View Full Version : Looking for a Certain Type of Program

Mods: I wasn't sure whether to post this in the Software thread or Linux Thread.
I build electronics on the side and I am looking for a program that will allow me to click a picture of a component (i.e. a capacitor) and drag it to where it would go on a picture of another component (i.e. the circuitboard), and build the project virtually. I know that this software exists, most likely for Windows or Mac, but I was wondering if anyone knew of it existing as a Linux app. Or open source at all, because I'd like to tweak it to do a lot more.

Something like this?

Something a little more 3D. Where what I have on the screen looks like what I'm building, not just the diagram. That is pretty cool though. I'll check that out. I've always just sketched out the diagrams on paper.
