Kubotek USA has released KeyMarkUp CAD Viewer, which views and marks up more than two dozen CAD file formats.
A dynamic selection tool allows users to easily create simple cross sections of complex parts or assemblies to complete difficult measurements or geometry checks, the company says. Multiple dimensioning, measuring and mass property features and calculating tools, as well as mold design tools, simplify quoting and estimating.
The optional mold and die module allows mold-makers to use several mold-specific features to better analyze models to locate problems or to prepare more accurate quotations. KeyMarkUp mold tools include draft angle analysis, thickness analysis, shrinkage calculation, static interference check and calculation of projected surfaces.
The solution can quickly open very large assembly files and nearly all of the most popular 2D and 3D CAD formats, including CATIA V4 and CATIA V5 (2D and 3D) , Pro/Engineer and Creo (2D and 3D), JT Open, I-DEAS, 3D XML, VDA-FS, SolidWorks (2D and 3D), and Siemens PLM NX.
The solution can also export various file types, including 3D PDF, STEP, IGES, DXF, DWG, JPEG, STL and 15 additional file formats. Simple screen captures of annotated views enhance communication options.
KeyMarkUp is available in two versions: Basic and Premium. KeyMarkUp Premium is full featured and contains popular file translators. KeyMarkUp Basic contains all the tools and features found in KeyMarkUp Premium, but with less file import options.
