TurboCAD PC vs Mac

Recommended Posts

I had an interesting conversation with the TurboCAD sales dept. today.  I have the choice of using a 32 bit PC (Windows10) or a 64 bit Mac (10.10 Yosemite) so I inquired as to the capabilities, ease of use, support, service, etc.  between the two.  The reviews are mostly good for the PC version and horrible for the Mac version.  He confirmed that the PC version is much better.

A lot of PC programs get ported straight across to Macs.  The problem is that often, the developers/programmers don't take the time to test (or rather the company won't give them the resource for this) and functionality is often lost.  The OS's are just different enough that what works on the PC won't work on a Mac.

I use TurboCad Designer (2D only version) on the Mac, and have had no issues with it.  I'm a relatively new CAD user, so I can't make any real comparisons.
