Routing a Magracing track.

Post by kiklo » Tue 12. Feb 2019 18:15

Hi. I am starting testing with a new way of laying down the magline. I am having trouble getting the 'Keld metode ' consistent and good enough.

Going to route a 4mm track then 3d print a 4 X 4mm infill with the magwire within.

Altenate printing with magnetic pla and see if I can get the right tracktion.
Also thinking of printing lanechangesections with mag.pla.

I will be back with progress if any....

Routing the OSB board is a nightmare. Due to the uneven structure it is impossible to get some nice straight routing.

So instead of struggling i used a 6 mm bit and let it slip-slide, thinking it would leave a useful track of 4 mm in the middle.
It seems to work I just have to cut the worst places with an x-acto knife.
The uneven track will hold the pla-track n place.

I think you are making an easy job difficult Kim. Glue the wire down - plaster it level. Job done!

You are probably right Wes, but not everyone has a black belt in plastering.

That OSB board aint worth to use, throw it out an buy a mdf. And stop waiting time with that printing.

When i can get a good driwing 1/24 i will use my lasercutter to make the slot to the wires, it is easy to do and very precise.
