Kubotek USA is now shipping KeyCreator 2014 in the Americas.
KeyCreator 2014 contains many new features and numerous enhancements and updates. Additionally, a new photorealistic rendering option is available, as well as a new free student version.
According to a release, as the most complete Direct Modeler available, KeyCreator Direct CAD is the CAD software choice for manufacturers, tool, die and mold makers, job shops and product designers. With continued focus on interoperability, KeyCreator can open and work with CAD files from nearly anyone or any CAD system. The new features and improvements aim to increase productivity and efficiency of many everyday modeling tasks, giving users even more options to build or edit CAD models quickly and with reduced likelihood of errors.
KeyCreator 2014 will release both a wire-EDM option and animation with collision detection in a future, scheduled point release. Wire-EDM will be an available module for the integrated KeyCreator Machinist add-on product. Animation with collision detection will available as part of KeyCreator Direct CAD.
An optional package for creating photorealistic images from 3D models is also available with KeyCreator Artisan. This new application is a tool that contains pre-packaged lighting and environments and a library of drag and drop materials. Rendering options are defined and remain linked to the model throughout any model revisions or updates. With these plentiful rendering and image creation options photorealistic images can be quickly produced.
The company noted that the new KeyCreator Student Version is available free of charge to approved, eligible students. Students simply need to request a KeyCreator Student Version license here. The KeyCreator Student Version contains the same professional-level precision design tools as the commercial version of KeyCreator, including Adobe PDF output capabilities and 3D STL for rapid prototyping. File exporting capabilities are limited. The KeyCreator Student Version license is renewable annually. Students also have unlimited access to hundreds of online courses and learning aids available through Kubotek University.
Scott Sweeney, Vice President of Marketing states, "KeyCreator 2014 is the most complete, sophisticated, yet friendly CAD system for companies that need to work with multiple CAD formats. This includes manufacturers, mold, tool and die makers, and sheet metal fabricators. With enhancements to both layouts and our unique direct editing widget--the Dynahandle--designing, editing and communicating designs has never been easier." He continues, "I don't think you can name any other package that allows you to work seamlessly to design and edit any CAD file, machine it, compare it, analyze it, validate the data, render it and export it accurately at a competitive cost without the need for weeks, months and years of training."
