MARLBOROUGH, Mass. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — May 7, 2013 — Kubotek USA is proud to welcome KeyMarkUp CAD Viewer to its family of CAD software products. KeyMarkUp views and marks up over two dozen CAD file formats. With the addition of markup capabilities, more supported file types, exporting and mold and die modules, and a simplified interface, KeyMarkUp provides superior functionality and value to those who want to view and communicate CAD data.
KeyMarkUp CAD Viewer gives engineers a very powerful method to measure, analyze, annotate, print and export CAD data for better communication, collaboration and more accurate quoting. A dynamic selection tool, for instance, allows users to easily create simple cross sections of complex parts or assemblies to complete difficult measurements or geometry checks. Multiple dimensioning, measuring and mass property features and calculating tools, as well as mold design tools, simplify quoting and estimating.
The optional mold and die module increases mold-makers’ productivity by enabling them to use several mold specific features to better analyze models to locate problems or to prepare more accurate quotations. KeyMarkUp mold tools include draft angle analysis, thickness analysis, shrinkage calculation, static interference check and calculation of projected surfaces.
KeyMarkUp can quickly open very large assembly files and nearly all of the most popular 2D and 3D CAD formats including CATIA V4 & CATIA V5 (2D and 3D), Pro/Engineer & Creo (2D & 3D), JT Open, I-DEAS, 3D XML, VDA-FS, SolidWorks (2D & 3D), Siemens PLM NX. In all, 32 viewing formats are available today, and yet no CAD experience is necessary to navigate the intuitive, simple interface of KeyMarkUp. This ease-of-use makes KeyMarkUp a CAD viewer that can be easily deployed throughout any organization.
Tony Anderson, Vice President of Comparison Suite Products, states, “With CATIA V4 at end of life, the KeyMarkUp CAD viewer will quickly become the ‘go-to’ alternative for any company who needs to continue work with CATIA V4 CAD files. The ‘quick open’ option of KeyMarkUp makes opening large assemblies a snap—and that’s something many major OEMs will find extremely useful.”
KeyMarkUp can also export various file types, including 3D PDF, STEP, IGES, DXF, DWG, JPEG, STL and 15 additional file formats. Simple screen captures of annotated views enhance communication options. These full export and screen capture capabilities will enhance communications options, customer proposals, web and marketing content.
Matt Carr, Vice President of Sales and Support, says, “KeyMarkUp contains some of the best tools for viewing CAD models and assemblies. Couple that with the ability to add dimensions, notes and annotations, and KeyMarkUp gives program managers, engineers, designers, estimators and marketing the data they need without the complexity and price of maintaining multiple CAD seats. Simply put, KeyMarkUp will help users focus and highlight the areas within CAD files that are most important to their particular projects.”
KeyMarkUp is available in two versions: Basic and Premium. KeyMarkUp Premium is full featured and contains popular file translators. KeyMarkUp Basic contains all the tools and features found in KeyMarkUp Premium, but with less file import options. As mentioned, optional Mold and Export modules are also available. An introductory offer is available: KeyMarkUp Premium will sell for $1295; KeyMarkUp Basic is available for $595.
