RCS TRxxx missing

Post by mfjord02 »

Hi,

I can't find the TR35, TR40, TR45, TR435, TR440, or TR445 pieces in the Ross Custom Switches library. Links below.

http://rossswitches.com/35centerreturnf ... 4-way.aspx
http://rossswitches.com/40centerreturnf ... 4-way.aspx
http://rossswitches.com/45centerreturnf ... 4-way.aspx
http://rossswitches.com/35centerreturnfor4or3-way.aspx
http://rossswitches.com/40centerreturnfor4or3-way.aspx

I've emailed RCS about providing the templates for these pieces as I don't see them on the website. I'll follow up when they respond.

Can they be added in a future update?

Thanks!

I corresponded with Steve at RCS via email and he said that they do not have templates for these pieces. However, he explained that each piece is made up of a partial 096 curve with straights on each end to provide the correct center-to-center distance. Would it be possible to add these pieces based on that information?

Thanks!

Hi there,

the latest update 6.3.5 includes an updated Ross Custom Switches library with the transition tracks (TR35, TR40, TR45, TR435, TR440, TR445) added:
