Would it be possible to implement a new type of object
(e.g. a rectangular plane) that can be used to hold an
image / texture, which can be displayed within the
normal layers of XtrkCAD.

The image displayed does not need to be editable for
this purpose.

And when we are at it, perhaps a similar method could
be utilized to use smaller such images (textures) in
general to visually enhance the object library or
rolling stock.

Thank you,
M.Adam

    I can only support this request: It would we very welcome to be able to insert a scalable (pixel/m) background picture to work from real aerial photographs as template. Also, in this context would it be possible to include a true simple metric scale such as 1:1000?

    Thanks.

  • This would indeed be great. I could use a floorplan of my appartment as a background image.
