I'm not sure what the other reviewer is complaining about...

I am an experienced PV Engineer / Materials Scientist who has worked with many CAD packages and posses formal drafting experience, amongst many other technical discplines...

Anyway having used numerous Autodesk and AutoCAD packages over time, I now prefer to use Google Sketchup for my PV Architecture / PV Power Plant GIS-located designs, I then for the Electrical design overlays I need a true BIM / BoM CAD system (TurboCAD fits the bill perfectly). In fact, PV symbols are inlcuded in the Symbols 5.0 software if buy the bundle directly off the website... Attribute list exportable software with excellent file conversion capabilities (can natively read/write all the newest Sketchup / AutoCAD / SolidWorks formats and many more).

Also, There are plenty of easy to use tools / palletes / easy to use inputs for 2D/3D. Again I think the other user was an old Autodesk head who didn't like the slightly different take on GUI The navigation of the drawing page is different than Autodesk (but I like it more, once I retrained I'm faster in TurboCAD + Skletchup for 1/10 the cost of Autodesk Revit + Electrical packages. If he took the time to learn, and perhaps upgrade to the $1200 Platinum Edition for super advanced tools - I bet he'd been more pleased.

But for 99% of people using CAD this is a fantastic value.

So again, for Architecture & Energy Design Houses IMSI TurboCAD + Google Sketchup PRO is a god-send.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good CAD for the money September 16, 2011
By ss
Verified Purchase
This software is a good one for 2D cad users and for a fair amount of 3D work as well. If one takes the time to become thoroughly familiar with the tools and various options and what they can and can't do, they'll find alot to like. For 3D,however, there are a good number of edit options that are only available in the more expensive TurboCad versions which is just a way to encourage those who want more in-depth 3D tools to purchase these instead. I'm exploring and testing this program's 3D capabilities and hopefully it will do most of what I want. The object lighting properties take a bit of practice to get the visual output you need as the lighting is cumulative meaning you can completely wash out the object with too much light intensity or too many lighting modifications (or sources) that add too much light. With most issues, you can always go back to wireframe view and pick up your drawing and reset the default lighting values in the options menu. A good product so far as I discover what this program's capabilities are.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good CAD deal May 26, 2013
Verified Purchase
First let me say this is not the current version (v. 18) -- that was not known when I bought this product and after registering the product I got emails telling me to upgrade to version 20 for $80 (Which I did). this is full featured CAD that has many Auto CAD features. For the average person the deluxe versions is more than enough -- but there is a Turbo CAD Pro version for those who need all the bells and whistles of Auto CAD -- just check to make sure you get current version on the Turbo CAD website. This version had problems with Windows 7 and the training DVD did not work right. But with the version 20 upgrade I bought it worked OK. The training videos on DVD are not the greatest, but they will take you though the basics. There is a training DVD bundle you can purchase from Turbo CAD website that is about 3 times the price of the product. -- but I suppose it you need to know everything thing about the CAD software that would be good information tool. Compared to the price of Auto CAD this is a very good deal.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great program but has learning curve. March 8, 2013
By Mark M.
Verified Purchase
I bought this to learn about CAD and try to teach myself. I comes with video tutorials which help a great deal. There is a learning curve that can be discouraging. Just keep going. I would have liked to see a manual included so I can have the book opened while trying new features. Thats why it got 4 stars.

used this now for 2 months and find it to be a great tool. I've since upgraded to v20 and still love it. this is an outstanding drawing software for the price. I've used autocad R14 and 2000 in the past for work , which is why I'm so impressed. also great tech support.

This almost equals AutoCAD but is considerably cheaper to buy and install. It can display the drawings and modify them when required.
