Z scale software
- Hello fellow z scalerz!
I have recently joined the z scale community and have not yet searched
through all the posts!
due to this and my lack of time i was wondering if anyone could give
me info on the best software for the PC to design a z scale layout,
and where i can buy/get it from! I do have autocad if that helps!
any info would be greatly appreciated!

well... that's in the eye of the user...
I use Raily 4 http://www.enigon.com/products/raily/ and I like it.
Other software is xtracad, and Wintrack and lots more. They all have
the Z-scale tracks in their inventory. Some are free of costs, other
you have to pay for, so each and any option is open for you. It really
depends on your personal preferences, including what you want to do. I
don't need the ability to simulate running trains on my software, but
this is a feature of most of the software too (including Raily 4, I
just don't use it).
As for Autocad and other CAD software, I belive you can find the
necessary librarys there too.
