|Templot startup: Printing a single curved turnout template|
This short Templot screen video above shows you how to:
1. change to your required gauge and scale.
2. adjust the size of a turnout with the mouse (press the F5 key).
3. adjust the curving radius in the outer track (press the F6 key).
The resulting radius in the inner track is displayed in the information panel, and flashes red if it is smaller than your specified minimum. When you have obtained your required turnout size, the template is easily printed out.
If it doesn't quite fit the intended layout site, it is easy to come back to Templot, adjust it slightly, and print another one.
Here is the printed result from the video. Just trim the pages to the red lines, stick them down and start building:
This is just the beginning of Templot. You can go on to link templates on-screen and create complex formations to build a complete layout track plan. And then print it out to any size.
For other Templot screen videos, see the Templot Companion web pages and click-guide tutorials.
