MARLBOROUGH, Mass. -- March 11, 2014

Kubotek USA has officially released KeyCreator 2014 Version 12.5. KeyCreator
is the most complete Direct CAD software package available, offering easy to
use tools and optional integrated modules for CAD, CAM, Finite Element
Analysis (FEA), CAD comparison, and photorealistic rendering - all within a
hybrid CAD modeling (2D, wireframe, 3D and surfacing) environment. The most
important new features in KeyCreator 2014 v 12.5 include:

  *CAD animation
  *Direct Dimension Editing Tree
  *Wire EDM option for 2 and 2.5 axis NC milling

The new animation tool in KeyCreator 2014 provides another way to visualize or
communicate the function and assembly of designs. Standard settings like
motion speed, camera and timeline control aid how a design is viewed, while
more advanced features depict how designs will interact and/or react with
other bodies or conditions. Capabilities like collision detection pinpoint
problems that result from the motion of designs. Coupled with the power and
ease of Direct Modeling, users can quickly diagnose and solve any issues with
an assembly model.

The KeyCreator Machinist NC module now offers a Wire EDM option for 2-axis NC
milling. The integration of KeyCreator Direct CAD and KeyCreator Machinist
takes advantage of many direct editing features and functions, while creating
ultra-fast tool path generation. Users can optimize machining strategies by
running multiple tool path options. KeyCreator Machinist is the easiest to use
and most cost effective 2- through 3-axis CAM solution for mold, die &
tooling, wood working, rapid prototyping and general machining.

A new Direct Dimension Editing tree further extends the power of KeyCreator’s
Direct Dimension editing features by allowing users to assign formulas and
relationships between dimensions. With basic programming experience, users can
configure and save commands to run automated design adjustments. This saves
time and reduces errors when operations are re-executed later.

Mark Parent, COO of Kubotek USA states, “We dedicate this latest release to
the hard working manufacturers, mold makers and designers that have asked us
to continue to work on KeyCreator’s core technology to make their jobs easier.
We will continue to improve the speed, flexibility and efficiency of our

Other enhancements to KeyCreator include, interoperability updates, refinement
of modeling and visualization tools and other improvements to user-specific
options to help users complete tasks to their liking and while meeting their
modeling goals.
