Circuit Diagrams

Postby wm1995 » Fri Jun 25, 2010 6:53 pm

Does anyone find it takes them a long time to draw circuit diagrams for physics/electronics (as in significantly longer than the rest of the class)? I recently had to draw a circuit diagram including six seven segment displays, six 4511s and six 4024s, to say nothing of the astables, monostables and input buttons. My friend drew a nearly identical diagram, which took him half an hour. It took me five hours. Also, does anyone have any tips or tricks for drawing circuit diagrams? It's a shame because I love electronics and my project is really complicated, with at least 1000 wires.

i fond the only thing to help with things like that are templates
the way i see it, dyspraxia is an extra hurdle in every race i run, but that extra hurdle, is just extra exercise, so in the end, i will come through stronger.

Oooh... I used to hate physics, one of my worst subjects. I hate drawing circuit diagrams, I could never do the symbols. Maybe you could get a stamp or something which would let you copy the symbol over instead of you drawing it.

I found a piece of software which helps for coursework, but not in exams. It (the software) is called Yenka. Here's an excerpt from one of my projects, which took me about three hours to research, work out and put together:
