Kubotek USA’s (Booth 424) KeyCreator 2014 CAD software offers new, customer-driven features and a variety of other enhancements and updates. A new photorealistic rendering option also is available as well as a free student version.
With a continued focus on interoperability, the KeyCreator Direct CAD system can open and work with CAD files from virtually any other CAD system. The new features and improvements are designed to increase productivity and efficiency of a variety of everyday modeling tasks, giving users even more options to build or edit CAD models quickly and with reduced likelihood of errors, Kubotek says.
The optional package for creating photorealistic images from 3D models is available with KeyCreator Artisan. This new, easy-to-use application 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.
The new KeyCreator Student Version is available free of charge to approved, eligible students. This 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. Students also have unlimited access to hundreds of online courses and learning aids available through Kubotek University.
A wire EDM option and animation with collision detection module for KeyCreator 2014 will be released in the future. The wire EDM module will be available for the integrated KeyCreator Machinist add-on product, while animation with collision detection will available as part of KeyCreator Direct CAD.
