SCARM Video Tutorials – Part 9 – Create a Ramp (Slope)

This is the tutorial movie #9 of a series of videos about working with SCARM, created and narrated by Ruud Boer.

Please note that Ruud by mistake numbered this tutorial as #7 in the narration and the clip title, but it is actually #9 in the series. Note also that he is talking in meters about the height levels, as he is using a specially designed custom library where 10mm in SCARM are equal to 1m in EEP simulation software.

You can switch to full-screen mode by clicking on bottom right icon in the embedded player.

Once again, thanks to Ruud, for creating these SCARM video tutorial series :)

  1. Great videos, very easy to understand.

    I am retired from Amadeus (data center in Erding, Germany). I love my time working in Germany, France and UK.

    Thanks again for the great info on SCARM.

    Regards, Dennis

  2. Is there a way to convert a layout configured in one track to another?
    Marklin to Atlas?

  3. Denis

    the video 9 does not exist i saw video 7 not video 9

  4. I want to thank all of the very intelligent and resource people who created this amazing software. This is a true example of the state of the world now. I am 85 and I “grew up” with horribly complicated and expensive CAD. Kudos to you all and thank you.

  5. Too bad turnouts cannot be sloped. Or can thay? Didnt found a way to it yet. Had to revert to another software, because I have turnouts in my ramps. Would love to see that feature in SCARM.

  6. My eyesight is not that crash hot and I was unable to see what track section was made for tutorial 9? I have looked at the Atlas and Marklin but cannot seem to find a match.

    Sorry for the silly question but it is hard for me to see in the video.



  7. Hello Darren,

    Ruud is using a custom-made library for that tutorial, but you can use any straight and curved pieces from any SCARM library if you want to reproduce the actions in the tutorial.

  8. In the video, it talked about the track heights in millimeters. I need to work in inches. Is there a way to verify if you are working in inches? I am working in N scale using Kato track and want to create a 2% grade.
    The video answered a lot of my questions, but just not the one on the inches.

  9. Hello Dave,
    You can check the current measurement unit in the upper left corner of the drawing area:

    To change it, just click on the label or go to “Tools” > “Settings” > “Dimensions” and set the measuring units between “mm” (millimetres) and “in” (inches).
