From the Introduction:

Not so long ago I saw a MoI tutorial by Michael A. Maynard that illustrates the steps required to create a molded plastic stacking chair. The chair looks very cool and I thought that it would be terrific if we could create it in TurboCAD. MoI makes the process somewhat easy since it has a ‘Flow’ tool that allows a user to basically project one shape onto another. Unfortunately, TurboCAD does not possess such a tool and an alternate means is needed to create the molded shape that is crucial to the design. Luckily TurboCAD Pro Platinum has some sheet metal tools which will make the creation of the chair possible. Although we will not get as elaborate as Mike does in his tutorial, we will work towards a very decent representation of it.

I hope that you enjoy the tutorial.

Best regards, Don

TurboCAD Pro V21.2 – Curio Cabinet is a 365 page fully illustrated tutorial that leads the reader through every keystroke to produce the curio cabinet that is pictured on the cover of the tutorial.

TurboCAD Pro V21.2 – Curio Cabinet is available on the Textual Creations Shopping Page. Sample pages are available there.

From the Introduction:

It is time for a woodworker’s tutorial and what better construct than an elegant curio cabinet with a semi-complex design.

Unlike most of the tutorials offered by the author, this particular tutorial is approached with a ‘design as we go’ format. As such, there is the occasional design change made within the tutorial. Making changes helps illustrate the thinking behind designing and illustrates methods to edit parts as needed due to design changes. Making changes is definitely something a designer will need to know how to do as he or she proceeds with all future designs.

Within the tutorial the reader will be lead through each keystroke to produce every component of the curio cabinet that is illustrated on the cover of the tutorial (with the exception of some downloaded standardized parts that get inserted). The reader will also learn how to insert standard lighting, will learn how to utilize render scene luminance and establish a render scene environment. Additionally, the reader will learn how to render their drawing and save it in a high resolution image format.

I just wanted to say thanks to everyone for your part in making 2014 such a great year and I’d like to wish you all the best in 2015. I hope that your new year is filled with good times, good health and a much prosperity.

Best wishes, Don

Happy New Year 2015
