In this video, learn how to use the wire tool to wire up your schematic once the electrical components have been placed.
- [Instructor] So, to start wiring our schematic,…I can just navigate up to the active bar…and this icon in the middle here…has a number of wiring options for me.…So, just to start, we can use Wire.…And now it's a very simple process,…just click once to start our Wire…and click again to finish our Wire.…Also notice, if I hover over any pins…or electrical connection points,…I should see my X getting a little bit larger…and turning red.…
So, that's just indicating to me…that right on this pin 17,…there is an electrical connection point…that I will connect to.…So, if I click right on to the start of that pin,…that will start my wire.…And I'll just move my mouse cursor…to wherever I'd like it to go next,…and then click again,…so probably at the beginning…of my resistor component here again.…I can see my red X coming in…so there is no electrical connection point there,…and just click again there,…and now, I have my first wire drawn…between the pins 17 and the first pin of my resistor.…
So, I can just continue that process again…
