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 Some of the earlier pages of this topic are now out-of-date.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.

Rail filing jigs - 3D printed

Hi all,

Another update on my end, the print was not great and tolerances were a bit iffy, but I'm fairly certain the total dimensions and such are okay. I have a revised version here that you can freely print/check and copy and give me some feedback, it would be greatly appreciated.
I have this revised version being printed as we speak and should collect it in a few days' time, then I can test with the intended Code 75 Bullhead and return with some more revisions or progress.
(this is for a 1:6 V-crossing, Code 75 Bullhead rail, both sides are now on the same block with a separate block simply to bolt together for filing)

Cheers,

James

Hi Martyn,
Please find the link below to the crude 1:6 v-crossing jig I designed. It's very basic and still in its testing phase.

I will provide updates here or in a separate thread once I have better-designed jigs. The home is to have the base design tested and printer by end of Oct so I can create those for other angles. Once done I will release the plans to Templot users :)
Cheers,

James
Hi James,
Thanks for the update and for your work on this.

Hi Martyn,
It's possible the link is invalid now, I attached a .stl file with the latest iteration in the post above. If you still want the TinkerCAD link, let me know.

Cheers,

Jame
