Transition of a track from level to ramp


 Share

Recommended Posts

I am trying to build a layout with a track starting on a level base and then going up an incline. The problem I have is that the track disappears into the incline. Is there a technique to over come this or is there a flexible track that bends upwards or downwards?

Hello Bev Thompson,

unfortunately not.
The preferred way seems to be to add a few short pieces together and increase the incline a fraction each time.
A change of 0.5 degrees per section seems to work well.

if by this you mean that half the track disappears underground, you probably rotate it by using the gismo in the center of the piece.
In Version 6 of the studio, you can select a light blue triangle at either end of a track. After selecting it, you're presented with a gismo at the end which allows you to drag and rotate this end. Use the dark blue Z axis to raise one end without lowering the other.

Hope that helps?
