Kubotek USA Introduces KeyMarkUp CAD Viewer for Fast Viewing and Mark Up of
Over Two Dozen CAD Formats.
MARLBOROUGH, Mass. -- May 7, 2013
Kubotek USA is proud to welcome KeyMarkUp CAD Viewer to its family of CAD
software products. KeyMarkUp views and marks up over two dozen CAD file
formats. With the addition of markup capabilities, more supported file types,
exporting and mold and die modules, and a simplified interface, KeyMarkUp
provides superior functionality and value to those who want to view and
communicate CAD data.
KeyMarkUp CAD Viewer gives engineers a very powerful method to measure,
analyze, annotate, print and export CAD data for better communication,
collaboration and more accurate quoting. A dynamic selection tool, for
instance, allows users to easily create simple cross sections of complex parts
or assemblies to complete difficult measurements or geometry checks. Multiple
dimensioning, measuring and mass property features and calculating tools, as
well as mold design tools, simplify quoting and estimating.
The optional mold and die module increases mold-makers’ productivity by
enabling them to use several mold specific features to better analyze models
to locate problems or to prepare more accurate quotations. KeyMarkUp mold
tools include draft angle analysis, thickness analysis, shrinkage calculation,
static interference check and calculation of projected surfaces.
KeyMarkUp can quickly open very large assembly files and nearly all of the
most popular 2D and 3D CAD formats including CATIA V4 & CATIA V5 (2D and 3D),
Pro/Engineer & Creo (2D & 3D), JT Open, I-DEAS, 3D XML, VDA-FS, SolidWorks (2D
& 3D), Siemens PLM NX. In all, 32 viewing formats are available today, and yet
no CAD experience is necessary to navigate the intuitive, simple interface of
KeyMarkUp. This ease-of-use makes KeyMarkUp a CAD viewer that can be easily
deployed throughout any organization.
Tony Anderson, Vice President of Comparison Suite Products, states, “With
CATIA V4 at end of life, the KeyMarkUp CAD viewer will quickly become the
‘go-to’ alternative for any company who needs to continue work with CATIA V4
CAD files. The ‘quick open’ option of KeyMarkUp makes opening large assemblies
a snap—and that’s something many major OEMs will find extremely useful.”
KeyMarkUp can also export various file types, including 3D PDF, STEP, IGES,
DXF, DWG, JPEG, STL and 15 additional file formats. Simple screen captures of
annotated views enhance communication options. These full export and screen
capture capabilities will enhance communications options, customer proposals,
web and marketing content.
Matt Carr, Vice President of Sales and Support, says, “KeyMarkUp contains some
of the best tools for viewing CAD models and assemblies. Couple that with the
ability to add dimensions, notes and annotations, and KeyMarkUp gives program
managers, engineers, designers, estimators and marketing the data they need
without the complexity and price of maintaining multiple CAD seats. Simply
put, KeyMarkUp will help users focus and highlight the areas within CAD files
that are most important to their particular projects.”
KeyMarkUp is available in two versions: Basic and Premium. KeyMarkUp Premium
is full featured and contains popular file translators. KeyMarkUp Basic
contains all the tools and features found in KeyMarkUp Premium, but with less
file import options. As mentioned, optional Mold and Export modules are also
available. An introductory offer is available: KeyMarkUp Premium will sell for
$1295; KeyMarkUp Basic is available for $595. Read more about KeyMarkUp,
