I had a question in my pm box, i decided to post the answer in the open to avoid some disappointments for others.
I hope i will not create any harsh/hard feelings i am only meaning good and i am willing to share, so all can benefit!
I would love to share all my files to how ever would like it, BUT
For now there are stl files only, for cnc machinery you need to convert those files yourself
in the near future i will buy a cnc myself, again the files i am willing to share, BUT
I am only going to machine the frogs and not the whole turnout.
the frogs will have no number, cous i the EU we don’t work with frog numbers, we create frogs as needed as per wish(or cast)
In the eu you will find probably some "standard/off shelf frogs in country’s like Germany France and Poland, Spain i am not sure.
For the rest: especially in my country we have the most dense and populated railroad system in the world, incl houses on a squire mile.
my simple turnouts will be larger then 1:9 up to 1:24( 1meter 40 to three meters in length)(the 5 way, siccor crossover, the triple 3 way’s, normal turnouts ect where just “exercise/warm up” for me)
i am going to make from now on only the frogs with a cnc and the sleepers/ties with “normal” (not average Joe) woodworking machines.
Designs - Thingiverse
All is printed in abs btw, uv resistant—> suited for aluminium strip 2mm by 10 mm!
I use the most underestimate and most versatile program there is, —3d builder— from windows itself…for free.
I really would like to share so we all can benefit, but i am affriad you will get disappointing, you can not chance a frog easy, make it smaller or bigger, change the deriving angle ect, you will fail, plus i use prototypical dimensions, between my flange and railhead i have 0.5mm clearance/tolerance, sorry lgb ect will not run on my turnouts or other.
Learn how to 3d print and learn how to design, learn how frog and other components work, it is quite a diet, i promise, but the reward is beyond what you have now or thought you wanted.
If you wanted a layout below 400 meters it is not worth the effort.
You really want something prototypical, do it, master the program Templot!!!
Want more then 400 meters layout or some difficult switches ect, do it(i use a combo with azobe wood ties/sleepers with ABS uv resistant)…what are you waiting for!
Want to be commercial…forget it, to time consuming to make 1 simple turnout…Not including 2 years learning (engineering level (road and railroad engineer)) and 35 years experienced in wood working
Commercial can be done on mra1 and you need also prototypical products and a investment of 50.000 of woodworking machinery and a cnc, plus some serious woodworking experience and a certain degree in railroad knowledge, it is not simply copy and past and adapt
This "statement"is not to brag, but what i did to get on this level to get what I WANT and what I would like to achieve.
Yes i learned a thing or two for myself and i am a contractor for 20 years now.
With best regards Igor
Thanks Karl, we will see you in real life, i owe you a beer, thanks and cheers
