TRAXEDITOR plan
« on: November 29, 2019, 02:51:23 PM »
Howdy all,

I'm planning a new 2'x3' in Kato (trams) and Peco (trains).

I am clunking along using TRAXEDITOR as it seems to be the only multi-platform solution with both track types available (I have no Windows or Mac machines)

Hopefully perseverance will mean that I will eventually make something that works. I am at the moment struggling with various basics (like connecting points where I want them to connect, not the default locations, connection points going missing)

If there is easier software I'm missing (ignoring windows or Mac only solutions) do let me know. If not, stand by for a janky looking track plan!

Thanks @themadhippy - after having that little rant I also saw there track-cad-thigy is Linux native - will have to give that and SCARM a go...

Annoyingly I wanted to plan on the go (on my phone or tablet) but I'm happy to spin up a whole PC for the task

    Can recommend SCARM, very easy to use after watching the introduction videos.
