Avanquest Solutions delivers powerful new CAD Package for Design Professionals Tuesday 18 March 2008 PDF Print Avanquest Solutions announces the immediate availability of TurboCAD Pro 15, IMSI’s powerful, professional 2D and 3D design CAD package for all design professionals - architects, surveyors, joiners, fitters, mechanical engineers and conceptual designers. TurboCAD delivers an outstanding combination of tools, more often associated with costly, high support-dependant CAD solutions. Challenge: Compatibility. Users want to be able to seamlessly import files from other CAD sources so they can carry on with their design project – not spend hours on the phone to technical support trying to resolve problems. Solution: TurboCAD read/writes AutoCAD 2008 and Google SketchUp. It supports a total of 30 CAD and graphic file formats including the ability to save as PDF. Challenge: Cost v Functionality. Solution: TurboCAD Pro 15 has tools normally only found in CAD software costing thousands. TurboCAD uses the ACIS modeling kernel, an impressive component found in high end CAD applications such as AutoCAD and CADKey. The cost of TurboCAD Pro 15 is £699 (inc VAT), AutoCAD 2008 retails at £3,675 (ex VAT). Challenge: Finding CAD software tailored to meet the specific needs of mechanical engineers, designers, architects, builders, and civil engineers, that does not require long intensive and expensive training. Solution: TurboCAD Pro 15 Architectural and Mechanical Packs supply the tools for designers and modelers in any discipline and includes the ability to import those designs into other specialised software. Paul Tracey, TurboCAD Business Development Manager at Avanquest says, “TurboCAD is the best value design tool in its field and there are no hidden support costs or ongoing license fees. A one-off purchase from Avanquest secures the latest CAD technology and free technical support.” Notes to Editors: To see the full feature list for TurboCAD Pro 15, product comparison chart, product range and costs, visit www.turbocad.co.uk Review copies are available on request.
