Quote from: David on October 04, 2012, 03:58:23 pmNow that we have user defined objects (I call them Udo's) in version 5 of AnyRail, this board is probably not very relevant anymore.I suggest that we gradually turn the items that are here into Udo's. Of course I want to make sure that the original publishers are OK with that.What do you think?David.
Quote from: glakedylan on February 17, 2013, 06:47:14 pmgreetings Hoiiipthe best way is if you have the actual kit, using the diagram on the box as a footprint of the size, shape, and layout of that footprint using settings in AR that will allow you to construct a shape in the actual size.if you do not have the kit, the dimensions of the footprint are listed at the Walthers site. You can use that info to make an image that shares a like footprint.Hope this helps.SincerelyGary L Lake Dillensnyder
Quote from: RhB_HJ on February 18, 2013, 05:19:55 pmThere are several ways to do things.Two years ago, when AR was still new to me , I used this method.In the meantime I refined it slightly; whenever possible I look for a footprint drawing either on the Internet or in a catalogue. On the Internet I just grab that graphic - sometimes I have to use "Print Screen" - and import to COREL. From the catalogues I scan whichever and massage it COREL.If you can't find a footprint, you can either use the measurements the mfg provides and imagineer it from there. Or you can use those measurements to create a "Surface" and then insert a picture of the item. There are a lot of mfgs who provide very skimpy information, I contacted some of them to get better info, but they don't seem to be interested.
