3.0 out of 5 stars TurboCAD for MAC Version 5 October 26, 2011
I have used TurboCAD on PCs and more recently MACs probably back to version 1 on the PC, and more recently version 3 on the MAC. TurboCAD version 5 is a good program for visualizing designs and has many powerful tools; however, it does have a significant flaw. It does not handle special characters properly in the object editor. Although you can work around this by typing the data correctly the first time, if you update or find you have made an error, editing is not an option since the object editor does not handle special characters such as ' (degrees) properly. Needless to say it is very time consuming, to retype all updates or corrections and hopefully you don't accidentally click the object editor in the process. I haven't tried to see what happens when you export.
I discussed this with technical support while considering upgrading to Version 6, but this flaw also exists in version 6. Tech Support was unable to give me a planned fix date or work-around, but they did indicate it was at the top of their list.
So, my recommendation is that if you are just using this for ideas, visualizations, etc it is fine and probably a good inexpensive CAD program. However, if you are using it to design or document, beware that it doesn't handle commonly used special characters, such as degrees, properly.
My experiences with the Tech support have been good to excellent. They are very responsive.

4.0 out of 5 stars turbocad for home design February 16, 2011
Verified Purchase
Very powerful product. Has many features. Most functions are very intuitive. Unfortunately, some don't seem to work well with my setup (iMac, 2 gig). An example being the wall/door/window feature. I purchased the product primarily for making residential layouts. When I used the wall function, the response time on my computer became very slow (watched a lot of beach balls). I finally reverted to the less sophisticated methods. Also, tutorials could be better. I don't mind spending more time watching tutorials...Turbocad's tutorials seem to be very short and almost too basic. The manual is the same...doesn't explain in enough detail. I gave 4 stars because this is a very powerful product for a good price.

1.0 out of 5 stars Mac buyers beware March 5, 2012
By AJ
Think long and hard before you buy this program. If you understand CAD and you might have a chance. I find this program clearly frustrating because I cannot seem to get it to open a common DWG file or convert a PDF file and open it. When you go to get tech support they charge you by the minute over the phone and tell you that you should submit a "ticket" on their website and they will get back to you. I'm still waiting... Not to mention that their online support system sucks. I really wanted to like the program, I have many things I need to get done with it but I just can't seem to get out of the starting block. Good luck to you buyer beware!

3.0 out of 5 stars Turbo Cad - good product, poor support September 11, 2011
Verified Purchase
If you are a total CAD novice, then don't expect sufficient tutorials with Turbo-CAD. I had to buy separate tutorials that ended up costing me more than the the TurboCAD. Once I went through those tutorials, I was able to use the product, but not without the additional support from a third party source.
The tutorials that come with TurboCAD are borderline worthless for beginners.

1.0 out of 5 stars TurboCad for Mac really disappointing January 15, 2013
By Bill
Verified Purchase
I'm a long time TurboCad user and have had two different Windows versions as I have updated to computers that wouldn't run the old version. I mostly use it for designing custom cabinets I build for kitchen remodels. I had projects in the planning stage when poor performance and bugs finally helped me decide to make the switch to Mac. I needed to transfer the drawings. I was delighted to find TurboCad Mac Deluxe v5 2D/3D and load it up. So far, so good. Ok, that's all the good part. Everything else is disappointment. While the Windows version can save drawing files in several different formats, none of them can be read directly by the Mac. I finally found a format that opens but without little details like dimensions and line weight and who knows what else. I suspected a learning curve/user error kind of thing so I wasted a lot of time trying to make it work. It was, after all, the same program - wasn't it? Turns out it isn't even produced by the same developer and it bears only a cartoonish resemblance to the PC version. It's sort of like trying to draw blueprints with Paintbrush or something. It may be good for something but it's useless to me. I wasted my money. Shame on them for calling it TurboCad. It won't let me post without rating so I'm giving it a star but really it earns Zero stars.
