PIX Import for KeyCreator is a Dr. Picza (.pix) file import add-in for KeyCreator. This add-in gives KeyCreator the ability to import geometric data from PIX files.
PIX Import for KeyCreator reads surface and polygon mesh data stored in PIX files and imports it into KeyCreator. If the PIX file contains a scan of a surface PIX Import for KeyCreator creates a single trimmed surface describing the scanned surface. This surface can be converted into a solid by giving it a thickness. If the PIX file contains the scan information in the form of a polygon mesh PIX Import for KeyCreator creates a body describing the object that was scanned. A polygon mesh in a PIX file is comprised of a set of quad faces. PIX Import for KeyCreator creates trimmed planar surfaces for each quad and knits them together to create a body. If the polygon mesh is closed (i.e. it does not contain boundary edges) then PIX Import for KeyCreator will create a closed body feature, otherwise an open surface will be created.

The PIX File Format
The PIX file format is the native file format of a digitizer software called Dr. Picza which comes bundled with Roland DG digitizers. The digitizer scans an object and transfers the 3D point data to the Dr. Picza software which saves it in the PIX file format. PIX files can contain scan data in two formats: surface and polygon mesh. The surface format is used when the top surface of an object is being digitized, whereas the polygon mesh format is used when the entire surface of an object is being digitized. Back to Top
Sycode Software Licensing Terms
Our licenses are single computer licenses and are locked to each computer they are installed on. Basically, the license key is specific to the computer's Host ID (the MAC address of the computer), and will not work on another computer. The installer picks up the physical MAC address of the network card connected to the computer which is basically “Ethernet adapter Network Connect Adapter”. So unless you change your network card, the key will always work even if you reinstall your operating system. If your internal network is periodically assigning a different Host ID to your computer, then please find a solution for this with your IT department.
