Product Description

TurboCAD is a feature-rich solution perfect for CAD users involved in documenting the design workflow.

How do you position yourself against your competitors?

We see TurboCAD Pro Platinum as a broad-spectrum CAD title which is equally appealing to professional AEC CAD users, as well as to professionals in the Mechanical CAD design space.  Accordingly, our primary competitor is AutoCAD and we position our selves against them by offering more functionality at a less expensive price, AND doing this with a UI that is can be set up to be very AutoCAD-like – Command Line, Intelligent Cursor, similar menu structure, and of course complete DWG, DXF and DWF file compatibility.

What do you like best?

this program is awesome for interior designers but the rendering is not the best. it helps with much of the math and scale of the room that you need but it really all depends on your skill with the program. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

like i said the rendering is not the best you can post your work over to 3Ds Max but it will still take a lot of work if you are looking for a good render. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

yes but it really depends on what they are going to use it for. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
