KeyCreator Direct CAD

In 2003, CADKEY was renamed KeyCreator Direct CAD and is the only CAD software that can reliably read, edit and convert all the information contained in CADKEY files.

Today, KeyCreator is known for inventing 3D Direct Modeling; history-free modeling for design, engineering and manufacturing professionals. KeyCreator 3D Direct CAD allows for creation and editing of geometry without regard to the order, origin or method of creation of the geometry. KeyCreator’s easy to use CAD software technology uses 3D, wireframe, 2D and surface technology in a single workspace to create read and edit geometry created in nearly all of the most popular CAD programs and standard formats.

KeyCreator Direct CAD is the choice alternative for designers, manufacturers, and analysts that want a flexible fast way to create, change, analyze or communicate a mechanical part or design.

What can KeyCreator Direct CAD do for you?

  • Quickly produce 3D design concepts – there are no constraints.
  • Modify nearly any geometry as if sculpting in clay.
  • Easily add filets, boolean additional shapes, cut holes.
  • Never experience rebuilding errors. You create geometry in real time.
  • Add precision to your design with sophisticated modeling tools.
  • Analyze your model to optimize the quality and cost of your final product.
  • Import CAD models from other software packages and make edits directly to the geometry.
  • Export CAD files in multiple formats.
  • Produce drawings to communicate your design or manufacturing instructions.
  • Go paperless using the Spectrum Viewer.
  • Machine your CAD model with KeyCreator Machinist.
  • Edit your design and the NC file automatically updates.
