Track plan done on Xtrackcad transfer to a control panel
« on: December 07, 2017, 03:08:28 pm »
I would like to transfer my track plan onto a control panel, but the only adhesive tape to show track layout that I can find is 3.1 mm or 1/8" Scotch tape in various colours. I have had it in blue for such a long time it may even not be usable when I take it out of it's packet !!

Is there even a slim possibility someone makes realistic track looking adhesive tape which I could use instead?  1/8" is ideal for what I want?

Regards
Arthur Hodgett

Arthur,
Is this any use to you. A video from Mike Fifer on how he makes his panels.
Cheers Dennis.

A quick Google will find many self-adhesive, A4, laser-printable sheets. Some glossy, some matt. You could print directly onto those and then use as they are or stick on and then cover with sticky-back plastic.

There is also a "press'n'peel" laser printable mask for etching PCBs. I wonder if that could be used to mask and etch aluminium sheet?
