IMSI/Design Announces TurboSite v1.1

NOVATO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- Jan 14, 2013 -- IMSI®/Design, a pioneer in mobile solutions for AEC and the global leader in retail CAD, today announced TurboSite™ v1.1 for iPad™.

Included in TurboSite v1.1 are AutoShapes, an intuitive way to draw accurate geometry with simple gestures.

"AutoShapes are the first gestured-based way to draw in a mobile AEC app," said Royal Farros, CEO of IMSI/Design. "We think AutoShapes are another good example of the type of tools needed for the new mobile platform."

Also included in TurboSite v1.1 is HTML reporting. Data recorded in the field can now auto-generate HTML reports, letting all OS platforms view rich TurboSite data, including Android and Surface tablets and desktop computers.

Designed as the ultimate field and site survey mobile app, TurboSite reinvents the way every architect, engineer, and contractor will approach site visits and documentation.

TurboSite v1.1 includes:

  • AutoShapes: Draw rough shapes with your fingertips and TurboSite will automatically refine to accurate circles, rectangles, and orthogonal lines

  • HTML Reporting: Send TurboSite reports to any platform that supports HTML or web browser, including desktops

  • AutoCAD 2013 DWG support

  • Geo-located DWG support. GeoWalk now automatically reads GPS coordinates in DWG files

  • Dropbox support

  • Enhanced GPS support. Specify drawing unit settings for more accurate location

  • Improved DWF support. Now reads larger files faster with improved visual fidelity

  • Units setting for architectural, metric, and decimal display measurements

  • Text auto-sizes based on specified percentage

  • Enhanced 3D PDF (U3D) support

  • A variety of performance optimizations

  • And more

"We're kicking out our first major update to TurboSite in just over two months," added Farros, CEO of IMSI/Design. "We intend to be quite aggressive on the TurboSite development front for some time to come."

Availability and Pricing

TurboSite v1.1 for iPad has a limited time introductory price of $499 (regularly $999) and is available now.

Free TurboSite Reader v1.1 is also available now.

Free TurboSite Reader contains most of the features in TurboSite, making it an excellent way to test drive the paid app.
