One remaining drawing conventions is Oblique drawing – In this convention the angles used are 45 degrees and 90 degrees. The only difference between the two named styles is in the scale of the dimension going away from the viewer. This first example is Cavalier Oblique and shows the full scale (1:1) in the axis This drawing (shown to the left) is symmetric about the horizontal centre-line. Centre-lines are chain-dotted and are used for symmetric objects, and also for showing the centre of circles and holes.

Played with it a little when I found it, but am using icircuit from the apple app store on my ipad. icircuit seems to work well and helps debug analog ccts. I have also tried icircuit with 74 TTL counters 74161 cascaded and it worked very well. Impressive. I find that some web based apps slow down my computer crash, usually java goes awry. Perhaps it's time to get a newer computer. – oldsirhippy
