Latest Version of KeyMarkUp Multi-CAD Viewer is Released

Release date: 2/24/2014

KeyMarkUp Version 12 contains several enhancements to improve the user experience and increases the number of file formats supported to nearly 3 dozen.

MARLBOROUGH, Mass.— The newest version of KeyMarkUp Multi-CAD Viewer has been officially released from Kubotek USA.  KeyMarkUp Multi-CAD Viewer gives users the ability to view almost 3 dozen file formats.  It also aids in estimating, quoting, collaboration and communication – no CAD software required.  KeyMarkUp Version 12 contains several enhancements to improve the user experience.

KeyMarkUp adds to its suite of multi-CAD viewing/export capabilities by adding a brand new add-on module for the JT file type.  JT is a compact ISO-standardized, neutral data format.  It is often used in application processes after geometry creation.   Other improvements include the update of file importers, the import of CADDS 3D files, and improved CGM Export, especially for technical documentation.  KeyMarkUp can quickly open very large assembly files and nearly all of the most popular 2D and 3D CAD formats including CATIA V4 & CATIA V5 (2D and 3D) , Pro/Engineer & Creo (2D & 3D) , JT Open, I-DEAS, 3D XML, VDA-FS,  SolidWorks (2D & 3D), Siemens PLM NX.  In all, 34 file formats can be viewed using KeyMarkUp.

The quick open option which gives users a fast way to open large assembly file is now combined with the precise open option.  This means users will not have to sacrifice detail in lieu of speed.   The structure-tree has also been enhanced to display meta-data and other important file information.  In all, the improvements to KeyMarkUp make it a valuable, go-to alternative for any company who needs to view CAD files, large assemblies or other 3D information without the burden of multiple viewing packages or additional CAD software licensing. 

Matt Carr, VP Sales & Support at Kubotek USA states, “with even more supported file types, KeyMarkUp gives engineers a very powerful method to measure, analyze, annotate, print and export CAD data for better communication, collaboration and more accurate quoting.  Optional exporting and mold and die modules, and an easy-to-use interface means KeyMarkUp can provide superior functionality and value to anyone who wants to view and communicate CAD data.”
