Configure guide for the KitCAD programs.
This web page helps current and new users configure options for BDE, BCB c++ and Developers Information, ASCII CNC exports, objects and items for KitCAD. This web page is designed to aid users with configuration of KitCAD file types and with adding the KitCAD Icon to KPD file types.
I can suggest using notepad.exe or similar to refine files used as the KitCAD interface is aquard at times and may produce un-expected results.
Some users may wish to see exporting KitCAD plan view images to other Open CAD formats while others may wish consider use of KitCAD2 for re-viewing or deploy of SCADA HMI systems used in job tracking - In both of these cases users may require some configeration issues to be resolved or noted.
User configerable shape templates are supported by KitCAD2 using KP.BPL and KP2GLU32.EXE with the KPT file extensions.
A warning dialog may be displayed while running the following links along with the intended exe file.
