Circuit diagram maker
Lucidchart is an intelligent diagramming application that combines diagramming, data visualization, and collaboration to accelerate understanding and drive innovation.
The circuit design software for professional circuit diagrams
Create schematic or pictorial circuit diagrams for any audience
A well-crafted circuit design can offer clarity to an otherwise confusing system and provide a handy visual reference. Whether you’re building a simplified pictorial circuit diagram or a schematic circuit diagram for technically advanced employees, our circuit diagram maker can help. With drag-and-drop shapes and easily formatted lines and arrows, you can save time drawing out technical processes and create easy-to-read circuit drawings for any audience in minutes.
Choose from industry-standard circuit diagram symbols
Our circuit drawing software lets you easily construct any type of circuit diagram with dedicated shape libraries. With dozens of industry-standard shapes to choose from, you can create schematics, circuit diagrams, wiring diagrams, and other electrical diagrams. Choose from electrical, power sources, transistors, relays, logic gates, and other standard symbols. Lucidchart also allows you to add and manage custom shapes for your team to use and further standardize your processes.
Import existing files from Visio, Gliffy, draw.io, and OmniGraffle
Already have diagrams from other platforms? Use our import/export feature to upload your existing visuals into our circuit builder. Anyone can use Lucidchart to view imported documents from other programs, while users with Pro, Team, and Enterprise accounts can continue editing circuit drawings on the Lucidchart canvas. These users can even export their circuit designs back to Visio, so you can still collaborate with Visio users who haven’t yet made the switch.
Present and share your circuit diagram for universal understanding
Present your circuit design to collaborators, stakeholders, and decision-makers in just a few clicks with our in-editor Presentation Mode. Whether you’re presenting a pictorial or schematic circuit diagram, our circuit design software lets you present your designs and your audience can clearly visualize and understand each part of your circuit. Use Presentation Mode to display a sweeping overview of your circuit diagram or zoom in on key points of your circuit drawing for added clarification.
Share and collaborate using apps your team knows and loves
Share and collaborate on your circuit diagrams online within the programs you and your team use every day thanks to our dynamic integrations. Lucidchart is fully integrated with today’s most popular applications, including Confluence, Jira, MS Office, and G Suite, so you and your team can easily insert your circuit designs as you please. You can also download your circuit diagrams into a PDF, PNG, JPEG, or SVG file type for easy viewing and sharing.
How to draw a circuit diagram
Determine the goal and the audience of your circuit diagram
Consider whether your audience has professional knowledge of circuit structures, and based on that information, decide whether your diagram should be schematic or pictorial.
Select the shape library and drag and drop components
Select the circuit diagram shape library and begin dragging components onto the canvas. You can also import an image of your circuit to reference.
Draw and format connections
Draw lines between your components that represent wire connections. Lines that intersect will automatically show as line jumps, but you can adjust this feature in your page settings for lines.
Drop and designate power sources
Drop a power source component into your diagram and designate its label, orientation, and charge with the pop-up menu when you double-click it.
Review and share
Once you’ve added each element, including connections, ensure the circuit you’ve drawn behaves as expected. Share it with others or publish it in a presentation or as an image file.

Used by millions across the globe
I like that I can make any type of chart, and it's incredibly easy to use. I prefer [Lucidchart] to any other software I've used in the past. Charts come out cleaner, and they are less time consuming to make.
