Kubotek Delivers On Promised Enhancements with KeyCreator 2014 Version 12.5

MARLBOROUGH, Mass. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — March 11, 2014Kubotek USA has officially released KeyCreator 2014 Version 12.5. KeyCreator is the most complete Direct CAD software package available, offering easy to use tools and optional integrated modules for CAD, CAM, Finite Element Analysis (FEA), CAD comparison, and photorealistic rendering - all within a hybrid CAD modeling (2D, wireframe, 3D and surfacing) environment. The most important new features in KeyCreator 2014 v 12.5 include:

  • CAD animation
  • Direct Dimension Editing Tree
  • Wire EDM option for 2 and 2.5 axis NC milling

The new animation tool in KeyCreator 2014 provides another way to visualize or communicate the function and assembly of designs. Standard settings like motion speed, camera and timeline control aid how a design is viewed, while more advanced features depict how designs will interact and/or react with other bodies or conditions. Capabilities like collision detection pinpoint problems that result from the motion of designs. Coupled with the power and ease of Direct Modeling, users can quickly diagnose and solve any issues with an assembly model.

The KeyCreator Machinist NC module now offers a Wire EDM option for 2-axis NC milling. The integration of KeyCreator Direct CAD and KeyCreator Machinist takes advantage of many direct editing features and functions, while creating ultra-fast tool path generation. Users can optimize machining strategies by running multiple tool path options. KeyCreator Machinist is the easiest to use and most cost effective 2- through 3-axis CAM solution for mold, die & tooling, wood working, rapid prototyping and general machining.

A new Direct Dimension Editing tree further extends the power of KeyCreator’s Direct Dimension editing features by allowing users to assign formulas and relationships between dimensions. With basic programming experience, users can configure and save commands to run automated design adjustments. This saves time and reduces errors when operations are re-executed later.

Mark Parent, COO of Kubotek USA states, “We dedicate this latest release to the hard working manufacturers, mold makers and designers that have asked us to continue to work on KeyCreator’s core technology to make their jobs easier. We will continue to improve the speed, flexibility and efficiency of our software.”

Other enhancements to KeyCreator include, interoperability updates, refinement of modeling and visualization tools and other improvements to user-specific options to help users complete tasks to their liking and while meeting their modeling goals.

A free trial of KeyCreator Direct CAD is available from Kubotek USA. For more information, visit kubotek3d.com
