As the most complete Direct Modeler available, KeyCreator 2014 continues to add more tools to aid design and manufacturing professionals. For instance, KeyCreator Artisan is a brand new option that gives users easy-to-use tools to create photorealistic images from 3D models. This new application contains pre-packaged lighting and environments and a library of drag and drop materials. Once the rendering options are defined, they remain linked to the model throughout any model revisions or updates. With these plentiful rendering and image creation options, high quality photorealistic images can be quickly produced.
The new KeyCreator Student Version is available free of charge to approved, eligible students. The KeyCreator Student Version contains the same professional-level precision design tools available 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 will have unlimited access to
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. The KeyCreator Machinist NC module will include a new Wire EDM option for 2 and 2.5 axis NC milling. The integration of KeyCreator Machinist and KeyCreator Direct CAD means users can take advantage of many direct editing features and functions. The software creates ultra-fast tool path generation allowing users to optimize machining strategies by running multiple tool path options.
User-driven improvements and updates to KeyCreator Direct CAD include several drawing related enhancements that fuel productivity. Users with large drawing files will like the new time-saving "Quick Open" option. This feature is extremely valuable for users who need to jump back and forth between models and drawings. Another new feature is the automated creation of drawing revisions from layouts. This automation speeds the release of drawings to production by eliminating many steps and reduces the likelihood of errors.
Other noteworthy enhancements include updated translators, the flexible selection of geometry sets for reuse in later functions, and the use of DynaHandle ToolTips as editable fields for quick, precise moves. This type of direct editing gives users even more options to build the models in the quickest and best way they see fit. Additionally, future KeyCreator 2014 releases will see the addition of animation with collision detection.
