Bed plate, crankshaft, bearings and fly wheel. I have 5 A0 sheets that will be translated to CAD, going to take me sometime.

Nigel, I will be doing drawings and I should do them as I go but I am finding some slight errors/collisions that need to be seen to. You will be welcome to them.

I summarize:

very, very depressing and frustrating the whole. I bought the notebook assuming that the GTX 1060, Redsdk and Turbocad 2016PP would finally work together properly. Think, it does not work.

I have now reinstalled TC, because I had but some disfigured. (There were always internal errors).

I changed the settings as follows:
In the NVidia graphics card settings: TCW23.exe added
preferred graphics processor: integrated graphics

In turbocad under native draw:
Redsdk clicked
It will now be shown under "Show Video system info":
Intel HD Graphics 630 ... etc.

The success was:
2D objects are in wireframe mode as desired and !! while drawing !! displayed.
In Supress Hidden Lines I put on "Draw hidden lines dashed"
If necessary, tick "Nonrenderable Objects" (if desired)
In draft mode render type: RedSDK under RenderingMode: RedSDK Draft
In Quality mode: Rendering type: RedSDK under RenderingMode: Raytrace Preview

Under Advanced mode: I do not know, because under Renderstyle there are 8 possibilities? Which is recommended?

So now all I have to do is get TC to save all the settings. Every time I open a new drawing (New from Scratch)
I redo all settings.

I think I could have stayed with TC17 (not TC2017). Following the motto: "Never change a running system".
With the money, I could have made a great holiday.

Thanks again to everyone. Maybe you could still answer my questions about "Advanced Mode".

Until then and a nice weekend
In that case you need to clear the contents of the Built-In folder.

Shut down TurboCAD.
go to %AppData%\IMSIDesign\TurboCAD 2017\Deluxe x64\Profiles\Built-In in Windows Explorer.
Delete the contents.
Restart TurboCAD.
All the deleted files will be rebuilt after the program has run completely, one time.

The TurboCAD UI should now be set to its factory defaults.

Thanks Henry and have a great evening!
Thanks Henry

I know it's difficult to explain this, Your answer is a good one but I just want have the fillet you describe at the base of one part not in fusionning two objects

But I'll try your suggestion and make a 3D slice by Workplane after that

Thanks for your fast response :-)


Yeah, that's what I would do, although slicing "by Workplane" may or may not be the best choice.

Yeah, i think that is next step, but a last Q, do you have some kind of local network running on your machine ??
