Description

TinyCAD is a program for drawing electrical circuit diagrams commonly known as schematic drawings. It supports standard and custom symbol libraries. It supports PCB layout programs with several netlist formats and can also produce SPICE simulation netlists. It is also often used to draw one-line diagrams, block diagrams, and presentation drawings.

    Great job! Simple, fast, light tool for drawing schematics. It has snap to grid, drag connected component, 90degree (and more) wire guide, rotate. Drawing your own parts is simple and fast. I worked in Protel, trying KiCad, working in DraftSight (for laser cutting), SolidWorks and this one (TinyCad) is very nice, free and open. You should setup page/printer first, so program can take paper size from your printer driver. Then it will fit into page at 100%

    Recommended for anyone that's looking for a simple program to draw schematics. It obviously doesn't have the features of an EPlan or Solidworks Electrical but that's not necessarily a bad thing.The high end programs are nice if you work with them full time but the learning curve for those is too steep if you only use them occasionally. There's a lot to be said for a simple, easy-to-use program that does one thing well, and this fits into that category. The included library is on the small side but creating library components is simple and quick so that's not a major problem. The only feature that I really miss is the ability to automatically link relays across multiple pages; with the coil on one page and the contacts on another. Still, it's a very useful program that I can use to draw schematics in a fraction of the time compared to the more sophisticated offerings.

    Seriously, what more could you ask for? Quick to install, easy to get a feel for, works great for those of us who aren't super users (might work great for super users too, I just know I'm not one). A+ thank you.

    Hi - Excellent CAD system , just does the job quickly. been using it for years. Note for new users - find the Tinycad group on Yahoo for libraries that users have shared etc Also for some reason the SF link to 'download the latest version' points to the v2.6 zip file This is incorrect - the latest is v2.8 or above - its much better - see the files tab on SF Another good thing - the .DSN files that are output by TinyCad are XML structured Ascii text so you can usefully do copy and paste/replace using notepad or Notepad++ , just be careful not to break the structure - work on a copy! The libraries are stored in SQLite so are not easy to edit, until you edit the library and export all symbols to XML

    Terrific, just what I needed to do simple circuit design. For a dabbler in EE like myself, it was very intuitive to just start up and begin placing components and putting things together. I'm very happy to have such a useful tool that I don't have to spend megabucks on and has such a great learning curve. One feature I would have liked to see made simpler is creating your own symbol for custom IC's. Although this is possible, it would be nice to have the process be a little more guided.
