ConceptDraw Arrows10 Technology

Connection Points

How should diagramming software work? Is it possible to develop a diagram as quickly as the ideas come to you?

The innovative ConceptDraw Arrows10 Technology included in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM is a powerful drawing tool that changes the way diagrams are produced. While making the drawing process easier and faster.

ConceptDraw DIAGRAM is a powerful tool that helps you create a process map diagram quickly and easily. Fine-tuning the objects in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM allows you to create a really professional finished article. ConceptDraw Arrows10 Technology gives drawing connectors a smart behavior that provides quick and precise placement, allows for easy changes and automatic rearrangement.

A connection point is a special symbol on drawing shapes in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM. The connection point is intended as a target for connectors when working with objects in your diagram. By default, it lies exactly in the center of every shape, you can see this when the connection tool is selected.

There are additional invisible connection points in the center of each object’s side to facilitate making connections.

When using the connector tool you can make a connection by selecting a connection point of one object to another objects connection point. To verify you have hit the connection point it becomes displayed as a cross sign. Now your objects are connected! When moving objects inside of your diagram, connectors will stay pinned to the object’s center.

If you need to draw your connector from a specific point on an object that is not its center, you can create your own connection point. Just start drawing your connector starting at the newly selected connection point. The start point will become red; this means that a new connection point has been created. Now your connector is pinned to this exact point. This works if you create a new connection point at an object’s border.

You can easily disconnect a connector from any point and connect it to another one. The first connection point will be deleted automatically.

There is also a Point tool, this can be used if you want to start your connector inside or outside the shape you wish to connect to.

Electrical Symbols — Lamps, Acoustics, Readouts →

Wiring and circuit diagrams use special symbols recognized by everyone who uses the drawings. The symbols on the drawings show how components like resistors, capacitors, inductors, switches, lamps, acoustic devices, measuring devices and other electrical and electronic components are connected together. 26 libraries of the Electrical Engineering Solution of ConceptDraw DIAGRAM make your electrical diagramming simple, efficient, and effective. You can simply and quickly drop the ready-to-use objects from libraries into your document to create the electrical diagram.Electrical Symbols — Lamps, Acoustics, Readouts *

Fully Connected Network Topology Diagram →

There are several basic topologies including bus, star, point-to-point, ring and a hybrid. Two computers can form a fully connected network topology, and as the number of network nodes increases, the network diagram gets more complicated. This type of topology is also called a full mesh. This is a visual example of a computer network built using a mesh topology. This diagram presents the schematic structure of the full mesh network topology. A common mesh network topology means that each network device is connected with several points in the network, so if the one node of the network goes down, it does not cause an issue with an operability of the entire computer network. In a full mesh network topology, every computer or device in the network is interconnected with each of the other devices in the network.Fully Connected Network Topology Diagram *
