Start your first projectGo to 'My Projects' menu under 'My Trax' and click on the option 'New Project'. Enter a project name in the field 'Project name' and a description - you can change all this later.
To finish click 'Save'.
Design your layoutAfter saving , you end up in the list - which now only shows your first project. Right from your project name, you will see four icons . The first is a pencil, click it to go to the TRAX Editor. In the TRAX editor you will see a grid and a menu bar at the top.
We now have to pick a track library. Click on the 'Track'-tab. In the library group, click on the pencil. You will see a list of available libraries. Select one or more and click the submit button. On the left you now see the track menu.
From the track menu, choose a piece of track. A red box indicates that this is now the selected track piece. Now double-click anywhere on the grid. The rail section that you have selected is now drawn in the editor. On both ends you will see a little dots: one blue and one red dot. The red dot is the selected track end. When you double click it, a new piece of track is now connected.
By grabbing these dots you can easily drag a section of track. Drop it on a dot at the end of another section to connect both sections.
Obviously there is a lot more possible, but you now know the basics. In the menu bar you will find a help button . Click it to read about the many other possibilities of TRAX.
If you more visual oriented, there is a video that helps you to get started:
