Dots on Schematics

Jun 11 2012, 4:00 PM PDT · 4 comments »

CircuitLab schematics now include connection dots to show when wires intersect. This behavior makes it more clear where components are connected or not, especially in busy schematics, and it's been a highly requested feature on our forums. These dots appear when 3 or more lines (wires or component terminals) intersect at a single point:

In the 15 weeks since we first launched CircuitLab, our users have saved more than 16,000+ circuits in our system. Stay tuned for a blog post about how we used 64 CPUs to re-render them all with our new rendering engine (including connection dots, plus publication-quality schematics).


Greatly appreciate the recent improvements regarding sharing, printing, and the connection dots. You guys really listen to user input!

I am really loving CircuitLab! Huge kudo's to everyone involved! I am just a hobbyist and learning this stuff and the forum/blog has been a big help! Are there any in-browser plans for a layout/pcb solution to go with CircuitLab? That would be awesome!

I have the same question. How do I insert a "bridge" where wires cross but do not connect?
