Topic: Two wires to one connection, or 45-degree connection?

Sometimes a circuit requires two parallel wires going between two nodes. One way this is represented is seen in the attached image. The ground connection is made by two wires in parallel (PA10 and PA9). The diagram represents this with one wire connected to the battery connector at 90 degrees, and the other wire connected at 45 degrees (or, as seen at the ground symbol, both wires enter at 45 degrees).

Is it possible to replicate this type of drawing with QET? If so, how? I haven't been able to figure it out so far. If not, are there any alternative methods that you could suggest to represent two wires attached to the same post?

Hello,

you can create your own elements, these must have the property as a terminal strip in the element editor so that the conductor properties can be continued.

With best regards

Re: Two wires to one connection, or 45-degree connection?

Thanks for the workaround suggestions! 

I made a custom part after posting just to keep moving forward. I think I prefer the terminal-strip elements idea (thanks Stebo). That way I wouldn't need to make 1-, 2-, and 3- terminal versions of many different parts.
