© exclusively for all our mechanical design needs. It is an
extremely flexible product with loads of capability.
This product has helped us keep our price points competitive and
our engineering lean. Though our work with
Technologies Inc. we have come to realize that many of
KeyCreator users are not taking advantage of many of the
customizable features available in this software. With so
many customizable features confronting users it is easy to see why
many designers are reluctant or overwhelmed and simply leave this
product set to it's default setting.
We have taken the liberty of
developing a "design settings" package that can help new and old
users of this product to more effectively and efficiently get
there work done. What we have done is consolidate all the default
configuration files into one master "design settings" folder and
added a bunch more files for perusal. It is a free download.
What is in the "Design
Workspaces (*.wsp) - People have different monitor
sizes run at many different resolutions. We have added "ten"
new fully loaded workspaces for users to try. Find one that
fits your screen. It is a lot easier to remove icons than to
find useful icons. Feel free to remove icons you do not
need. Less is more! Put your name to the file and make
it your own!
Template Files (*.ckt) - Template files are the
default starter files for KeyCreator. They contain all sorts
of settings among these are units, colors, text settings etc.
We have four more comprehensive starter files for you. (Two new
for inches and two new for metric)
(*.kbd) - Keyboard / Accelerator keys are always
something personal to each user. Over the years we
have developed a comprehensive approach to speeding design work
along and acutely placing data into CAD files. Read our
KC Function Key page
and give them a try.
Settings - We have created a few printer configurations to
help darken some prints or put appropriate time / date or company
stamps on your prints. Get into these files using the
options command and substitute your company name in. There
is a printing toggle that lets you turn the printing stamp
features on and off.

We hope all these files will
help you better facilitate your work while enjoying the work.
That said there is no substitute for quality training.
If you find KeyCreator daunting to use or are unable to create
specific geometries than this would be a good indication that you
probably need some formal training. Read
