Free Viewer Reads New CADKEY V20 File Format

First CADKEY V20 Viewer Now Available for Anyone to Download Free

Marlborough, MA - October 31, 2002 - CADKEY Corporation, a leading developer
of Windows-based manufacturing and mechanical design software worldwide,
announced today the release of the new CADKEY V20 Viewer that is now
available as a free download on their website at This is the very first CADKEY Viewer
available on the market that enables users to view the all-new-architecture
files for CADKEY GraphX and CADKEY Workshop V20. The product is an easy,
convenient way for both CADKEY users and non-CAD users to view data stored
in the new CADKEY ".CKD" file format without the risk of modifying the file
in any way. It is ideal for shop floor personnel who need to view a CADKEY
part or drawing and measure distances without having to learn or install a
full CADKEY software product. Engineering managers can use it to quickly
review models or drawings for bidding on jobs. Further, an HTML export tool
enables users to instantly create a web page of their 3D model or 2D drawing
for viewing and collaboration with anyone around the world. The product's
simple Windows-style interface makes it easy to use by departments outside
of engineering, such as manufacturing, sales, marketing, support and service

        The CADKEY V20 Viewer lets users modify the way the file is
displayed using standard CADKEY pan, zoom, render and rotate tools to
closely examine a 3D model or 2D design. Any size or distance on a CADKEY
model can be measured, and entity attributes and positions can also be
verified. Level mask, views, viewports, and display/hide status of reference
parts (assembly) are all user-controllable. The CADKEY V20 Viewer has full
support for all CADKEY entity types and text, and information stored in part
property pages can also be viewed. For maximum flexibility and speed, users
can quickly toggle between all parts, 3D models, and drawing layouts
contained in the file as well as open multiple CADKEY partfiles at the same
time. The toolbars and shortcut keys can also be custom-configured.

        Designs can be printed or plotted to all Windows-supported devices.
Users can create custom print setup configurations with full control of pen,
color, width and dash size handling. In addition, images can be exported
into TIFF, Windows Bitmap (BMP), Windows Metafile (WMF), HPGL, HPGL/2,
HOOPS Metafile (HMF), HOOPS Stream File (HSF), or an HTML web page. The
minimum system requirements for the CADKEY Viewer are: Windows� 98, ME, NT
4.0, 2000 or XP and 30 MB hard drive space for installation.
