    I just tried LabCenter’s Proteus Schematic, PCB and Simulation CAD product after seeing the advertisement on the back of Nuts & Volts. In the spirit of Open Source Hardware I have been using another common CAD product but found that I was spending lots of time doing the same motions repeatedly whereas I am big on automation in the form of auto-labeling and single click repeats. I have been using CAD system since there were no CAD systems, we literally drew the schematic twice for the C128 back at Commodore Business Machines in the 1980’s; once on grid paper and then again on a frightfully expensive dedicated Mentor workstation that up until then had been used to do chip design.
