Monorail Track Points - Damien Roux - 2015-09-01

Hi there,

I'm planning to render the Unitron sets.

Appart form stickers that I can create, the only parts missing are the two Monorail Track Points

2890 - Monorail Track Point Left
2889 - Monorail Track Point Right

I know the parts are quite complexe but I would love if someone could author them.
Thanks a lot.

No volonteer?


Re: Monorail Track Points - Philippe Hurbain - 2015-09-05

Very complex, and don't have the part...

Don't know if it'll help anyone, but I found some pictures of the inside structure here and here
Who is whoward69?
To me, it looks like he might have been working on these points, but the pictures are uploaded ten years ago.

Whoward69 = William Howard [WilliamH]
I think he's worked on other train parts as well.

Yes, William did a lot of research on the monorail points and was an active author at one time. Thanks for re-location those photos. The internal wheel (2884) and 'shover' (2991) are already in the official library.


Re: Monorail Track Points - Magnus Forsberg - 2015-09-07

Didn't know that. Actually, I can find four parts.

2884.dat, ~Monorail Points Inner Wheel
2890.dat, ~Monorail Points Rack Shover
2883.dat, ~Monorail Points Shover
2911.dat, ~Monorail Track Points Interior Shover


Re: Monorail Track Points - Chris Dee - 2015-09-07

Oh, yes. It looks like they need standardised naming - I suggest Monorail Track Points ...


Re: Monorail Track Points - Damien Roux - 2015-09-07

Thats a good suggestion.

I would love to continue his work but I don't own the parts. I will maybe try to do something based on to the pictures.
But if someone is ready to work on that part, please do it!
