Pros
It is a great program to start working on these types of programs. And one of the most important feature is the ability of doing simple 2D drafting.
There are some outstanding features of KeyCreator like being user-friendly and creation of quick drawings.
I find that the ease in manipulating solid models is a great advantage and saves time in recreating solid models when making edits.
Cons
NO SPELL CHECK, kEYCREATOR is the only program that I know of that doesn't have spell check, engineers are notorious for being bad spellers.
The biggest problem KeyCreator has is that the industry standard in 3D modeling has gone to Solidworks which means that Kubotek needs to be able to interface with it. That appears to be a challenge.
Support is terrible updates never fix any of the core issues.

Pros

I have been making models and prototypes for over 35 years and have been using KeyCreator for over 20 years, starting with CadKey. I receive files from my clients who use a wide variety of CAD programs and I seldom have issues with translation. When I do, KeyCreator technical support will help me figure out the issue promptly. I have seen the program make leaps and bounds in ease of use over the years, from editing poor quality imported files to creating our own complex files. The Dynamic move and face handles are awesome and are used constantly in my work.

Cons

We do tons of 3D printing, which requires working with stl files. Importing and editing stl files is not a strong suit for KeyCreator, but exporting them for printing works perfectly well. Though the initial cost of KC is comparatively low, the annual maintenance is a bit frustrating, but I guess that is the cost of program up keep.

Easy to use for such a full featured package

Reviewed 3 years ago

Support has always been top notch with response times typically of a day or two at most and correspondence from point of contact is exceptional. The software has never failed to produce our designs no matter how complex the job. The software is a complex and complete 3D package with rendering and even animation capabilities and yet has one of the shortest learning curves to be proficient with that I've ever seen. We can train new users in just a few days and they are designing on their own in no time. Software updates have their occasional bugs and visual anomalies which I assume is from the smaller install base and therefore low number of testers available compared to some of the others.

Pros

Ease of use Short learning curve Large translator base built in Can easily modify features of an imported (from another software package) solid model All the features you would expect and more

Cons

Minor bugs typically make their way into new versions (wait until the patch to update)

Legacy Tool LLC

I do much of my modeling with KeyCreator and have for decades even back to Cadkey Dos. Most recently, it seems like KeyCreator has been maintaining translator for other cad systems but really not developing its own features and new technology to compete. It makes me wonder what are the goals at KC going forward?

Pros

Ease of use is a big plus. The functions aren't buried under sub menu after sub menu after pull down like other systems however I do notice other systems are getting better with that now. KC Direct modeling makes modeling quite quick.

Cons

Drawing layouts are not very robust and the rendering and associativity never gets fixed from one release or Service pack to another. the drawing layout is what communicates the model to the manufacturing department and if it isn't trustworthy, everyone involved is on edge. many times the system won't show me geometry and the only way I can get it back is to save as a junk file to be safe and then...

We use KeyCreator to help us in modeling for simulation; it helps us translate and simplify models.

Pros

KeyCreator is very versatile. If you need your model to be flexible, it can model in both 3D and wireframe.

Cons

There really isn't much I can say that is bad about this product. Larger models may have a tendency to process slowly is about it.

Pros

It's very easy to use for modeling it's features are intuitive.

Cons

It doesn't always deal with problem geometry well.
