Version 3.29.0
« on: August 23, 2009, 07:33:06 pm »
In this version, we've added Lego track! We've had more requests for that than I could ever imagine.
For now, we've only added the so called '9V' track, as it it the most common by far.

A minor issue that has been solved is when adding points to a line. A point added at either side is now always added OUTside of the current line.

Also, we've fixed a small issue in the H0 Märklin Metall library.
In the Aristocraft library, all left and right point numbers were accidentally exchanged. We've fixed that as well.

Internally, a few minor things have been improved.

Enjoy!

David.

Hi David

Will you also consider add a library for the LEGO Duplo tracks ?

The following standard pieces:
X-cross
Y-switch
bridge ramp
straight
straight with stop
curved tracks 30 degrees



See here for a movie with Duplo tracks:

Hi Martijn,

If you could provide us with the dimensions of these parts, it should be a simple thing to add it.
The product is called AnyRail, after all!

Hoi David

Ok great, I will provide these.
Which dimensions do you require ?   I can measure and also provide image scans if you want.
Should I add the information to this topic or send you an email ?
The Duplo rails are really versatile, for example the Y switch has exactly the same dimensions as the curved track.

The Duplo bridge consists of 2 different parts which together form a ramp up or down.
See:
http://www.peeron.com/inv/sets/3774-1
http://www.peeron.com/inv/parts/6392
http://www.peeron.com/inv/parts/6393

Do you want me to measure the 2 bridge parts as seperate parts or joined together as 1 ramp ?
I can of course measure the height additionally.


Looking forward of using Anyrail to prepare some new tracks and then build them!

Some cool layouts can be seen on this page:

Hi Martijn,

I don't know if the parts fit on an A4 scan, but if so, that would be best. Simply put the parts themselves on the scanner and mail us the jpg's.


A catalog page with the track part numbers would be helpful as well.

If there's any reliable source with the radius of the curved track (maybe in 'Lego' points), that would be great.

I suppose the ramp can be used to create longer bridges, so its best to have it as two separate parts.

Thanks in advance for the info!

David.

I've send you a mail with a .zip with all information (5.3MB).
Let me know if more info is required.

Hi Martijn,

I received it properly.

Can't promise much about a release date, we need to schedule it first.

Thanks again for the info.

David.
