From 2003 through 2005 significant enhancements were made to the TurboCAD Professional product. Specifically, Spatial’s Deformable Modeling engine was enabled in version 9.5, while D-Cubed’s 2D Constraint Manager was added in version 10.5. In June 2005, IMSI re-entered the Macintosh market with the launch of TurboCAD and TurboCAD 3D. These products were private-label licenses from CADSoft Solutions.

TurboCAD 14 was released in 2007 including Terrain Modeling functionality.
In 2006, the ability to unlock additional functionality through special serial number and activation key pairs was introduced with TurboCAD v12. Collections of architectural and mechanical features were ‘packaged’ together and sold successfully to TurboCAD Professional owners. Architectural features included architectural object types (windows, doors, stairs and rails) based on Autodesk’s ADT product, meaning that while TurboCAD could now read an ADT (DWG) file with these architectural object types, AutoCAD itself could not.
IMSI/Design, LLC, the current owner of HiJaak, also produces TurboCAD.

TurboCAD Pro Basic and Platinum editions contain general drafting tools, as well as tools for 3D architectural and mechanical design. Both editions can create ACIS Solids or TC Surface objects, as well as Surface Meshes. The Basic edition contains a limited set of architectural and mechanical tools, whereas Platinum contains all the tools. For less demanding users, a less expensive TurboCAD Deluxe 2D / 3D version is available. Its 3D tools are TC Surface tools, and it has a limited amount of architectural and mechanical tools. For users needing only 2D functionality, there is the much less expensive TurboCAD Designer. With the exception of TurboCAD Designer, the other TurboCAD releases support both 2D drafting and 3D modeling tools.
TurboCAD 18 was released in March 2011 and included a partial implementation of the Redway RedSDK drawing engine.
In 1993, IMSI began to outsource the development of TurboCAD. After a trip to Russia by Martin Sacks, IMSI hired 3 Russian programmers who began work on TurboCAD Windows v2. Included in these 3 original hires were Victor Bazarov, who later came to work in San Rafael for IMSI and Alex Presniak who went on to start SoftDev on behalf of IMSI.
From 2009 on, there has been a shift out of traditional 'brick and mortar' resellers of TurboCAD, to more online resellers such as Amazon, Apple, CAD & Graphics, and Purch, as well as educational and corporate resellers such as JourneyEd, Lifeboat, SHI and Softmart. TurboCAD however continues to be sold in traditional resllers such as Fry's Electronics, Micro Center, Office Depot, and Office Max.

TurboCAD 22 was released in March 2015 and was re-branded as TurboCAD 2015. The LightWorks rendering module was removed from the program and is now only available as a purchased plug-in. Point cloud viewing and editing functionality was also introduced into this version
TurboCAD was released around the same time as Generic CADD in the United States. Both TurboCAD and Generic CADD’s marketing objectives were the same – create a viable, low-cost competitor to AutoCAD. But because Generic CADD launched in the U.S. before TurboCAD, it received much more positive press about its low price, (approximately $600 originally), and quickly achieved a large and loyal customer base. The release of Generic CADD in the PC market was, at that time, the biggest ‘CAD event’ since Autodesk had reinvented CAD pricing with its initial release in 1981.
With the release of TurboCAD v2 DOS and v1 Windows in 1993, IMSI decided to begin using direct mail campaigns as a means of cost effectively increasing its user base and over the next two years became the primary advertising technique. Revenues for direct mail sales of TurboCAD grew to over $20 million annually in 1993, with successful prospect direct mail campaigns being sent out on a nearly monthly basis in the U.S., Canada, UK and Australia. In 1993, IMSI released the first Macintosh versions of TurboCAD – Standard retailed for $195, while Professional retailed for $495 and offered 3D, wireframe functionality. This technology was purchased from Santiago Montufar’s company, Pegasus Software.
TurboCAD is a CAD software application for 2D and 3D design and drafting which runs on Macintosh and Microsoft Windows operating systems.
TurboCAD was originally developed in South Africa by Hendrik Vermooten and Hein Oosthuizen. Initial hardware support was for a specific device configuration: Hercules monochrome graphics cards, HP7475 plotters with keyboard for data entry. The first version of TurboCAD fitted on a single 360kb floppy disk so that it could run on the original IBM PC. The source code also fitted on a single floppy disk along with the 30kb required by the "development environment": Turbo Pascal 2.0.
The Mac versions of the software are built on a separate codebase and are not directly comparable with the Windows versions. TurboCAD Mac Pro contains both 2D and 3D tools, while the standard version is for 2D drafting only.
