Any time the screen goes black there is a conflict with Redsdk. The solution is to run in GDI mode.
The dynamic cut plane is redsdk only. In 2017 there is a message that appears when user’s drivers do not specifically support the cut plane functionality. If this is the only time the user gets the corruption when they can run Redsdk but will have to do so without using the cut plane.
After the 21st April, 2017, SketchUp will cut off the ability of SketchUp users of versions 6, 7 and 8 to buy the latest SketchUp at an upgrade price.
After that date SketchUp will treat these users as new customers who have to pay the full price if they want the latest version.
Below are three links to IMSI, the publishers of TurboCAD giving information about the new TurboCAD versions. You will note that they have given up the idea of having a Pro and a Pro Platinum version, there’s just a pro Platinum version, wave goodbye to Pro.
However, there is now a halfway house between Deluxe and Pro Platinum called Expert.

Occasionally I’ll get a call from someone saying that their keyboard shortcuts have stooped working, or perhaps the delete key has ceased working. The quick fix for this is often to reset the defaults. So you go to TOOLS – Customize and in the General Section hit the Default button. Moat of the time this solves the problem, the downside is that it resetts all defaults, so if you screen is in any way customized, you will have to do this again.
However, if this does not work, or there are other problems with functionality, you would need to try removing the contents of the built-in folder as your next step in troubleshooting anything strange or unheard of.
Reported symptoms range from Unhandled Exceptions (UEs) to tools completely missing from the program’s commands list, as well as the loss of keyboard shortcuts and other default keyboard commands. Another commonly reported symptom is one or more tools will suddenly stop working as designed. In many cases deleting the contents of the built-in folder specific to the product will solve the problem.
Below shows you where you will find the Built In Folder for you version.
C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\IMSIDesign\TurboCAD 2016\Professional x64\Profiles\Built-in
C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\IMSIDesign\TurboCAD 2016\Deluxe x64\Profiles\Built-In
C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\IMSIDesign\TurboCAD 2016\Designer x64\Profiles\Built-In
Apple only have their security open for Applications purchased/downloaded from the App Store
You can however, bypass this security function quite easily.
Simply right click (or ctrl+click if you don’t have a dual click mouse) and choose Open. You will still receive a warning that the application is from an unidentified developer but will have the opportunity to proceed any way.
Users on OS Sierra who have downloaded the TC Mac training guide get a message that says “This app has been damaged and should be moved to the trash” when they try to run the app from the zip file. Below is a response with instructions for users on how to fix the issue.
The application is not damaged. Apple has changed some security settings in OS Sierra which have caused this issue. To get the product installed you will need to run some terminal commands and then change a setting in the System Preferences to allow you to install apps downloaded from anywhere.
The steps will be as follows
- Run the terminal command enabling the needed feature
- Change the setting to allow apps downloaded from anywhere in the Security and Privacy section of the System Preferences
- Move the app to the applications folder and click on it to run it
- After the app has been successfully run from the applications folder once you can then return the security setting to the default and the app will still run
Here is a link with a very detailed article on how to run the terminal command and change that setting.
Sorry for the inconvenience. Let me know if you require any assistance with this process.
Don Cheke is a world authority on TurboCAD, he was a huge help when I was learning TurboCAD especially when it came to 3D, which was a complete mystery until I spent a few days with Don. (He has a lot of patience).
Don’s tutorials are extremely good, they take you through exercises very slowly and carefully leading you by the hand and never presuming prior knowledge.
Also on Don’s site you will find quick tips and a gallery that shows you just what can be achieved with TurboCAD.
Have a look – you will certainly learn something.
