Members share their experiences using TurboCAD and dessiminate their working knowledge of TurboCAD techniques and methods. Participation is open to all talented and friendly CAD users who might be interested in the group's grass-root efforts to establish a repository of reference information on our publicly searchable user forum, and to build-up an open source library of TurboCAD parts and symbols. We strive to make our spam-free forum a popular destination for those seeking TurboCAD answers and for sharing solutions.
