Marlborough, MA – July 21, 2003 – CADKEY Corporation, a leading developer of Windows®-based mechanical design and drafting software used by mechanical design and manufacturing professionals worldwide for nearly two decades, announced today that it has signed a Letter of Understanding with IMSI® (OTC “Bulletin Boards”: IMSI) of Novato, CA, to partner on jointly marketing and distributing their complementary CAD/CAM solutions. CADKEY Corporation will offer IMSI’s TurboCAD® Professional, AnimationLab Plug-In for TurboCAD Professional, and TurboCADCAM on its CADKEY Webstore (
www.cadkey.com/webstore) and through participating CADKEY Resellers worldwide. IMSI will in turn market and sell CADKEY’s mid-range solutions to offer next-level functionality to its customers.
Robert W. Bean, P.E., President and CEO of CADKEY Corporation, states, “Offering IMSI’s low-cost, mass-distributed products to our customer base allows us to continue to focus on developing our mid-range professional products for mechanical design and manufacturing while offering complementary solutions that are perfect for customers who don’t need extensive solid and surface modeling. We are working closely with IMSI to insure interoperability between our products via our OpenDWG component technology. CADKEY users who are looking for affordable drafting, animation and CAM solutions to supplement their CADKEY installations will find great value in these three powerful IMSI products.”
Robert Mayer, Executive Vice President of IMSI, stated, “IMSI was looking for a �next level’ upgrade path for our TurboCAD Professional customers. We chose CADKEY products for their affordable yet comprehensive blend of easy to use solid modeling, advanced complex surface modeling, 2D drafting, 3D wireframe and mechanical design automation tools. CADKEY products are a perfect migration path for TurboCAD customers particularly because they offer advanced NURBS-based freeform solid and surface modeling, where the models can be passed through to downstream applications such as CNC machining. They also support third party applications such as finite element analysis, mold design, manufacturing and many more.”
