Curved Points and chairs under V's

Hi Everyone,

I have a question about a set of curved points we are making in templot that we hope to export for printing and laser cutting. In this picture you will see that there is a problem with overlapping chairs and would like to know what we are doing wrong or need to set?

Thanks in advance

Hi David,

Welcome to Templot Club. :)

You are not doing anything wrong. The 3D exports from Templot are still an extremely experimental work-in-progress, and I haven't yet got as far as doing the special chairs for switches and crossings. The only reason I have included the half-finished project in the released versions of Templot is so that users can tinker about with it and provide valuable feedback. You can read all about the project at:

https://85a.uk/templot/club/index.php?forums/plug-track.34/

The chairs done so far in the current version 233c of Templot are:

REA S1
REA LI
REA PJ

For the next release 233d I have now done REA S1J, and I will be looking at the REA switch block chairs next.

You can omit the unfinished chairs and sockets by unticking these boxes for the relevant timbers:

cheers,

Martin.
