Re: Track for battery/radio control?

Is the technology capable of printing rails with 1:20 inclination, or would it be restricted to vertical? Hi Noel, Yes, it's possible. In fact Templot can already print templates with inclined rail, showing the foot of the rail offset a fraction from the head. Whether it is worth doing is a separate ...

Re: Trap points
