CADKEY, INC BREAKS THE $1,000 PRICE BARRIER FOR INDUSTRIAL STRENGTH ENGINEERING CAD

 WINDSOR, CT, July 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Breakthrough pricing for professional computer-assisted design (CAD) software on personal computers was established today with the announcement by Cadkey, Inc. that its new CADKEY(R) DRAFTER will sell at $995 U.S., approximately one-third the cost of comparable CAD drafting products for designers and engineers.
 "While other software is being reduced to commodity pricing, mechanical designers and engineers continue to be charged premiums for the programs they need in their work," Malcolm Davies, president and chief executive officer of Cadkey, said. "Traditional pricing is impeding the adoption of CAD design in professional environments. Cadkey is committed to providing full-featured industrial software at a commercial price. CADKEY DRAFTER sets a new price/performance standard for the industry.
 "Price is one of our key advantages, but the DRAFTER's ease of operation is equally important to the market," Dr. Davies added. "CADKEY DRAFTER is developed from CADKEY 6, probably the easiest to learn CAD system in the industry. With some comparable products it may take weeks or months of training before the user becomes proficient.
 "We offer designers an attractive alternative to products from our larger competitors, which often are priced beyond the means of design professionals, " Dr. Davies said. "With DRAFTER they can add seats to their drafting operations while keeping their costs under control."
 The DRAFTER is fully compatible with Cadkey's entire mechanical product line, incorporates DWG(TM) and DXF translators to AutoCad(R) and has full compatibility with many other CAD systems. It operates on 386/486 DOS platforms or as a full screen DOS application under Microsoft Windows and OS/2.
 The new CADKEY DRAFTER has an advanced drafting module with geometric tolerancing, dual dimensioning, welding symbols, datums, general dimensioning symbols, center and section lines, balloon notes, and libraries for electrical, sheet metal, piping, fluid power and flow chart symbols -- features included in competitive drafting software priced at approximately $3,750.
 The CADKEY DRAFTER is available now through authorized dealers or directly from Cadkey by calling 1-800-223-5391. The company will provide users free technical support by telephone.
 Cadkey, Inc., a privately-owned company headquartered in Windsor, Conn., develops, manufactures, markets and supports productivity- enhancing CAD analysis and manufacturing products. The company, which has offices in Europe and the Pacific Rim, has developed some of the world's most widely accepted mechanical engineering software programs, with more than 110,000 installations in a dozen languages.
