Pre-upgrading to KGC for KitCADi3

Sunday, April 15th, 2007

The temp folder used for KitCADi3 CGI form post output has been moved to www.KitchenPages.net/tmp/

This simply means that all KitCADi3 output will be redirected to another domain (KitchenPages.net)

The move of domain corrects security issues ahead of the 2.27.19.66 version release of KitCADi3 (with KGC)

The 2.27.19.66 version release is currently being tested, written – created, and It will replace the current version of KitCADi3 later in 2007 🙂

KitCADi3 2.27.19.66 requires Firefox or Internet Explorer web browsers; (Netscape and Opera solutions will be developed at a later date)

blogged worst

A link posted by user claiming to be of “IP: 206.130.122.219 , rollingr.net” titled “Rolling Resource Freeware CAD Packages” http://www.rollingr.net/wordpress/2007/03/14/freeware-cad-packages/

The reviewer downloaded and tried several packages as follows 

  • Autodesk Design Review 2007.
  • Autodesk Design Review 2008.
  • A9Tech.
  • AllyCAD from South Africa.
  • bCAD.
  • KitCAD.
  • Solid Edge 2D from Britain.
  • TurboCAD Learning Edition.
  • WinCAD.

Blogging that the worst packages included KitCAD

—————————————–

In reply for this blog – KitCAD 1/2 was written around 1998-2001 with support to 2005 that ran on w32 i586 processors; was ported to ActiveX for faster bigger processors, and ported again this year into compatable JavaScript 3 code. 

It is an achievement to be voted worst in a list of Commercial Professional Tools.
The download version of KitCAD could always be better, along with the KitCAD ideal experience;

Feedback is welcome (send via KitchenPages.com contact link, top right corner). The KitCAD interface is upgrading every two years, on average as a result of the KitCADi3 ideal to seek 3rd party software products replacements for KitCAD1/2 interfaces or functions.

Download Version of KitCAD Includes: KitCAD1, KitCAD2, 2v5->i3.

I thank Richard for his time and comment.
