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.

Local area network (LAN). Computer and Network Examples →

Computer networks nowadays are spread all across the world. The large number of parameters, such as geographic scale or communication protocols, can divide networks. One of the most common types of networks is called local area network (LAN). It convenient to represent network examples by means of diagrams. This local area network (LAN) diagram provides an easy way to see the way the devices in a local network are interacted. The diagram uses a library containing specific symbols to represent network equipment , media and the end-user devices such as computers (PC, mac, laptop) , network printer, hubs, server and finally a modem. There are two types of network topologies: physical and logical. The current diagram represents precisely a physical type of LAN topology because it refers to the physical layout of a local network equipment.Local area network (LAN) diagram

Network Topology Mapper →

Network Topology in communication networks, a topology is a usually schematic description of the arrangement of a network, including its nodes and connecting lines. There are two ways of defining network geometry: the physical topology and the logical topology. Network Topology Mapper offers extensive drawing tools professional-looking network diagrams quickly and easily allowing you to clearly represent and communicate network architecture, topology, and design to engineers, stakeholders and end-users.Network Topology Mapper *

Technical Drawing Software →

Engineering students usually have huge amount of homework. Learning how to develop a technical drawing is one of the necessary skills. Luckily, at the present time, there’s no need to draw it on paper, because there a lot of software tools for it. This drawing represents the Bearing symbols library, that is the part of the ConceptDraw Mechanical Engineering solution. Bearings are the important components of any movable mechanism. The function of bearing is to align, guide, and support the moving parts in any mechanical construction. Usually they are located between moving and stationary parts, it works as a connection point between them. Using Mechanical Engineering solution and ConceptDraw DIAGRAM one can effortlessly draw engineering diagrams of any complexity.Technical Drawing Software *

Campus Area Networks (CAN). Computer and Network Examples →

If we divide computer networks by scale, we get several main categories. The smallest network is PAN, as it connects personal devices themselves, and as the number of users grows, a local area network can be recognized, and campus area networks (CAN) connects several local networks located within some area like a university or a corporation. Computers connected to CAN share public educational materials and list of CAN network examples includes such prestigious universities like Stanford and Carnegie Mellon. This is an example of a computer network diagram created for a campus area network. It was created using using ConceptDraw solution for the Computer and Network diagramming. The specific of this sample campus network is its distribution. It is rather broad to embrace a big campus territory. This diagram can be applied as a template for designing custom area network topology diagram for a particular educational institution.Campus Area Networks (CAN). <br>Computer and Network Examples *

Electrical Symbols — Transformers and Windings →

A transformer is an electrical device that transfers electrical energy between two or more circuits through electromagnetic induction. Electromagnetic induction produces an electromotive force within a conductor which is exposed to time varying magnetic fields. Transformers are used to increase or decrease the alternating voltages in electric power applications. 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 — Transformers and Windings *
