SmartDraw 2017 Radically Improves Electrical, Piping and Other Engineering Diagrams

29 MARCH 2017

SmartDraw 2017 makes it much easier to draw circuit diagrams and other engineering plans by allowing you to add, move and remove symbols by simply dragging them. No need to carefully connect and disconnect lines anymore. SmartDraw introduces powerful automation that makes even complicated engineering diagrams easy.

SmartDraw 2017's new electrical engineering features include:

1. Adding Symbols to Lines

To add a symbol to your circuit diagram, all you have to do is drag a symbol to a line and drop it. The line will split into two and connect each end to the symbol in exactly the right place.

Symbols will even rotate to align correctly—automatically.

2. Moving Symbols

Moving symbols is also easier in SmartDraw 2017. Use the mouse to gently drag a symbol along a line to change its position.

Move the symbol further away and it "tears" from the line and you can move it to another. The original line will heal automatically.

3. Removing Symbols

To remove a symbol simply delete it or move it away from the line. The line will heal itself automatically.

SmartDraw is the only diagramming software that offers this power and ease of use for electrical engineering.
