Incorrect sizing
« on: May 23, 2008, 03:00:28 pm »
Hi, I'm new to Anyrail and I have noticed that the sizing is incorrect compared to another program. I drew a plan in Anyrail and tried to repeat the same plan in Wintrack and I noticed that the 2 programs showed different sizes of the track. Which program is correct ???!!!

We try all we can to get the geometry of each piece of track correct. In many cases, we measure the real part ourselves, as the manufacturers do not always publish the correct dimensions.

Still, there might of course be mistakes in the track libraries. Could you specify which library, or even which part does not seem to be correct?

Thanks in advance!

David.

I'm using Marklin C track. In Anyrail the pieces are smaller than in Wintrack.

On another matter, I'm not sure how to setup an incline and decline in a plan. Can Anyrail show tunnel entrances and exits ?

I moved this topic to the Problem Area - hope that's OK with you.

Are all parts smaller? Or do they seem smaller on screen or when printed?

One difference might be that in AnyRail, the actual tracks (rails) are drawn, while Wintrack draws no track but the outline of the piece including its bedding. So they appear wider. Would that explain it?
