KeySIGN is an AutoCAD add-on for creating road signs in a simple-to-learn design suite.
Using fully compliant transport fonts and symbols, your designs will be automatically drawn to industry standards. The layouts can then be fine tuned to ensure they are both readable and aesthetically pleasing.
KeySIGN offers the complete package, by encompassing automatic sign routines, and being able to build complex map type layouts.
KeySIGN enables us to produce drawings for large contracts as it links seamlessly with drawing production.
How KeySIGN helps Gateshead Council save time on all schemes requiring signage.
Fully Featured Design Tools
Alongside KeySIGN, professional CAD based design enables complete flexibility to design map type signs for ANY road layout. KeySIGN extends familiar CAD techniques so that designers can easily learn sign design tools.
One-Stop-Shop for Signing Scheme Design
KeySIGN provides for the holistic approach to sign and sign routing designs. Ordnance Survey mapping can easily be brought into the CAD environment to show in detail the proposed location for each sign to enable designers to think 'Signing System.' Full coloured signs can be shown easily on the location plan.
KeySIGN - the Choice of the Professionals
KeySIGN continues to be used by the DfT for the preparation of the Traffic Signs Regulations and General Directions, and Chapters of the Traffic Signs Manual; and is also used by the Welsh Assembly Government in preparation of the sign design rules for bilingual signs.
Design to Manufacture and Installation
KeySIGN provides the means for manufacturers to automate the cutting of sign face material; provides routines for ensuring suitable cut lines are chosen on plank constructions and with the new KeyPOST add-on, provides options for the designer to analyse the structural post and foundation requirements of the final installations on-site.
Automatic Sign Design
Dialog based entry overcomes long standing difficulties with combining Standard Signs in millimetres and Supplementary Plates in the stroke width design unit speeding up the design process.
Roundtrip to KeyPOST
KeySIGN face designs with extended properties can be exported to KeyPOST. The process to produce a post and foundation design operates as a seamless roundtrip. The roundtrip manages all steps in the design process, reducing the need for detailed knowledge of the menus and other more complex options. The results of the design can then easily be shown on the sign face design drawing. See the KeyPOST page for more information.
