Plarail Tomy Elements

Post by bijomaru78 »

Hello

I am considering purchasing this software to help me with some Plarail Tomy designs. The site lists 22 elements as available. Would someone be able to provide a screenshot or a list of elements that are included, so I can make an informed decision about this purchase?

Thank you

Hello bijomaru78,

even better: You can just download the Express edition!

It's completely free and contains the same track libraries.

Gotta say, I'm really impressed and will be making the purchase. Even though I have yet to figure out working with gradients :)

Are you planning on adding any more elements to Plarail tracks? Those are limited by nature and you have all the shapes you need so probably would not be too difficult to add those.

I can upload photos of a couple of elements I'd love to see added.

Great job otherwise!!!

Just bought and progressing with my design. Loving the features so far, and I think I'm getting to grips with the gradients.

For reference, here are some parts I'd love to see added:

R-15 (old number) Double Crossover

R-17 (old number) Switch 3-way
Image

Split Narrow Track (unsure of code)

And the few more complicated shapes from newer catalogues:
