Hi, I am a new user of templot, trying to produce a trackplan for a friend of mine.I am struggling with the precision of turnouts, among other things.
I need a short turnout with a shallow angle between the two.
I guess it would be a Y or V shape.
That is the best I can describe I'm afraid

Hi Peter,

Welcome to Templot Club. :)

Your description is a bit difficult to follow.

In general, short turnouts have steeper/sharper V-crossing angles, turnouts with shallow/flatter V-crossing angles are longer.

Here are two turnouts to illustrate that:



The top one has a 1:4 V-crossing. The bottom one has a 1:10 V-crossing.

The easy way to change between these and other sizes in-between is to use the F5 mouse action.

If you could post a screenshot or sketch showing what you are trying to achieve, it will be easier to provide a better answer.

regards,

Martin.

"In general, short turnouts have steeper/sharper V-crossing angles"

But the pointy bit is sharper on the bottom one :?

In this context, "sharp" means the opposite of gentle, as in a "a sharp curve", not sharp as in a knife edge.

The angle is acute (not to be confused with "a cute angle").
Oh dear. I think I'm being obtuse.
