The Easiest Way to Learn 3D Computer-Aided Design with TurboCAD

Learning the Basics

All you’ll ever need to know about the TurboCAD tools used to construct ANY 3-dimensional design.  Tools discussed and demonstrated during this session include :

User Interface | Customizing your TurboCAD desktop specifically for 3D design.

Palettes and Frequently Used Tools | Includes the Selection Info Palette, the Design Director and the Drafting Palette and Drafting Objects Palette.

3D Design Environment |  Program & Drawing Settings for 3D workspace, Standard & Isometric Views, The Coordinate system, Workplanes and Render Modes.

3D Object Handling | Learning how to select, modify and manipulate objects in 3D workspace.

Creating & Extruding Profiles | Extruding closed and open profiles to create 3D objects.  Extruding compound profiles.

Parametric Updates |  Using the Selection Info Palette to view and modify the dimensional properties of objects.

The 3D Model | Using 3D Objects, Boolean Facet tools, 3D Modification & Assembly tools.

Solid Modeling | Using the Deformable, Sub-Divisional Modeling and Surface-to-Solid Conversion tools.

3D Scene | Using photo-realistic render modes to create unique camera angles and rendering.

Page Layout Wizard | Rapidly constructs 2D layouts in a paper space page layout of a 3D model.  Standard Orthographic and Isometric views can be produced as well sectional views.
