We are often asked about what symbols are included in TurboCAD. While TurboCAD does include thousands of symbols there are now many online resources to help you with your drawings.
Here are some of the best ones...
Imperial sizes and metric
Metric sizes only – This site includes native TCW files.
Additionally, we recommend searching product manufacturer's websites to see if they have their products available in CAD format.
I have been looking avidly for 2D UK., doors and windows of the 'standard' European Std., Patterns. However I have never had the luck to find one even given all the window companies we have dealt with regularly for many years who mostly at least do not carry cad programs for architects. Do you/we have within Turbocad a European Guru with whom I may make contacct or do you have knowledge of a site from where these details can be found. Plan and elevational description is dead easy to produce yourself but drawing vertical cross section with accuracy in 1:50 / 1/4" scales is a nightmare few of us have the patience to attempt with any success.
Any help would be much appreciated. The drawing of unnecessary detail within Architectural standard drawing practise is not carried out but the showing of such detail would be good for rapidity in draughting. It is also sought for clarity as well as for large scale working drawings when necessary. Differs of manufacturers say, cill, head, mullion, weathering's and other section dims can be coped with, I am sure within dynamic samples when necessary.
Our change to Turbocad is proving very useful following the redundancy of our age old program, we have just a few operational hiccups to overcome as yet though although these are rapidly disappearing.
