One of the oldest and most popular integrated 2D drafting and 3D design system for Windows, originally from CADKEY Corporation, Marlborough, MA (www.cadkey.com). Introduced in 1984, it offered a total design solution with solids creation and built-in DXF and IGES translators. Over the years, more than 200 manufacturing systems linked to CADKEY through its CADL programming language. Its successor software has been renamed KEYCREATOR, enhanced and released in 2004 by Kubotek USA, a division of Japanese-based Kubotek Corporation, which acquired CADKEY in late 2003.
