KP Import for KeyCreator is a SketchUp SKP file import add-in for KeyCreator. It gives KeyCreator the ability to import objects from SketchUp SKP files as solids models in KeyCreator.
SKP Import for KeyCreator reads polygon mesh data stored in SKP files and imports it into KeyCreator. A polygon mesh in a SKP file is comprised of a set of triangular faces. SKP Import for KeyCreator creates trimmed planar surfaces for each triangle/quad and knits them together to create a body. If the polygon mesh is closed (i.e. it does not contain boundary edges) then SKP Import for KeyCreator will create a closed body feature, otherwise an open surface will be created.
SKP Import for KeyCreator is designed to be extremely user friendly and easy to understand. Once installed, it must be loaded into the KeyCreator environment. To load the add-in follow the simple instructions in the ReadMe file. Once loaded it adds new commands to KeyCreator. It also adds a new submenu called "SKP Import for KeyCreator" to the KeyCreator's "Add-Ins" menu containing these commands.

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.
