Re: CAD Program for Electrical Schematics

I have been looking for a good CAD program too and took the advice of earlier posters and tried Visio out.

The attached wiring diagram took me about 1.5 hours to draw. Keep in mind that I never used Visio before this.

It has a lot of cool options. I think Visio is a keeper.


PS This diagram is just something I thru together, not the actual boat. No need to go on about how many electrical codes I broke.

Re: CAD Program for Electrical Schematics

Nice work guys... Knotty especially. I use VW for work and did schematics with it. But it's not cheap... no way what ACAD costs. The Visio works looks excellent. Once you start using CAD you'll find it very useful for many things.
