Build box selections

Hi, i am putting together a circuit with a dc motor but unable to find a symbol for dc motors in the build box. Can you please help?

Lots of items are missing. I usually draw a box and add a label. To model a dc motor functionally would require a whole lot of information and gets very mechanical. A crude model would be voltage source for back emf and a resistor for winding resistance, but this applies at only one speed. See:

Hi, mikerogerswsm, Received with thanks, still believe the Build Box should be upgraded. There are occasions when the diagram has to be given to someone with less electronics knowledge. Thanks again
