There is know doubt about it Templot is a very good program program. But it has a very steep learning curve maybe to steep for me to grasp fully but any problems in my case have to be me
I model in TT 1.120. and all the clearances i require are all there,so because this information is not easily found the program is excellent
I have made 6 curved points using templot and after a lot of effort they are well worth doing and work very well.
i have to admit i can not grasp how to make 3 tandem curved points by being able to draw point diagram sorry but i must be to thick!
But have made 2 3 way curved points a LHD and RHD actually points are 1 straight 2 curved.
I started by using templot by Altering a long curved point to the radius i required when i was happy printed out cut out and tried on track when curves were right i then placed the diagram on clean sheet of paper and then i drew the straight mainline in, and after much messing about trials and many many errors i successfully. stretched until all clearances were correct.
I then started to bulld the points but then had to adjust the length of point again to make enough clearance for 1st curve blades to move,then discovered that the blades were so short i had to hinge them.
then i had to work out the electrical side and ware the breaks should be again problems had to stretch again.
and finally i got to try loco through the points i use a fixed axle 0-8-0 if that goe's through every thing else will
Last week i got to fit the 2nd point in my lay and everything works fine
so i so wished i could have just drawn my three way points with templot and everything be perfect first time
I know i did not pay for templot but i would be willing to pay for good instructions to do things like above project from the emails above i am not alone with problems
i hope i have not bored you experts out there if i have sorry as i plainly are not
thanks all dirk
