Drawing an electrical diagram, me?
Of course... drawing your own domestic electrical diagrams has just become easy as pie. This website bundles all tools and knowledge to kick start your project. The goal of this site is to aid you with the required drawing part of your electrical wiring. The actual design and physical installation is of course best left to a certified electrician.
The free AREI compliant electrical symbols offered on this website are compatible with Visio, AutoCAD and can also be used with vector based drawing tools of which many are completely free, a good example is Inkscape.

AboutDuring the construction of my house, I searched the web for days in an attempt to find an easy and free method to create professional looking electrical wiring diagrams but alas to no avail.Hence, this initiative to share some knowledge and my collection of homemade AREI complaint shapes, I really hope you can benefit from them...
I wish you the best of luck in realizing you project!
The refurbishment of our kitchen turned out to be true a nightmare, needless to say we were very worried about the certification of our increased connection capacity. Luckily, we found your website and by using the trial version of Visio and your free electrical shapes the required drawings were done in no time. BTW, I had no previous experience with electrical diagrams what so ever. Thanks a lot!Rudi & Jeaninne B.
Thanks ShadowHunter, the inspection of my new domestic electrical wiring was a breeze. The inspector told me that if more people would present this level of diagrams he would be home by noon.Nathan & Gudrun W.
Hello, our electrician could not believe what he saw when we showed him our homemade wiring diagram. Everything went extremely smoothly. Thank you for offering these shapes free of charge.Eva & Wouter H.
