TurboCAD Mac PowerPack


PowerPack is an addon module to the TurboCAD MAC products that extends the standard functionality of TurboCAD with tools for 3D printing, mesh verification and repair, and conversion of meshes to precise solids (analytics/NURBS).

  • The Pro configuration includes all the features in standard plus:
  • Conversion from general mesh to analytic solids\
  • Convert from quad meshes to NURBs surface or solids
  • Precise coordinate comparison between mesh and NURBS

  • Video: Mesh To NURB Solid + Features

Demonstrates the creation of a piggy bank using a variety of PowerPack tools. The design starts from a quad mesh that is converted into a precise NURB solid. Downstream modeling operations such as shelling, splitting, booleans, and blending are then added to achieve the final design.
