General Discussion / Re: Trouble painting a part?
« Last post by Tim Stewart on Today at 10:03:21 AM »
I've got 60+ TurboCAD colors set up as Matte and Glass materials; plus they're available in either LightWorks or RedSDK.

Unzip the file to the Materials folder (%AppData%\IMSIDesign\TurboCAD 2015\Deluxe x64\Materials).
Use "Options / Materials / Load Materials…" to load the MAT file into your materials.
They'll show up as a "TurboCAD Color" category.

Ok.  I am doing something wrong.  its not taking it for some reason?  Getting this message?  Attached screenshot

    The path may not be the same on your PC.
    Try the Browse ... option to positively locate your Materials folder.

Regards Tim

I'm not sure why it won't unzip. It works okay on my end on a different machine.

Here's the file unzipped. Once downloaded, strip off the ".TXT" extension and move "TurboCAD Color-Deluxe.mat" to the "Materials" folder.

Hope this works.

Hi All
I bought furniture maker about 6 months ago and got so discouraged I had to drop it because of my work load. They claim there are videos and then there are no videos. There is no help either and the manual is even worse than most of the Turbocad manuals I have used in the past. Any help resources out there. I have read a few threads and seem I am in good company when is comes to confusion. It seems the only person that knows how to use the software can't speak English. Apologetically ( annoyed and sarcastic)

Problems / Re: Turbocad 2016 version 23.2 build 61.2 Keyboard problem
« Last post by Andy H on Today at 04:42:15 AM »
The usual fix for this sort of problem is to reset the workspace.

Tools menu - customise - options tab,    against 'workspace',  either choose your normal workspace (drop down box under the 'Load From' button)  then click 'Load From',     or click the Default button.

Note this will reset the whole workspace, so if you have a lot of customisation, and hadn't previously saved your workspace,  you could use the 'Save In'  to save your existing workspace in case the above doesn't work, type in a a name for your saved workspace before clicking Save In,  then you can Load back your saved workspace and can try a different fix.

Problems / Turbocad 2016 version 23.2 build 61.2 Keyboard problem
« Last post by Roy1405 on Today at 04:21:29 AM »
I have used TCad for many years but this is the first time that it has stopped recognising the keyboard. It has worked OK up until yesterday. The problem is that it will not respond to the Tab and Spacebar Keys. If say I want to draw a square and enter the dimensions it will not respond to the tab key, however if I click onto the objects box and then enter the dimension it will then allow me to tab to the other boxes. The space bar is not recognised at all.  Any ideas anyone because it is driving me crazy?

A small adjustment
We can use SD in TC, it is the SD demo files we cant run in TC, just so that is clear.

SD just open my last ppm,made in TC, a new version of the Cabinet i put out in ppm section some years ago i have worked some more on it, made more profiles and also possible to set out drawers.

And then the youtubelink

General Discussion / What makes a good Drafting Report 1st Class
« Last post by [email protected] on November 20, 2017, 05:13:55 PM »
What are the basic principles of a good drafting report and or construction drawings for the end user. These are going to be used as the basis for documenting the distributor animation, but I want to improve on the quality of other drafting reports like: the individual parts from a plan view, isometric and sectional aspects.

So what makes a good end user report best?

A New version of SD :)
Its a Beta version free to use for TC users until it's ready for sale.
Link;
ftp://serbin:[email protected]/SymbolDesigner/build112

It cant be used directly together with TC at the moment, but we can save as dwg and take the result in to TC already.
Attach some pic that show original and imported dwg's to TC and given material in TC
Original also have some options for material, and we can make more if we need
The cupboard in TC have a lot of them :),( just to show options )
The stol i used smesh Level 1 on the seat and moved it down a bit in TC.

The Cupboard takes only about 10 min to make i think, some dang pretty nice Tools in SD now.
I will make a video tomorrow, to show some basic of the use that i have figured out so far, and add a YouTube link to it here.
