendering now supports rendering texture images imported from OBJ, 3MF, SketchUp, and 3DS file formats.

These file types can simply be opened from Open dialogue.

TCMAC v11 New Features / SVG Import and Export

 Available in Products: TurboCAD 2D, TurboCAD 2D/3D, TurboCAD Pro

Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) is an XML-based vector image format for two-dimensional graphics with support for interactivity and animation. V11 now supports importing and exporting to this new format.

The new SVG Import/Export provides an alternative to using the Adobe Illustrator format for sharing vector based (scalable) graphics.

Note: For importing SVG files from Adobe Illustrator use a unit setting of mm (or inch) and a DPI setting of 72 to get the correct scale.
