I use a program called zround track designer. it's great.
Too bad the download site is down.

It's easy to use, but you have to install all his software incl timing software.

PM or email me with your email adress and i will send it to you.

Glad to be of help. the newer version has the corners with red and white curbing on the corners as you saw in my design.

I work in the CAD\EDA industry and have access to CAD drawing tools. There are probable free tools that will not be to hard to learn which will make drawing layouts easy. Try doing a Google search for "FREE CAD PROGRAM"

Another program that can be used is Google Sketchup. I haven't tried to create a track layout, but I know someone who has and you can even walk thru it..

I like that layout. Sorry for delayed response. Our new layout area is 70x70. Any other ideas is welcomed.

haha I am sure I could pull that up for you and give it a friendly bump. Been busy with work and getting ready for grad school so I havent been able to put together many designs of late.Hopefully after the holidays I'll be able to put a few new ones together

Anything you want it to. Regulation for 10th is 8 foot wide, regulation for 12th is 6 foot, I believe. Either way, most people scope the width of each block to whatever primary lane width they'd like to have. So, since the OP wants to fill a 90x60 with 10 foot lanes, scope the initial grid 9x6 (or 18x12 for half width).

Heck, if you wanted to, you could even scope each block to 1 foot, and spend lots of time using the tiles as details and do it foot by foot.

It's most common, though, to scope it to either full, or 1/2 lane width per block, depending on the resolution that you need and you're ability to conform your available track barriers to what you produce for a layout idea.
