|Rotate To Any
easy to rotate to any orientation with TubeCAD Pro using the powerful
See the PDF
that describes how easy it is to rotate a tube in TubeCAD.
Number of Bends
|| No more memory
limitations that were imposed by the DOS version.
Try this for power: Enter the coordinates for 5
tubes, each with 50 bends into TubeCAD. It will
automatically-parametrically draw 250 true bends and 245 rotation
views, all neatly ordered for you in a single layout.
| Unlimited View Projection
|| Project any number of
tube views in any direction and distance.
Project orthographically (up, down, left, right)
or at any angle.
There are no limitations to the number of views
you can project from other views.
| True Assembly Layouts
|| Enter any number
of tubes into one layout inside the General Specs
menu. (No more combining layout files.)
| Independently control each tube view
|| Setup each view
independently, or control them as a group. This means that you can now
show one view with OD outlines while another view shows the OD with
surface shading. This independent control includes every view of every
tube - including true views (both bend and rotation).
| Full Layer Control
|| Now you control the
organization of layers in TubeCAD. Use one layer for all entities or
organize the layers anyway you want.
| Font Types Using True Type
|| TubeCAD Pro uses True
Type Windows' fonts in the charts on the layout.
The Style command allows you to pre-define TEXT
STYLES using True Type fonts.
| New Color Control
|| TubeCAD Pro allows you to
use CAD-style color charts to set the entity colors.
The colors are mapped so that they are
| Tube Forms and Hidden Geometry in OD
|| TubeCAD Pro draws tube
modifications in any OD mode - even in outlines.
It even draws the hidden lines of the
modifications and tube-profiles - if you want that kind of detail.
| Tube Forms in True Bend and Rotation
|| OD outlines or meshes
with tube modifications can now be displayed in any
view. This means that even TRUE BEND and TRUE ROTATION VIEWS can show
| Unlimited Preceding/Following Leg Count
|| Any number of
preceding/following legs in any true-view or rotation-view can be
displayed. For example, you can display the entire tube
in true bend 1, then show only part of the tube in the remainder of the
| File-Compatible With Older TubeCAD
|| You can still read your
older TubeCAD files, so you've not lost any of your current investment.
We don't trouble you with terms like "import". We
just allowing you to load the older file data and automatically convert
it for you to the new super-efficient binary format.
|Smarter Block-Up Label Placement
BlockUps Per Straight
| Block-up labels are now
smarter - they know that they need to find the position along a
straight where the distance to the work surface is a nominal value
(like 20 millimeters rather than 20.093 millimeters). You control the
interval size from one nominal value to the next (like every every 1
Now an unlimited number of block-up labels per
straight can be switched ON. (TubeCAD used to only allow one per
straight.) That limitation is gone!
A new enhanced style of block-up labels shows which
side of the blockup line the block will be placed in the tube
view. Simply place the block on the same side of the blockup line as
the as the blockup text label.
| New Properties Editor
|| The new Properties Editor
is a very powerful on-screen tool for changing the hundreds of layout
properties quickly. It responds to on-screen selections:
Select the object or objects on the screen (like a
true bend view)
Right click to show a pop-up context menu.
Select "Properties" in the menu
Edit any of the true
bend view setup values in the editor that appears on top
| Attach Tubes To Other Tubes
|| TubeCAD allows you to
attach any tube to any other tube.
When the primary tube rotates, then the attached
tube also rotates.
| New - UNDO and REDO
|| You can now undo and redo
changes in TubeCAD!
TubeCAD Pro allows you to control the number of
levels of Undo commands you can perform. Allow 10, 100, 1000 - your
| New - MRU List Control
|| Also known as Most
Recently Used file list. TubeCAD Pro can remember any number of files
that you've used previously. You can load them with the click of your
| New - 3RD or 1ST Angle Projection Modes!
|| Engineers around the
world differ in the methods of view projection. For example, Americans
often project using 3RD Angle projection, and many Germans are trained
with 1ST Angle projection.
TubeCAD Pro allows either, so choose the system
that works best for you.
| NEW - Send Data To Benders
|| Send master tube data
directly to benders through a network connection using the Supravision
Set the network path, then send the data
| Programmable Menus, Toolbars, and
|| TubeCAD Pro menus are
The toolbars are programmable. You can add tools
to existing toolbars or even create your own toolbars.
Even the text used used in the command line is
| New Network License Manager (NLM) Package
|| We have developed a new
Network License Manager software package that much easier to install
and maintain. Plus there are other benefits:
There is no more 5-license minimum requirement. One license is enough!
You can order a Network Site License for only $500 (Note: Current
Network Site-License customers get this option for free when they
There is no more replacement of hardware keys when you want to upgrade
to a network site license. This is how it works:
Step 1 - We E-mail you the
License Manager software for your server
Step 2 - You plug your current
TubeCAD Pro key into the server
Step 3 - You run TubeCAD Pro and
enter the server's IP address.
Step 4 - Use TubeCAD Pro.
| Input Data From MicroScribe Arms
|| TubeCAD Pro can accept
direct input from the MicroScribe arms in order to digitize the
centerline of a new tube.
| UNBEND Any Number of bends
|| TubeCAD Pro can unbend
any number of bends in any order in any tube.
| Import DXF Files
|| TubeCAD Pro can allow you
to extract the centerline for a tube from a DXF file.
