3D Training Guide for TurboCAD
This browser based (HTML) and video training guide teaches common 3D CAD skills through easy to use, step-by-step sessions. It’s designed for anyone wishing to learn TurboCAD in a self-paced, structured session format, but is also appropriate for students learning CAD for the first time in a classroom setting, whether at school, college, university or any educational institution.
The Easiest Way to Learn 3D Computer-Aided Design with TurboCAD
All key 3D features in TurboCAD are presented in this learning system. Following basic introductory sessions are 15 learning sessions that introduce the following activities:
- Session 1 – program and drawing settings for 3D design, the 3D menu panels, selector 2D/3D properties, standard / isometric views, the world and user-coordinate system, workplanes, and 3D thickness
- Session 2 – mirror (3D objects), generic transform, multiple layout templates, fillet edges, and material properties
- Session 3 – 3D box, rotated box, sphere, hemisphere, cylinder, polygonal prism, fillet edges, parametric updates, workplane by facet, using the mirror tool in a 3D application, basic material properties, and paper space layout
- Session 4 – profile node edit, workplane by 3 points, simple extrude and quick pull, dimensioning on the workplane, and viewport layer control
- Session 5 – 2D add, 2D subtract, generic transform, 3D add, 3D subtract, generic transform, 3D selection properties, and toggle 2D/3D
- Session 6 – assembly by 3 points, assembly by edge & point, assembly by facets and tangents, assemble by axis, and shell solid
- Session 7 – solid objects : torus, sphere, revolve, assemble by 3 points, and slice by workplane
- Session 8 – imprint add and subtract, pressure load, extrusion draft angle, compound profile extrusion, extruding to a face, and flexible text
- Session 9 – revolve, workplane intersection, 3D array, the thread tool, and adjusting the faceter mode
- Session 10 – join polyline, assemble by 3 points, using the same profile to extrude bi-directionally, and updating object information using the selection info palette
- Session 11 – loft, branched and face2face lofting, edit current workplane, show/hide workplane intersections, and pressure load.
- Session 12 – section by closed polyline, facet editor, radial copy - 3D, place on workplane, offset, and create holes
- Session 13 – extrusion draft angle, compound profile sweep, twisted extrude, surface from solid, and assemble by edge and facet.
- Session 14 – using the Drafting Palette to do the following: selection by component / assembly, inserting views into the drawing, the view scale and hidden line view, projection views; sectional views, inserting sectional views, aligning sectional views, and multiple paper space layouts
- Session 15 – render modes, display hidden lines as dashed, displaying non-renderable objects, lights, camera properties, camera objects, camera movement, walk through, and render scene environment
