Pros: This software is relatively intuitive--even for someone who has never used any type of CAD software before. However, because of the many different features of this software, it can take quite a while to master all of the things you might want to do with this application. Also, this is a very powerful software application and the 3D tools available put it on near par with much more expensive professional-grade CAD systems.

Cons: There are several add-ins for this software (such as those that can create virtual walk-throughs of your designs), which I found a bit finicky. Also, some of the available help is not quite detailed enough to learn new features as easily as I would like. Also, some of the 3D tools don't quite work as I would want them to work, and sometimes saving a project prevents you from modifying some of the objects you've made. However, if you save copiese frequently, and get familiar with the order of events you need to use, you can master this software.

Overall: I have used TurboCAD to design architectural plans and even design a custom electric guitar body, as well as a few graphic design elements I've used for decoration.

Pros: I think the way to treat customers and how to help them is great, the services offered by TurboCad Professional are so wide and varied that they cover everything, any customer will be satisfied when working with TurboCAD Professional and I do not doubt it, the services offered are very good and focus on helping the client in all possible ways, it is worth choosing TurboCAD Professional and I do not regret having done it, nothing like working with a company that cares about the concerns and well-being of the client as TurboCAD Professional does ...

Cons: Honestly leaves you very pleased and I leave without any complaint or criticism. I only have good comments about it since I'm leaving with a great image of this company, I will really go back to work with it, 100% worth it. Do not doubt this and above all do not think about it, it is one of the best in its scope. I leave with a smile on my face, since the services of TurboCAD Professional left me satisfied and even beyond that, it seems to me that it is a company that knows what its customers want and it proves it !! VERY RECOMMENDED!

Pros: All is possible to do

Cons: Difficult to use before you learn how to do this

Pros: TurboCAD software is being used by wide range of people for designing 2D and 3D models. Another worth mentioning feature of this software is its ability to publish in PDF format. This is full CAD software product.

Cons: When we start using TurboCAD professional software, its layout seems to be difficult before learning. Sometimes the programs get clear due to so many different icons creating difficulty in learning. Sometimes booting issues also occurs and the system gets slow with less processing speed.

We have been using TurboCAD at our company since 2016.

Pros: A lot of things we like about this program - The tutorials are very helpful. The green design eco friendly details are helpful in our state. The ability to publish in PDF format has also proven valuable.

Cons: The only suggestion we have is that the program come with more in depth paper print directions. (some employees prefer hard copy to doing the tutorials.)

Overall: Mainly, the ability to create quick drawings of small engineered projects for customers and vendors.

Comments: We use Turbocad for over a decade in combination with TurbocadCAM and Turbocad Animationlab. To make presentations of productconcepts, Mechanically develop prototypes and feed our CNC machines to produce prototypes. Turbocad provides perfectly in our needs. We also worked with Solidworks and Autocad for a trial period but this did not work out for us as these programms were too limited for us. Too meet our needs with these programms we need to buy very expensive plugins that Turbocad either already has integrated, or delivers at a very reasonable price. We are now certain to stay with Turbocad for the near future as its versatile capabillities fills our needs perfectly.

TurboCAD is good for the hobbyist too.

Pros: Ease of use. It is full CAD software and the price is extremely competitive

Cons: I'm a novice and so some of the instructions that might be intuitive to a seasoned designer took me some time to figure out

Overall: I'm a hobby woodworker. I need to design my projects before I begin to build them. TurboCAD has been a great asset for me. I used the tutorials to get me started. In a fairly short time I was able to do the basics and begin my own drawings.

Recommendations to other buyers: If you need design software this is a great product

Pros: TurboCAD is very affortable. It has some great features that would work with designing homes and perhaps small commercial projects.

Cons: I wouldn't want to attempt a complex architecture project with TurboCAD. I am sure it has been done, and I am not an expert, but I wouldn't advise it.
