TurboCAD software Professional edition is orientated towards BIM system.

TurboCAD Pro includes an integrated suite of architectural tools that accelerate productivity in design and drafting, or in the documentation of existing compatible architectural models. TurboCAD architectural objects are AutoCAD® Architecture (ACA) compatible so that .DWG models with ACA extensions may be read, modified, and documented as needed. Architectural Tools included in TurboCAD Pro are Wall, Window, Door, Roof, Stair, Marker, Schedule, and Terrains. And all the architectural objects have both 2D and 3D representations, so that elevations, floor plans, and ISO views are easier to document. Also including simple BIM with IFC import and export. Import and export data to/from the Industry Foundation Classes (IFC) format, the industry standard for BIM information. In addition to custom data, geometry for walls, doors, windows, slabs, and roofs can be shared.  This functionality is limited in TurboCAD Deluxe and Expert. (PP, EX, ).
