3D model description

You will find in this set no less than 14 elements, mainly switches, compatible with the rails sold by Ikea, Brio and many others. You will make your tracks much more fun.

The assembly is extremely simple: https://youtu.be/_VRkNqK6l-o

For double curve switches, there are two categories:
The symmetrical, flat bottom: for each switche, you will have to print 1 "Upper arm.stl" and 1 "Lower closing part.stl", which are in the same directory.
Asymmetrical, reversible: for each switche, you will have to print 1 "Upper arm.stl" and 1 "Lower arm.stl", which are in the same directory.

For triple curve switches:
for each switche, you will have to print 3 "Upper arm.stl" and 3 "Lower closing part.stl", which are in the same directory.
Be careful, the triple curves have a fairly small radius of curvature. Slightly long wagons and locomotives or with axles with low lateral leeway may encounter some difficulty in passing them.

IMPORTANT: The files you purchase (or download for free) are sold under Copyright (or distributed under licence). This means that they cannot be sold or distributed for free. Additionally, you cannot sell prints made from these files. If you did, you would jeopardize the creation of new designs. Thank you for your understanding.


3D printing settings

No particular difficulty in printing. Two switches have built-in supports that can be easily removed. No need to add any, for any other model.

Printing is done in 0.28mm, with 10% infill, and a speed of 60mm / s (70mm / s for infill, 40mm / s for outer walls).

Indicative printing times:
double curve switche: 1h40
mini crossing: 40 min
mini curved rail: 40 min
triple switche: 2h30
