    UK station platform

    Hi BahnLand I have tried your suggestion no.2 and it worked very well Many thanks Bev Thompson
  2. I have created a section of UK platform as a road.This allows me to snap sections together and curve adjacent to track. All this is ok but I want to bend a section down to create a ramp. The problem is that the result has a gap in the top surface (see Picture) Any suggestions to remove the gap. Thanks Bev Thompson

    uv mapping

    Hi BahnLand Many thanks for your help. Finally ,after several weeks work, I have produced a model of a British rail Mark3 carriage with bogies correctly allinged to the track. With the zip file you sent, I realised that to use the correct 'mm' setting for Sketchup, to use materials from jpegs and not the materials inside Sketchup , to label the groups correctly and to use the correct x exporter. Many thanks Bev Thompson

    uv mapping

    Hi BahnLand I have reverted to using Sketchup. I have created a Carriage body with the required projections and I have created a Bogie but I have come back to my problem of getting 2 bogies to follow the track. What is the correct way of labeling the bogies with _WheelSet0 and _WheelSet1? Regards Bev Thompson

    Hi Max I have continued my experimenting and I have found that I forgot to tick the 'Textured Solid' box in 'Shading' It now works. Many thanks Bev Thompson

    uv mapping

    Hi BahnLand I am trying to project the picture of the side of a carriage onto the shaped side of my model. I am using the 'projected image' method as suggested in a tutorial by a Sketchup user. This works ok until I export to x file when the image is saved is not to the 2^x standard. Regards Bev Thompson

    uv mapping

    Hi Max I have followed you instructions and I can see the image projected on the blender render screen but it is not seen after importing the x file. I am using the x file exporter as includer in Blender 2.79. Am I using the wrong exporter? Regards Bev Thompson

    uv mapping

    I am trying to create a model with a uv material mapped I have tried Sketchup but the method creates a new image that contravenes the 2x2 rule Sketchup will upload a colour ok. I have tried Blender but I am having a problem with exporting an x file with a uv mapped side. I have tried Wings 3d but I cannot import the x file into 3D Train.(it reports unsupported file format) but again I can import a straight coloured x file. Can anyone help Regards Bev Thompson

    Problem with Bogie following track

    Thank you for your reply. I must admit that I am on the steep learning curve with Blender. I have used Sketchup for a number of years and would prefer to use it. Have you any hints on how to achieve the same results as in Blender. Regards Bev Thompson

    Problem with Bogie following track

    I have tried this but the same thing happens (see image)
  12. I am trying to create a carriage with Blender. The problem I am having is to get the bogie to swivel with the track curve. The pair of bogies follow the curve but not the individual bogies. Can anyone help

    Tutorial to enter new model

    Hi Phil In reply to your query, I think one way to solve your problems is to create a series of elongated cubes. The cubes have the same location and each contain a different message.The cubes will be contained in one slightly larger cube that acts as the case. An animation is then produced pulling each message cube forward to show message and then return. Regards Bev Sign.zip

    Hi Easy Many thanks for your help. I am not used to using Blender- I have always used Sketchup before. I regret that at my age(74) my rate of learning is very slow ,but I get there in the end Regards Bev
