There is a free trial download for CircuitMaker. Also look at Eagle, there is a free (limited) version of that program as well.

You can also use Dia.

http://www.gnome.org/projects/dia/

Its probably best for simple electronic diagrams but its fairly flexible and can be used for any type of diagrams. Opensource and multi-platform.

Default Anyone know some good schematic programs?

Hello,

I have recently been using Easy PC for windows. The schematics come out fine if you print them on A3. But when you make them smaller and edit them to fit the diyaudio image upload, they look awful.

I know AutoCAD was quite good for this ( a work colleague used it) but there is a pretty steep learning curve using autoCAD!

Regards

Kevin

I have downloaded
McCAD and EAGLE
Eagle is free and McCAD unregistered is in 'lite' mode.
I havent use them much

I also sometimes have this image resize problem.
Get very bad quality.
Maybe it is more I do not know how to use my image editor?
