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?

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.

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.
