Fork a circuit

Forking is when you take an existing circuit and make a copy to work on.  The changes you make to the new circuit do not affect the original, forked, circuit.

This is a great way to get started, use something that's already been built!

Here's how: Goto the detail page (overview) of any circuit or component and choose Fork from the upper right side. Doing this will copy and add the circuit or component to your own dashboard.

Update: You can not add non-breadboard components to a breadboard circuit, even if you've forked them.

    Hi Tlleegml,

    The breadboard circuits are limited to the built in components. User created components are for schematic-based circuits only - which is the other half of 123D Circuits.

    Breadboard components are a lot more complex: they have a mathematical model that defines how they react in a simulation and they all have a certain look. Therefore these have to be built by the 123D Circuits team. We do keep track internally of user requests for new breadboard components, and if you ask for something that's already been asked for we count your vote. I hope that was helpful.

    so how do I connect that component to my breadboard (is that even possible?). OR what can I even do with the forked component?

    WOWW.... this is the answer that I was looking for... (took me a couple of days to find it)
    That was one of my question when creating components from Scratch.. there is no "mathematical modelling" behind, so can't be used on a bread board circuit......... to simulate how behaves when run the code on the Arduino.... uuuuuuffffffff
    @ ROB is there a list to vote to create new components?... have the team consider to create digital controlled led (like WS1228B... XD).... there is my vote for WS2812B
