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).
