KeyCreator 2015 from Kubotek includes KeyCreator Compare, a CAD comparison module that enables the software to import, edit and compare dozens of native CAD files produced from other systems. According to the company, the module expands the use of the software’s proprietary pattern recognition technology to provide users with an easy way to graphically identify, automatically organize and communicate changes to model data via automated PDF reporting. 

CAD comparison can be used for is/was comparisons for quoting manufacturing jobs and changes, design collaboration with customers, and revision management for design updates, among other functions. Users also can use it to document and share their own value-add design work to customers through automated PDF reporting.
