What are the main advantages of Software Ideas Modeler?

Easy Diagram Drawing

Although, Software Ideas Modeler offers many advanced features, we do not forget about easy and user-friendly diagram creation. You can draw a diagram on few clicks. Try it yourself and you will see. You will like the diagramming capabilities. If you find something non-user-friendly, please let us know and we will make it even better.

Layout Options

Layers, groups, container layout, and auto layouts. Draw diagrams using snap lines and grid. Adjust diagrams using batch layout actions.

Complex Model and Its Reusability

This is not an ordinary diagramming software, similar to hundreds of others on the web. In case of Software Ideas Modeler, a project is not only a set of separate diagrams. It includes the interconnected model of your software. Diagrams are only different views – you can place a model element to multiple diagrams. If you change the element name or any parameters, the change will be reflected everywhere. That is how a true CASE tool works!

Styling and Style Set

Your diagrams do not need to be black and white. Our diagram editor offers you a lot of predefined styles, which makes your diagrams more attractive. You can design your colorful styles and style sets, which are re-usable among projects.

Our Commitment

is to develop and provide the best diagramming experience for software architects, developers, managers and everyone who need professional diagrams. We brought thousands of improvements to our CASE tool over time and we promise to improve our solution further to meet your highest expectations.

Did you find an issue with our software? Let us know and we will be happy to make things better.
