KitCAD i3 KGC rX lt

October 14th, 2016

Uploaded and Released KitCAD i3 KGC rX lt; a version without the need of PHP or CGI/PL files to reload or save KP2 files. Files are saved and reloaded by end-user text copy/paste methods where upon the end-user is responsible for storage of information within a end-user managed filing format of their choosing (such as an open office writer document or simple text file).

To access downloads, see comment/s.

The only difference from other versions of rX is that the lt version (The initials of ‘lt‘ being a shortened reference of the word light) has the following code block inserted at start of the _r5en.js file to alter the interface as required.

The code above exploits the rX interface features and alters the display to suit the required experience (text only save and loading of KP2 files for example). The features exploited are Online/Offline mode detection, and protocol file: detection. The end-user interaction is set to generate and reload text-only KP2 files by default and upon use of features that require online and protocol http: are given temporary values which allow their function to run to completion (as rX versions and without being in ‘lt’ text-only mode).

System and Server maintenance notice

September 29th, 2016

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

KitCAD i3 KGC rX {release notice} supports HashTag commands when entered into the Web Browser Address bar as a hash fragment identifier. All HashTag commands are in English to match javascript values.

At this time – There will be no support included for multi-language Hashtag command/s until a future update for the language support files is provided. Other character sets should be translated into English HashTag command equivalent when required. This post may be altered to suit any changes at a later date.

The help page for the supported Address bar Hash fragment Hashtag commands has been uploaded and is included within the help system of KitCAD i3 KGC rX (online).
