Easement vs Smooth Flex
« on: January 09, 2019, 01:05:53 am »
I've been fine tuning a layout plan that has (in HO) 36" minimum radii on the mainlines. Entering into curves I have used easements in most places. I got in a hurry at one point and simply offset the next curve section a bit, grabbed a piece of flex, and inserted it between the straight section and curve. Then I hit "Smooth Flex" and got a nice transition, a transition that looks like a very good easement. Which brings me to my question: Is there an advantage to using the "Easement" function over the "Smooth Flex" function?
