  • This training program is designed around a self-paced instructional basis with each Session providing detailed, highly illustrated step-by-step instructions to complete each Task.   At the beginning of each Session, a Worksheet is provided which gives an overview of the commands used in the Session.  A printable drawing and a TurboCAD drawing sample is provided for each session.
  • The Sessions provide a complete start-to-finish video animation of each Task, allowing the user to understand each topic clearly.
  • A comprehensive guide to frequently used 2D and 3D tools is supplied, complete with worked examples.


In Session 1-2D you will learn how to draw a small part using various Draw, Modify and Zoom tools. Dimensions will also be inserted onto the drawing and a drawing layout will be created suitable for printing the drawing.  In this Session, you will also learn about :

  • Sketch tools : Rectangle, Lines & Parallel Lines, Circles
  • Modify tools : Fillet & Chamfer, Meet 2 Lines, Line Length, Trim
  • Inserting Center Point Marks
  • Changing Object Properties
  • Snap Modes
  • Dimensions
  • Drawing layout/print
  • Block Attributes

Sample

In Session 2-2D you will learn about the subject of conceptual sketching and how an image can be inserted into the drawing over which a floor plan can be sketched. In this Session, you will also learn about :

  • The Wall, Arc Wall, Door and Window tool will be used.
  • Walls, doors and windows will be modified.
  • Standard (Front, Top, Side) and Isometric views.

Sample

In Session 3-3D you will learn about creating a solid model from the sketch produced earlier.  In this Session, you will also learn about :

  • Creating a Block of a sketch.
  • Using Isometric Views and Workplanes.
  • Using the Join Polyline tool to create a profile.
  • Extruding a profile.
  • Moving objects onto the Workplane.
  • Using Boolean Facet tools such as 3D Add and 3D Subtract.
  • Applying material properties to a solid object.
  • Creating a drawing layout.

Sample

In Session 4-3D you will learn about designing a modular chair by creating, manipulating and extruding profiles. In this Session, you will also learn about :

  • Creating and modifying a sketch profile suitable for extrusion.
  • Rotating 2D objects in a 3-dimensional plane.
  • Duplicating 3D objects using the Mirror Copy tool.
  • Adding and subtracting 3D objects
  • Modifying the profile of a solid to be used as a sweep path.
