Libsys i3 update – cbc2di

October 6th, 2017

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).

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.
