IMSI Design Ships New TurboCAD Civil 2016

Complete 2D/3D Design and Analysis Software for Civil Engineers

NOVATO, CA--(Marketwired - July 20, 2016) - IMSI®/Design, the developer of the #1 best-selling CAD in retail, announced today the release of new TurboCAD Civil 2016, a complete 2D/3D CAD application with specialized tools for civil engineering.

"Civil Engineers have been looking for an affordable software solution for surveying, data collection, analysis, and road design. They now have it and much more with TurboCAD Civil." states Bob Mayer, President of IMSI/Design.


TurboCAD Civil comes with an integrated suite of advanced tools for civil design, civil drafting, surveying and data collection that can be used for road surface and road corridor design and analysis, grading, parcel design, map production, land surveying, water and sewer line documentation, and more.

Create Surfaces with Points - Import points using any of the supported CAD and Shape file types, to accurately create surfaces and solids.

Triangular Irregular Network (TIN) Tools - Using the Triangular Irregular Network (TIN) tools to you will be able to filter and optimize your geometry.

Contours - Create major and minor contours with elevation data.

TIN Surface Profile Along a Polyline -Allows users to (1) station interval distance, (2) plan view, (3) save data to the clipboard, and (4) save a simple graph to the clipboard.

Flow Lines Tool - Display slope angles and direction at any desired point on your surface.

Cross Sections - Access tools to quickly create surface cross-sections.

Image Maps - Generate an image map with colors based one elevation, aspect, or slope.

Calculate Volume - The Side Slope tool allows users to calculate the volume between two surfaces

Road Surface and Corridor Tools - Create roads and road cross sections. Each cross section includes: (1) Cut area, (2) Fill area, (3) Incremental cut volume, (4) Incremental fill volume, (5) Total cut volume, and (6) Total fill volume.

Horizontal Curve Tool - It starts by selecting a polygon. The vertices of the polygon are assumed to be the PIs (point of intersections) of the road to be designed or the water/sewer line to be documented. The tool allows you to define the curves that connect one segment between two PIs to the segment between the next PIs using a radius of the desired curve (or max available based on segment lengths). It allows you to depict the station offsets and distances with or without curves added. When curves are added their starts and ends are part of the object display and the text printout.


TurboCAD Civil is built on the popular, award-winning TurboCAD application. It offers hundreds of drawing, modifying, dimensioning and annotation tools. Materials, lighting, and photorealistic rendering create powerful presentations of any design. Plus, easily share your work with extensive file support including AutoCAD .DWG, SketchUp .SKP, and STL for 3D printing.

Availability and Pricing

TurboCAD Civil 2016's suggested retail price is $499.99 and is available now. A plug-in called the Civil Design Suite for TurboCAD is also available to users that have already purchased TurboCAD Pro Platinum, TurboCAD Pro, or TurboCAD Deluxe 2016.
