Libsys i3 update – cbc2di

Click to view image

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).

    Files for advanced and previous users of KitCAD i3 KGC

    cbc2di manual download – download

    Legacy support, a smaller download for KitCAD i3 KGC is available using the i3iupdate for cbc2di [discontinued]. VMRL97 and Quote javascripts are included (and no others). The download is included for KitCAD i3 KGC but may also be used to update current versions though use of KPX compression.

    The cbc2di object item changes/files are included within the current download/s of KitCADi3_KGC_rX_x86_setup.exe {KitCADi3rX_XAMPP.exe, KitCADi3rXv1.exe, KitCADi3rXv3.exe} (v1.24, 20171006). See the setup release notice for more information.

    The image above shows testing alignment with other Object items. Some distortion will be apparent when the cbc2di Object Item is rotated (suggest something like a Left and a Right version of cbc2di)

    The image above shows testing 3d rendering using KitCAD i3 KGC rX. Previous code from KitCAD 2 was recycled and then slightly modified. Files are included for all version of KitCAD.

    To get the computer drawn sizes perform the following sum, these KPD values are the Width, Depth, Height, and HeightFrom; (given Scale is 1:30 by default)

    ((( Size-mm * 6 ) / Scale) / 3)

    eg: ((( 1000mm * 6 ) / 30) / 3) = 67 pixels (result of 66.666666 is rounded up)

    Within the KPD formatted information, the following can be found:

    A web page designed to calculate the size in pixels can be found at And another web page for calculating rotations at
