A comprehensive, multi-media educational program for the 3D TurboCAD® Pro-Platinum user.
This training guide teaches 3D CAD skills through easy to use, step-by-step sessions. It’s designed for anyone wishing to learn TurboCAD in a self-paced, structured session format, but is also appropriate for students learning CAD for the first time in a classroom setting, whether at school, college, university or any educational institution.
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.
After learning the basic 3D tools, now proceed to 10 self-paced Worksessions which contain all the tasks learned in the TurboCAD 3D tools section. Each contains a video animation showing each task from start-to-completion.
