Bill does a great job explaining his wiring of his projects and the animated wire routing really helps. Does anyone know what drawing tool he uses? Although it looks like it could be Fritzing, it doesn't say Fritzing.

Welcome to the forum.

Are you talking about the portions that "drop" the components on the screen and then the wires "draw" to the connection?  I don't know what Bill uses, but Fritzing won't do those animations.  I'm a casual user of PowerPoint, but have seen quite exotic presentations doing the same kind of piece-meal animation.

Yes, that's what I'm looking for. I'm not concerned with the animation part, I'm looking for a tool to document my own projects for future reference. His wiring diagrams are much cleaner than what I'm able to obtain using Fritzing.

I believe Bill (@dronebot-workshop) does use Fritzing, in combination with a presentation tool such as PowerPoint, or an Linux equivalent from LibreOffice, etc...

Hopefully Bill can chime in and clear this up.

Cheers

He told me once and it was something like that but I took one look at it and couldn't figure it out.

Somebody posted an Arduino emulator in the last few weeks. I think you entered a parts list, then maybe the code and it drew the circuit??? Looked cool but I get by with lots of paper and mech pencils by the box.

You can find the answer to this and other questions in the FAQ on the website!

Thanks Bill. Keynote is the answer 😉

Do you photograph your own components?
