NEXT ZOOM MEETING - The next Templot Club Zoom meeting will be on Wednesday 8th February 2023 at 8pm UK time. All welcome.

  • The Plug Track functions are experimental and still being developed. Some of the earlier pages of this topic are now out-of-date.

    For an updated overview of this project see this post.   For some practical modelling aspects of using Plug Track see The Book of Plug Track.

    The assumption is that you have your own machines on which to experiment, or helpful friends with machines. Please do not send Templot files to commercial laser cutting or 3D printing firms while this project is still experimental, because the results are unpredictable and possibly wasteful.

    Some pages of this and other topics include contributions from members who are creating and posting their own CAD designs for 3D printing and laser-cutting. Do not confuse them with Templot's own exported CAD files.

    T1 files

    This topic will contain my latest open-source code files derived from Templot2. I'm calling these Templot1 (T1) files to avoid confusion with the previously released T3 Lazarus files. These files are from Delphi5. They will need conversion for use in Lazarus. First a couple of small units...
