Only a few months after acquiring the assets of Cadkey Corp., Japanese software developer Kubotek Corp. has launched a new product line as a successor to Cadkey mechanical design products. Named KeyCreator, the new product line will include 2D/3D design, drafting, NC programming and reverse engineering capabilities.

“Along with available NC capabilities, the initial KeyCreator release in April expanded the product line’s unique Pure Geometry modeling approach with localized parametric feature editing and sophisticated deformation techniques,” explains John Wright McCullough, Kubotek USA product manager. “Later this year, the product line will include the reverse engineering and advanced modeling technology which was developed by Kubotek and is currently available in the Japanese market.”

KeyCreator 2D and 3D toolpath utility options support very fast toolpath generation. For 3C operations, KeyCreator provides automatic gouge-free toolpath generation in three axes with five-axis indexing. Toolpaths are saved in the same file as the part geometry, providing smiplified data management.
