I asked this question on the Turbocad PC forum but was directed here. This is the original question with one answer.
Im trying to help a friend CAD a couple of parts that will be CNC milled out of 3mm carbon fiber. We are doing this at my friends work and I have some CAD experience (he has none) but never in turbocad.
Im trying to do a simple Add or Subtract from a 2D circle or square. Much like the Pathfinder tool in Illustrator.
(Not my image)
I manage to do it with a 3D object but I really rather not involve the 3:d axis to keep it simple.
I also manage to do it sometimes with the tool "Subtract surface" but I rather not have a surface, I just want the outlines.
Any help Is highly appreciated
Using TurboCad Pro 7 on a Mac.
I believe you are looking for the 2D Boolean tools found in any version of TurboCAD.
So, Im basicly looking for the 2D Boolean tools. But I have been looking and I belive that they dont exist in the same way that they do in the PC version.
I have manage to use the "Add Surface" och "Subtract Surface" but it only seems to work with squares and rectangles. Cant seem to get it to work with circles.
I would also not like to us any "surfaces". I rather have a simple, clean, wireframe blueprint. When I tested exporting the plans in dxf the plan was not just the outline but a dark surface that I dont want. But I guess thats a later problem.
So, my question still remains. =) How do I do simple 2D add and subtract of all shapes. =)
Thanx in advance.
