Scott Sweeney, Vice President of Marketing states, “KeyCreator 2014 is the
most complete, sophisticated, yet intuitive 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.”
