I've a sketch (and photo for reference) for a track that I'd like someone to make plans out of for me then I'll take the file and have a CNC shop do the routing on MDF. Area is 8 x 20, three lanes with 4" lane spacing.

I bet if you find a CNC wood shop that will cut your track they would also take your drawing and convert it for you.

Draw it to scale so they have solid numbers.

Someone took a stab at my sketch and this is what I have so far. Most of the racing will be 1/32 and occasionally 1/24, hence the 4" spacing for the 3 lanes. The top straight will be elevated

 

Thoughts?
