KeyCreator 2019 Delivers Serious Graphical Enhancements

The latest major release of KeyCreator CAD/CAM software from Kubotek3D, KeyCreator 2019, provides significant improvements in graphics performance with large models, several productivity improvements, updates to translators, and the availability of new CAD translators.

“KeyCreator 2019 was built to enhance overall performance and speed of graphics displays,” said Ram Eswaran, CTO of Kubotek3D. “We took an already strong product, and pushed the boundaries of technology to enable users to get their jobs done better and faster.”

Accelerated Graphics

KeyCreator 2019 includes a significant restructuring of the internal data architecture used in combination with the HOOPS engine component from Techsoft3D to render everything seen in the graphical viewport. The result is a dramatic 300% to 600% improvement in frame rate speeds for models with large numbers of faces, especially those using partial transparency.

Productivity Improvements

Quick re-use of model geometry has been improved by providing DynaHandles in the commonly used file import and cut/copy/paste functions. This allows intuitive in-process adjustment to the positioning, rotation, and scale using visual feedback without a multi-step process or needing to execute a separate edit function. 


The Bounding Box function which is used to create a block to surround selected objects, typically for modeling solid metal block, has been upgraded with automatic associative length, width, height dimension entities and also to support offset values to add material around the selected objects.

Support has also been enhanced in surface modeling for dynamically extending a surface and deforming a curve using multiple control point simultaneously.

Updated CAD Translators

New CAD file import translators for the latest versions of JT and Solid Edge files have been added to the Pro and Max levels in KeyCreator 2019. These translators are based on InterOp components from Spatial Corporation.

Additionally, interoperability with other software has been updated with the latest versions of 4 major CAD file formats:

• Autodesk Inventor 2019

• Dassault CATIA V5 R28 (R2018)

• PTC Creo 5.0 (drawings)

• Siemens NX 12 (PMI)

“With many CAD products, large files have to be broken down with assemblies and layers to combat graphics speed issues. KeyCreator 2019 changes that,” said Greg Tiessen, President of Synergetic Group, a 20+ year user of KeyCreator and beta tester of KeyCreator 2019. “Files that would otherwise jerk and struggle through dynamic rotation movement attempts are now completely seamless, and have smooth movement navigating designs. We can quickly and effortlessly view an entire project at once—something we once feared because of the struggles we’d have with graphics, and now fly through our projects effortlessly. This product is the best we have seen in the industry for all file sizes, a real game changer.”
