Quality[edit]

I'm an experienced CAD user, and over the years I've received copies of TurboCAD for DOS and Windows. The software is complete crap... just what you'd expect of something that comes bundled free with a cheap mouse. I's venture a guess that the reason "the success of the direct mailings had peaked" was because they had broadcast their crummy s/w far & wide enough for any potential user to know better than to use it, much less buy it. This Wiki page should make note of the relative quality of TCAD. Dlchambers (talk) 14:59, 23 May 2008 (UTC)

I must disagree. I've used many versions of TurboCAD over the years, currently 15 Pro. It is very capable software. Especially for the cost. I have tried some other more expensive Cad software, and like the interface more. The only free version of TurboCAD I've used is TurboCAD3d ver.1 wich was less than user friendly, but very outdated when I got with there FloorPlan3D ver.3 software. For note: I'm not a cad designer. I've mainly had the use of the software because of others, who are in my family. I've also used some other 3d graphics software such as DAZ Studio, Bryce, Poser, ect. And my father is at this moment using TurboCAD to program for a CNC mill. Just check for the Quality yourself --Darkwings1123 (talk) 07:06, 28 January 2009 (UTC)


In my opinion, anyone who would make the complaint that TurboCAD is cheap, and or terrible CAD software, has never used it, since it's very earliest days, when it was acknowledged that it had very limited support at the time. I also remember what AutoCAD looked like under DOS, and it was nothing to what we have now, especially in TurboCAD.

I have been using TurboCAD since version 3, as a 2D CAD package, and it sold me over AutoCAD LT for ease of use. I use TurboCAD Pro, version 18, now, and its interface is much easier to use that AutoCAD, because of having to manually type in a lot of info into AutoCAD, to this day, in order to get it to do what you want it to do. By setting up the snaps, and the grid, in TurboCAD, one almost never has to manually key in a dimension, or a change. It's really that simple, by just using the mouse, and a few clicks to do it.Craxd (talk) 13:51, 12 June 2012 (UTC)

Perhaps a focus on the Mac version releases or in general just a release table charting the Mac and Win version differencesMredit15 (talk) 01:58, 30 July 2014 (UTC)
