Software to lay out wiring schematics
I'm looking for some software to lay out some electrical schematics in that's compatible with automotive 12 volt technologies. I'm hoping to find something that's a visio-like software where I can drop bosch relays, switches of all varieties, resistors, lamps, motors, the whole gamut of components you'd see in an automotive environment. I can hand-draw the schematics, but I'm hoping to be able to make nice professional looking ones that I can share with the GMTC community. Anyone know of anything that will fit the bill?Christopher

If you are familiar with visio maybe there are some templates you could add in?

A quick preliminary search didn't yield any stencils that had what I was looking for. For example, I want to be able to place a standard Bosch relay and have the pins laid out in the proper design and labeled.

Sounds like auto-cad to me...

I'll see if I can get a hold of AutoCad Electrical. It looks like they have a trial version available. I've found a couple other programs like Smart Draw. It seems to do a decent job but it costs far too much and is to broad of a program to do the job well.

There used to be a proram called OrCAD that was really great for schematic drawings. Don't know if they are still around, though.csltrains96
