Hello, I am looking for a good as built wiring diagram software solution.
Preferably Apple OSX but WindowsXP will do as well.

I currently am building some new racks and would like a solution for me being able to create graphing and wiring layouts (if one exists)

Any information is greatly appreciated On which software packages to look at.
Thanks so much!

If you are a pro - D-Tools.
Otherwise - Visio, then PowerPoint

NetZoom.
Works with Visio and gives you scale images of the products, front, back, and 3D. It also works with Middle Atlantic Rack tools.

D-tools looks amazing, unfortunatly it is out of my budget range for this project. I am looking for something that will allow me to create a wire list from rack components. Looks like D-tool might be the only all in one solution, Net zoom does look nice though, does anyone here use that?
Thanks!

My pleasure. "Free" is always nice . I use D-Tools or I would give it a twirl. It looks pretty amazing for being free. It is not related to A/V documentation, but for those interested, another absolutely amazing free 3-D drawing tool is Google Sketch-Up.

I had a problem with AVSnap and I posted on the AVSnap Forum.
Then Jack telephoned me and using the "Meeting" feature of AVSnap to link to my PC he worked on my problem.
One of the signs of a skilled programmer is when he can navigate on someone else's computer with ease.
