System and Server maintenance notice

Before 30th September 2016 – All online versions of KitCAD i3 KGC r3, KitCAD i3 KGC r5/r50, and KitCAD i3 KGC rX could fail to display uploaded KP2 files. The online versions of KitCAD i3 KGC were not effected and continue to operate as expected (get.cgi may not be permitted to obtain external web sites). Online versions after the 30th September 2016 will display uploaded KP2 files 🙂

The hosting provider has made changes (perhaps not of its own doing).
A change made by the hosting provider is to disable HTTPS access (again) and until more is known a record of change may be located at HTTPS / SSL Proxy Service/s release and update notices.

More information about the issue is being sort – and the hosting provider has been working on solving the issue for 2 days (before this posting). In other threads this problem however seems to of existed since March. It has been determined to resolve any issues by manually editing exiting or writing new coding solutions where required.

The current status of issues can be monitored at

Object Editor, for KitCAD (HTML version)

Thursday, April 7th, 2016

Click to view larger image

Image above – completed testing of Object Editor Menu, Script Editors, and i3 Builder (the former build_227_ul converter), for KitCAD (HTML version). The rewrite/recycle existing KitCAD code with rX codes will provide end-users with the ability to build i3 library file systems from a KitCAD 2 file base (or provided by Object Editor). The INF editors will not save and load because of the historic nature of the file formats (since deprecated, and no longer in use), the buttons are still provided for the historic ‘KitCADi3ie5.exe’ software application.

Because of the previous KitCAD i3 KGC versions inability to function on systems above Windows 7 (with service pack or updates) resulting in empty file saves — The rewritten Object Editor for KitCAD (this) is included after the release of KitCAD i3 KGC rX with release date of 1st May, 2016.

Deployment to off-line KitCAD i3 KGC rX windows version installs is only provided trough the Modified DCEF 3.0 interface installs (and after which is executed from the Start|Kitchen|KitCAD i3 rX|config|i3 program group). While it is possible to modify the Object Editor for online use, the Object Editor interfaces will not be uploaded as an online addition to KitCAD i3 KGC rX (or other online versions however this may change, archives are supplied if required). Deployment has been brought forward and is being rushed and as a result some bugs “do” exist.

See post Comments (Below) for more developer notes, testing, and update information.


The KitCADi3rX_i3foei.* Zip/7z Archives [1st May 2016] allow advanced users with full understanding of computers to manually install without using setup program (Any instruction given for extraction into C:\Program Files\Kitchen\KitCADi3\ should be ignored); Instruction for users interacting with Archive interfaces differ and are not provided by this document. Browser or end-user environment security restrictions may cause the Object Editors to fail or not work as desired. This KitCADi3rX_i3foei.* download requires no extra supporting interfaces to operate and may function as a standalone offline Web Page within a supporting environment: [Zip 663Kb][7z 340Kb]

After the Archive is extracted, the file of /i3foei/html5fm.html will allow a Web Browser to display the Object Editor HTML5 file manager, for KitCAD (HTML version) interface.

KitCAD i3 KGC rX KPX – RPCL 5.0; Release notice

Friday, October 31st, 2014

Click to view larger image

KitCAD i3 KGC rX with KPX {aka KitCAD i3 rX – r5se} has been released online (Released on the 31st October, with silent fixes made and released on the 15th-18th-21st-23rd November, 3rd-21st December 2014, 1st of March 2015, 14th of June 2015, 28th of November 2015, 1st May 2016, 1st-16th July 2016 and with current release on the 21st August of 2016; Unlike r30/r35/r5/r50 – the r5se version is a suitable replacement for the existing versions). Its main interface requires RPCL 5.1/5.0, RPCL 4.0/3.0 (for r35) and a PHP 5 enabled server to function or suitable browser handler. Existing KitCAD i3 KGC r5 JavaScript and online KitCAD i3 CGI interfaces are used for save/quote/3d buttons but are not required to generate data.

At this time

Online does not and will not allow end user uploading of the .txt file name extension but instead requires users to save the file with a .kp2 file name extension – before uploading (a manual work-around could be to rename file from a .txt file name extension to have a .kp2 file name extension {using right click|rename/properties}; another work-around for previous KitCAD i3 KGC users can be to re-open with KitCAD i3 KGC and save before uploading).

End users of the online version may be able to print the generation of 3D or quotes by opening the ‘framed’ display on another browser tab under specific conditions; See pages of rX_quote.html | rX_x3dom.html where upon refreshing or loading each page after KitCAD i3 KGC rX displays a ‘framed’ quote or rendering will enable the end-user to print/save/copy the generated content, printing can be achieved by right-clicking in the upper left corner of the page to display the pop-up menus – and selecting the option to Print; Offline version end-users will need to use the render or quote hypertext links to access pages after opening the built-in help document within a child window of the Modified DCEF guiclient.exe application. The plan view interface supports end user configurable Text that can be generated using JavaScript code [JavaScript example] or added manually to the page plan view by use of an enabled Web Browser.

The User generated KPX library systems are not enabled for use, a default library system is provided; Administrators or advanced end-users may use KGC rX kpx example (JavaScript version) as a guide for generating user library systems. The get.cgi and got.cgi interfaces are still accessible {from within modified guiclient*.exe versions}. Minor updates following first release may not be reflected by browsers/updaters [List of updates; and Instructions] – a re-download/install after a refresh of web browser cache may be required; Other changed customized code instructions for the online web site may not be available in downloadable offline editions.

End users can save both Complete Web Pages from supporting Web Browsers and the new_drawing.kp2 files from the web site to their device/computer; Where upon a text editor like notepad.exe can be used to edit or change the data within the text file/s, the .kp2 mime file extension is required for online and KitCAD i3 KGC Windows executable applications to open content for usage. Off-line environment and standalone environments allow non-standard environments to be supported though the use of plain text that can be saved as any mime type (txt|html) and reloaded with the Web Browser before loading though the offline non-standard environment (upon which going back online allows the download of a new_drawing.kp2 file).

When launched as an App – the Save function may be disabled by the App security setting/s which prevent the POST of data to a website by an App (if disabled – an error message is displayed with text of No data sent, as a work-around enable AirPlane/Off-line mode which can force the App into its unsupported text Save and load modes).

To achieve best results a Keyboard and Mouse pointing device are required. Smart Phones and Tablets can use Blue Tooth enabled Keyboard and Mouse pointing devices on an as-needed basis (for this situation, as reusing/viewing the output may not require use of Keyboard or Mouse pointing devices).
