I have 30+ years in computer drafting./engineering and proficient it 5-3d modeling programs. I purchased Turbocad Pro Platinum and it has been the most frustrating software that I have ever used. Right down to not being able to input simple mathematical formulas when placing objects, lines,circles etc. Every other software I have use has been able to do this. I am constantly going back and forth to the calculator to place objects and it is very time consuming.
Now to my problem. The attached file has a pretty simple part and drawing. I have it set to english. The basic size of 6x7x1 is correctly dimensioned even though when I initially dimension like the 6" it displays as 5.42 while dragging then switches to 6 when placed.
The center of the large circle is 3" from the side and 5.25" from the bottom
. The 3" dimension is correct but no matter what I do the vertical dimension is 4.74"!!!!! Same with the bolt pattern. it is actually 2.408 x 2.408 but dimensions 2.170" This is crazy. The large circle correct if I was dimension in metric, while dragging it is in English and as soon as I place it to changes to metric.
Anyone want to take a stab at this??
