Low Learning Curve

If you’re an AutoCAD LT user, TurboCAD LTE will immediately feel familiar.  You’ll easily recognize the menus, menu items, tools, and icons.  Familiar keystrokes, command line, palette interfaces and even an intelligent cursor have been incorporated for an intuitive, comfortable feel right out of the box.

Power to Get Your Design Projects Done with Ease

From the start you’ll enjoy TurboCAD LTE’s lightning fast zoom & pan navigation performance thanks to graphic acceleration that can handle even the largest drawings.  Architectural users will like intelligent self-healing walls that are ADT compatible.  And TurboCAD LTE even supports external references, or "Xrefs," making editing more efficient and helping to keep drawings in synch.

Key Features

Advanced Drafting and Detailing

TurboCAD LTE offers powerful 2D CAD at an incredible price. It provides all the power tools required to get projects done on time, at a fraction of the cost of AutoCAD LT®, yet is fully .DWG compatible.

Familiar User Interface

No need to re-learn what you already know. Install, start, and get up and running immediately without looking back. TurboCAD LTE’s familiar UI lets you concentrate on creating design and not how to use the software.

  • Toolbars - Standard toolbar and icons function the same way as AutoCAD LT. Simply click and let the drawing begin.
  • Dynamic Input - Familiar heads up display with dynamic input at cursor.
  • Command line - Need the command line? No worries, we have it. Common keyboard aliases and quick keys are already included too and fully customizable. Even the ESC key works as expected.
  • Palettes - Tool palettes provide a fast way to access common and customizable tools with a familiar look and feel.
  • Menus - Pull down a menu and find the exact command you want with no surprises. Call it CAD intuition.

Excellent Workflow

Need to share CAD files with others? TurboCAD LTE supports the latest industry file formats.  Open and save .DWG, .DXF, and .DWF formats from AutoCAD R14 to 2011.  Enjoy superior workflow with Google™ SketchUp and SketchUp Pro .SKP files up to version 8.  Plus HP®.PLT, DoubleCAD™.2CD, and many formats are supported.

Hyper- Accelerated Graphic Performance

Increase zoom and pan performance so you don’t have to wait during a moment of inspiration.   The powerful drawing engine takes advantage of GPU-based graphics cards for lightning fast wireframe displays.  See system requirements for more details.

Support for Xrefs

All of the file formats that may be opened and imported, with the exception of bitmap images, may be used as an external reference (Xref).  The designer may continue to work in AutoCAD or SketchUp, for example, while the drafting continues in TurboCAD LTE.  This helps to minimize duplication of geometry, thereby making editing more efficient and helping to keep drawings in synch.  Xrefs also help keep file sizes down when you use the same large components in multiple drawings, and allow concurrent sharing of data.

Architectural Power

Save time using architectural walls that are self healing with automatic cleanup and AutoCAD Architecture compatibility.  Any block can be used as a custom architectural element that will automatically align to self-healing walls when inserted. 
Advanced handle-based editing of selected objects gives you instant access to sizing, scaling, moving, rotating, and positioning without selecting multiple tools.  Brush styles, including hatch patterns, can be created using bitmaps, transparency, and full color. Hatch patterns can even be used in layered combination for a better expression of your design concept.

Features You've Been Waiting For

TurboCAD LTE provides many top user requested features such as, transparent fills, draw order by layer (recently improved and expanded), explodable viewports, new pdf underlay, bezier curves, flatten 3D to 2D views, a new purge tool, ability to prioritize snaps, advanced polyline editing, automatically scale units between drawings, parametric variable palette, embed/bind image files in a drawing, input multiple unit types on-the-fly, and much more.

Unique and Compelling Tools

TurboCAD LTE also has productivity tools not found in AutoCAD LT that can accelerate the drawing experience.  Special line, arc, and circle tools automatically create tangent, parallel, and perpendicular entities without snaps, allowing the user to proceed without resetting their snap modes.
Tools such as multiline, bezier curves, and fixed ratio ellipses extend the types of entities you can create, expediting drawing production.  And modify tools, such as meet-two-lines and convert-to-curve, eliminate the use of cumbersome tools found in other CAD applications.

Can I Upgrade to TurboCAD LTE v4 from my current TurboCAD Software?

Users of TurboCAD LTE v3 can upgrade to TurboCAD LTE v4 or TurboCAD LTE Pro v4 by responding to one of our email promotions, or by contacting IMSI/Design Sales at 1-800-833-8082 (1-415-483-8000 outside the USA) or via email . However, because TurboCAD LTE is specifically designed to be a companion product to AutoCAD, or a replacement for AutoCAD LT, the program handles files very differently. Therefore, it is not appropriate as an upgrade to TurboCAD Pro Platinum, TurboCAD Pro, TurboCAD Deluxe, or TurboCAD Designer, and we currently do not offer upgrade pricing to users of these products.

System Requirements

Minimum System Requirements

  • Pentium IV Processor.
  • Microsoft® Windows XP - 512 MB RAM, Microsoft® Vista 1 GB RAM, Microsoft® Windows 7
  • 1 GB RAM
  • 300 MB of free hard disk space depending on accessory applications installed
  • 64+ MB of swap space
  • Super VGA (1024 x768) display
  • High Color (16 bit) graphics card
  • 4X DVD-ROM drive with 32 bit drivers

Your experience will be greatly enhanced with newer generation, higher speed CPU, 2-4 GB RAM, and larger display resolution.

Optional GPU-accelerated wireframe render mode requires a supported graphic accelerator. The latest video drivers are typically required. Newer boards with more VRAM generally provide greater performance. Most cards in the NVIDIA® Quadro FX 1000 series, GeForce FX series, GeForce 6, 7, and 8 series, plus AMD ATI Radeon family, ATI FireGL X family, and FireGL V family of cards are supported; as well as INTEL® Integrated graphics series GMA 3000 and GMA X3000
