TurboCAD Pro V16.2 – Handcar Tutorial is a 235 page fully illustrated tutorial that leads the reader through every keystroke to produce the railroad handcar on the cover of the tutorial.

TurboCAD Pro V16.2 – Handcar Tutorial is available on the Textual Creations Shopping Page. Sample pages are available there.

From the Introduction:

Where would new CAD users be without all the interesting objects that can be found in the world of railroading? Most of these objects are excellent subjects to practice drawing with, and with so many free resources available online the whole process is made quite easy. Although the handcar design in this tutorial is based roughly on resources discovered on the internet, the author has made many changes to make it better suited to this tutorial.

Within the tutorial the reader will be led through each keystroke to produce all components of the railroad handcar that is illustrated on the cover of the tutorial. The reader will learn how to create each object by manipulating 2D profiles and 3D primitive shapes. The reader will learn how to set up their drawing, how to insert standard lighting and how utilize render scene luminance. The reader will learn how to establish a render scene environment and the reader will learn how to render their drawing and save it in a high resolution image format.

With the ever increasing base of TurboCAD Deluxe users, I have decided that it is prudent to start producing new Deluxe tutorials again. I am currently working on a completely revised Caboose tutorial that should be ready by the end of this week or very early the next. Keep an eye on this news blog for an announcement when it is ready.
