UML Software with All Features You Need

Our UML diagramming software offers a lot of useful features that improve your diagrams. You may use a lot of styling options, create custom reusable visual styles, or choose from many pre-defined style sets. Smart guides help you to build well-aligned professional-looking diagrams. You do not need to start with a blank canvas, you may generate diagrams from various sources - databases, source codes, .NET assemblies, or even texts. The result may be printed or exported to many imaging formats (bitmap and also vector ones).

Everything is a Model

Some UML diagram tools are just drawing software. Software Ideas Modeler is a model-based UML tool. Every element on your diagram has its model part. It allows you to use a single element multiple times - on various diagrams or even on the same one. Then you edit the element just once and all its instances and references are updated immediately.

Diagram Sharing

You can share your UML diagrams very easily. Export them to common bitmap and vector formats (SVG, JPG, PNG, GIF, PDF, and others). Then you can work with your diagrams in other graphical apps or text processors. You can attach the diagram files to an email message and send it to others, who do not have any UML diagram software. You can also share the Software Ideas Modeler project file and send it to your friends as we offer the free viewer for the project files.

Model Sharing

You can also share the UML models and use them in other UML tools or you can import the models from them to Software Ideas Modeler and generate the corresponding UML diagrams. It is possible via the XMI import/export feature.

Latest UML Tool Tutorials

UML Base Class

UML diagrams support defining base classes for the more specific classes using generalizations. The name of the base class can be displayed inside the classifier box.

Generate Types from OpenAPI

This tutorial shows you how to generate types in various programming languages for a chosen Open API specification.

Open API to Diagram

Open API specification (OAS) is a standard for RESTful web service definition. Software Ideas Modeler provides a reverse engineering tool that allows you to import the Open API specification and generate UML diagrams.

Show Inherited Attributes and Operations

A subclass in the UML class diagram is connected with its superclass using the generalization relationship. The subclass inherits all attributes and operations of the superclass, although they are listed only in the superclass box. This tutorial shows you how to show also the inherited fields in subclasses.

Show Association Attributes (in UML Class)

Apart from standard attributes defined within a UML class, the attributes of a UML class can also be expressed using the associations.
