Libsys i3 update – cbc2di

Friday, October 6th, 2017

Added a new Object item titled cbc2di as an example corner base cabinet Object Item, into the KitCAD library system (for all versions where required). Some cabinet makers can stockpile such corner Object items or order prefabricated and use when they are required – as such there is no cutting list (two infills may be listed) and the default size is 900Wx600D X 900Wx600D. The default size should NOT be altered as for such cases will require another Object Item to be coded by the end user. Limited testing was performed at 900Wx600D X 900Wx600D and minor corrections may still be required. Some older Object Item code from the CnrBC2di Object item was recycled and modified to suit.

The example titled cbc2di was modeled from the former CnrBC2di which was created from BC2di. The example library system is not a correct representation but is instead used to teach and test function of KitCAD2, KitCAD i3 KGC and above.

The image above shows testing of the KPD format whist using KitCAD i3 KGC rX – the image shows: Red line as Rotation, Blue box/line for an Object Item, and Green box/line is a KPD Fixed Item (and used to code cbc2di).

Image above – completed testing of CutUp Machine-It, for KitCAD. Less then two days to write/recycle existing rX codes, and some 10 days of minor alterations to provide more ability and functional uses. Processing now consumes around 10 seconds for 230 lines. The processed data from this point can be further altered to suit manufacturing processes and provide an ability for custom changes (eg: door gaps, the door sizes may not include gaps). A solution in the form of filtering selection while processing to alter the filtered (eg: door) sizes inclusive of end-user supplied size (eg: sum of door gaps total could be expressed as a negative number and entered for the filtered size addition) is included to allow instant review and provide an ability for end-users to make changes on-the-go without having to edit Object Items, edit Volume values or edit processing templates.

Minor revision, help file (2Apr), and SDK information [PDF] (24Apr); The ‘DrillDown Machine-It‘ interface will reuse or be the same as the CutUp Machine-It code base and parts of the interface and is not included, read comments upon this post for more information in regards to Drill down and Processed Result/s Optimisation.

CutUp Machine-It, for KitCAD deployment to off-line KitCAD i3 KGC rX version installs and others occurred between April and May 2016. The May 1st is the Public release date however versions for all or some of the various target systems were released beforehand.

See post Comments (Below) for End-user help, developer notes, testing, and update information.

The 17th May 2014 upgrade for KitCAD i3 KGC r30/r35, and KitCAD i3 KGC r5/r50 versions which MUST be installed/reinstalled after KitCADi3_xampp_localhost.zip/KitCADi3_wampp_localhost.zip, and can be found online at: r5/r50 2014 update release notice. The 27th July 2014 upgrade for KitCAD i3 KGC r30/r35, and KitCAD i3 KGC r5/r50 versions which MUST be installed/reinstalled after KGC_RPCL_3-5_5-0_XAMPP_Upgrade_Setup_2014.* can be found online at: r5/r50 2014_pt2 update release notice.

NOTE: Do not install KitCADi3_xampp_localhost.zip / KitCADi3_wampp_localhost.zip as existing KitCAD i3 KGC r30/r35, and KitCAD i3 KGC r5/r50 versions will fail to function afterwards (eg: no new object items will be drawn on plan; but kp2 files can be reloaded/viewed). If required, then re-install KitCAD i3 KGC r30/r35, and KitCAD i3 KGC r5/r50 versions (or backup and then restore the .htaccess file of /htdocs/library/i3).

The RadPHP XE, and HTML5 Builder Source RPCL files of KitCAD i3 KGC are not updated.

KitCAD users and some Web Browsers will need to clear Web Browser cache so that the updated files will be re-downloaded.
