I found this software (TurboCAD Deluxe v7) buggy under Mountain Lion OS. Undo would invariably insert duplicates of my walls, which I would have to delete time after time. AutoCAD files are hit and miss on import, sometimes scattered all over the drawing after importing. Doors and windows do not propagate when using the 2D to 3D tools, even in the tutorial model. Several of the features do not work as instructed in the manual.

Exported 3D drawings import fairly well into Lightwave for rendering, but TurboCAD's library textures do not export with the drawing, and cannot be accessed outside of TurboCAD.

That being said, I paid $130 when v.7 first came out, and I might have been happier if I had paid $50 less. Furthermore, I have found enough workarounds, though it pains me to keep deleting extra walls, that I might have even upgraded to TurboCAD Pro if they didn't want to charge $200 for the privilege. (Even today with the big sale.) I do hate it when companies ignore early adapters. All in all, I would warn not to take this software too seriously. It is cheap by comparison to really good software, but it is more for hobbyist than serious draftspersons.

Thank you for your review. It helped me make a decision to not purchase. I just tested v7 on Mac Pro Mountain Lion and CMD Z (undo) still doesn't undo the last action. Very odd as this would be one of my used commands in every design software I use!

It's a shame - I was very keen to buy at the special price..

Hi,

just bought the Pro version. Installation runs fine and TurboCAD tells me that I've entered a valid serial number. However, when I click on the Activation button, Safari opens and tries to load a page from IMSI, but fails. No chance to retrieve the activation code. How can this be fixed?

Kind regards,
Claus

HI, Macvdr. Try making Firefox your default browser temporarily, then activating. I think that is what I wound up doing.

Hi Christopher,

thank you for your reply. I managed to get an activation code from the website. Unfortunately, I now have another problem. Every time I want to enter the activation code into the license manager (Snaks), it crashes! So, currently, I'm not able to activate my purchased copy of TurboCAD Pro :-( (I also contacted the support, but didn't receive an answer yet)

Hello Macvdr,
as I have the same problem activating TurboCAD Pro (snaks...) I would be glad if you could pass the information how you succeeded

Kind regards
Wolf

Hi Wolf,

I made the mistake that I copied everything from the mail into the serial number field (serial number AND activation code!!!). The moment I recognized this, I could easily fix the issue. :-) I hope this helps you.

Hello Claus,

yes, that did the trick!
Thanks a lot, you saved my day!

I bought this application about 3 weeks ago and being this is my first 3D CAD application that I've bought, so far I must say its been a good experience, Now I know this is no Auto CAD but for someone like myself thats new to 3D CAD, its been perfect. My one objection is to the GUI of the application, it has absolutely not a bit of appeal its very archaic and a bit clunky. The developer could have put a little more effort into it. As far as the application goes it is a great value. So far its been fairly easy to learn by oneself and the one drawback to this is that the tutorials are for the first version and so they don't quite go with this version but its not to bad to figure out. I don't think its wise of the developer to ignore these little things that wouldn't be to hard for a developer like IMSI to just take care off, since it takes away from the user's experience when using TurboCAD Mac 3D that otherwise would be a home run, as it turns out its a triple.
