good link, does anyone know of a electronics schematic "clip art" package for inkscape?

for illustration reasons I would rather use an art program than a design program,

fritzing gives me a headache and I really dont like the "real" pic's


Hmmm... Looks like the image was produced using a vector drawing program.

Fritzing is good, however, it runs terribly slow (at least on my machine (C2D E6750, 4GBDDR2@1066(dual)) after wiring a single breadboard, every click takes something like 1sec.

After solving the performance issue, I have a very helpful and cool idea that could be implemented. The idea is to colour the breadboard holes according to the wires colours, like this:

Nice, huh?

Another feature is the ability to render curved wires.

It would be nice also to be able to see an entire circuit by highlighting it or something, and also to activate the switches to interrupt it.

It is. Where did you get the picture? That might provide a clue. I don't recognize it. I've never seen another picture like it.

It's from the ShiftOut tutorial page.

and the ShiftIn tutorial has a similar image.

Just realize that while it helps you, eventually the training wheels need to come off...

Sure! However... isn't "Arduino" itself a kind of "training wheels"?

Oh my God! This is amazeing!!

Previous discussion of these vector illustrations here http://www.arduino.cc/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1225769108 and here http://www.arduino.cc/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1192447197

This discussions pretty much answers my topic :)... I would like to hear from the author of those pics though.

Thank you very much guys! [smiley=thumbup.gif]
