From the Introduction:
An important part of any design scheme is the ability to create a list of parts and materials used within a drawing. Although TurboCAD does not have a dedicated bill of materials function per se it does come with some tools that can be used to create a report that can be used in the production of a bill of materials. All of the initial work is done right in TurboCAD and through the onboard export functions some additional automation can be added using Microsoft Excel or other such spreadsheet software.
Within the tutorial the reader will be led through each keystroke to produce all components of the night stand that is illustrated on the cover of the tutorial, with the exception of the hardware which has been supplied. Aside from learning how to draw in TurboCAD, the user will learn how to set up the drawing and how to insert standard lighting. The reader will learn how to establish render scene luminance and a render scene environment. The reader will also learn how to render their drawing and save it in a high resolution image format. The reader will also learn what steps to take to give custom attributes to all the parts of the night stand and how to create a detailed report for use in a final Excel bill of materials. The user will also learn how to use the layout tool to create a cutting plan, a plan that could be exported and perhaps used in conjunction with one’s cnc machine.
