The Product Development engineers in my company used an old program called CADKey. This software was DOS based (go figure) and. Are there any direct conversion programs avilable?. Sylvain Dugas wrote in article > Hi! > One of our suppliers has given me a set of drawing he did.

If you hear of a freeware program, let me know. I would be interested as well; my company recently merged with another. As for the reverse, Cadkey only opens DXF files, and won’t recognize them if they’re not the right version we have Cadkey I think, and AutoCad i; if you save the DXF file as one from a couple versions ago it will work.
The biggest problem we found was that Cadkey will import the AutoCAD drawing entirely as white lines, which as you can imagine can be frustrating to vonvert to see against its standard white background I would really appreciate it if someone would explain to me the main differences between the two!
The reason for my original post was that I had a potential client if I could find a good file converter. I don’t have a paying job that even makes me want to start learning another CAD program I found this by accident. I work for an aerospace company in Connecticut and am considering either switching from Cadkey to another software or staying with Cadkey and upgrading to Version 20 Workshop CADKEY users state that v20 products are slower than prior releases and unusable, missing many convwrt the key routines that failed to update from prior versions.
The company is also supposed to be working on a CADL converter for update of the many libraries of customized functions that exist within each user company but, just as the application is unable to properly support the update of old routines, so is it unable to provide updates.
If you chose to adopt CK20, which few users congert, your designs stand alone and can’t be shared readily with earlier version users. In short, you’ll spend a great deal of time across several file formats to find a mix that will export solids, surfaces, wireframe and detailing.

Any use of OLE will be lost. Any associative features between models and views or detailing will be lost. If CADKEY exports improve this may strengthen the link to other Convedt platforms but provides no solution for earlier product users as there is no intention to provide import improvements for any of these products.
CADKEY Corporations own developers have indicated their ignorance of these problems and their product by suggesting that the added ability to export wireframe in CK20 SAT files is the conveet for sharing data with older versions. If your current CADKEY version is getting the job done it will likely be two or more years before the newest generation will gel and provide a workable incentive for update.
