Not cluttering up this thread at all. One (main) reason for creating the new web page front end was so I could start to think about other ideas.
Now the turntable, yes it can go round 360 degrees if you want. One reason I have developed what I describe as a 'small turntable'. Will have to double check how much I have made available(again easier to see for me via my website).
Secondly sub code 100 rail. The problem(more a limitation) of 3D printed is minimum thicknesses of plastic. This is around about point 8mm, which sounds pretty small, until you look at actual height of rail. Code 100 is 2.5mm high(I assume 1/100th inch), so code 75 is about point 6mm lower. To retain the plastic to hold the rail in place, the amount of rail above is getting pretty close to zero, especially when you include the lumpiness of WSF. Without the 'stone setts' on top the height is reduced by point 5mm, so plain flat track is possible. It is something I have and am now considering. Now code 60 rail has a height of 1.5mm, so that only leaves point 7mm of rail to run on. That might be possible. Not sure how 'finescale' Z gauge wheels are, or what back to backs generally are. Luckily I am only thinking of flat surface for smaller gauges and scales. I have some code 60 rail. The base is obvious much narrower, so would also have to look at that. Code 75 seems to be happy with the width of slot for code 100. It is just the height that in some cases may cause running problems.
One thing I wanted was mixed gauge track, hence standardising on code 100 rail. So much to develop, and it needed some clearly defined project boundaries, otherwise it would have got totally out of control. It nearly did , but the new website has cleared the air a lot. I may not be running it as professionally as I should, but the website actually documents development, so no need for big development plans. Also I prefer to play with ideas and only go with them when they actually work.
Now I am working on something that might suit those wanting to use thinner rail. I have just totally revised my early inserts. check website, so insets include a base and clip around points. This is less than 24 hours old, but last night I designed what I hope might be a flexible insert for flexi track based on same system. Fingers still crossed as I have not had a print yet.
This has a direct impact on ability to print something for finer scale track. The inserts for code 100 have enough thickness to be reduced , certainly for code 75. I will be looking at other track as well. What makes this possible is the strength and flexibility of the WSF plastic. It simply would not work for harder more detailed plastics.
I was about to post something about this anyway. It has only been possible because the new website has made it easier to organise. 2 years of playing around and I now am much more confident about what will and what won't work.
One thing, everyone, please don't ask why I can't do this or that point. I am starting to look at other pointwork (Peco) . In some ways easier than the Setrack as the templates are online, and I now know what I need to include. So if anyone asks, I should be able to do something for finer rail, but this time I will be doing it as part of code 100 version development. For the moment I am putting full panel design to one side(although there is still some for for G1 and G gauge to do, but that is code 200 rail).
Covering up the visible part of the sleepers is still an issue. One way might be the ideas Michael Mott has used here. I am experimenting with thin tissue paper.
Narrow gauge Francophile interested in 1m, 60cm,50cm , 40cm and smaller gauges . Build in scales from 1/6th to 1/24th. Also 1/32nd and 1/35th using 16.5mm track to represent 50cm and 60cm gauges. http://www.rue-d-etropal.com
