IMSI TurboCAD is a CAD tool used for drafting 2D and 3D designs. It may be used in educational, home, and professional environments. The software is also available for OS X users as TurboCAD Mac.

TurboCAD provides tools to create both 2D and 3D drawings. It also includes three-dimensional modeling tools for photorealistic rendering, adding lighting effects, changing camera views, and performing other 3D operations. The software provides intelligent dimensioning features that automatically fit and scale shapes to meet design needs. For example, self-healing walls automatically join and intersect when creating 2D and 3D designs. TurboCAD also offers over 200 interactive tutorials for beginner and intermediate designers.

TurboCAD supports many import formats, including AutoCAD .DWG and .DXF, 3D Studio .3DS, Google SketchUp .SKP, .IGES, and .STEP files. The software can export drawings to raster image formats, popular CAD file types, .PDF files, and several other formats. Drawings can also be saved to an HTML Web page that can be published on the Web. Users should note that the supported file types vary slightly between Mac and Windows versions.

TurboCAD is an application that enables users to create 2D and 3D drawings in academic, home, and professional environments. The varying versions give users differing capabilities at different prices. The Deluxe version of IMSI TurboCAD may not be as sophisticated as Autodesk AutoCAD, but still provides a competent CAD program for a fraction of the price. The Pro and Pro Platinum versions are more suited to professional use and come at much higher price but also provide much more functionality.
