Drawing ER diagrams on a Mac
Drawing ER diagrams on a Mac is smooth and easy when you have a software tool well-suited for professional ERD drawing. ConceptDraw DIAGRAM software for Mac extended with the Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) solution is the best tool for drawing ER diagrams on a Mac.
Example 1. Drawing ER diagrams on a Mac
Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) solution from the Software Development Area for ConceptDraw Solution Park specially designed for professional ERD drawing gives you the possibility to design ER diagrams easily on your Mac. Use powerful drawing tools of this solution and 2 libraries with 45 predesigned vector objects:
- ERD Chen's Notation Library
- ERD Crow’s Foot Notation Library
Example 2. ERD Libraries for Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) Solution
To quickly design the E-R Diagram for Mac, you can follow few simply steps:
- drag desired objects from the libraries of Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) Solution to your document,
- connect the objects,
- use the Action button menu in the upper right corner of the object to change it,
- apply Line, Fill, Shadow and Text tools to format your diagram.
Another useful way of drawing in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM is to use quick-start Chen ERD template or Crow's Foot ERD template, and change it according to your needs.
Example 3. Drawing ER Diagram
The ER diagrams you see on this page were created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using the libraries from Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) Solution. An experienced user spent 10-15 minutes creating each of these samples. You can find them all at ConceptDraw STORE.
Use the Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) Solution for ConceptDraw DIAGRAM software for quick, easy and effective drawing ER diagrams on a Mac.
All source documents are vector graphic documents. They are available for reviewing, modifying, or converting to a variety of formats (PDF file, MS PowerPoint, MS Visio, and many other graphic formats) from the ConceptDraw STORE. The Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) Solution is available for all ConceptDraw DIAGRAM users.
TEN RELATED HOW TO's:
Both Crow’s Foot and Chen’s notations are used to build database models. Each of them has its’ own features, and if you use a proper entity relationship diagram software, you’ll be able to create diagrams of any notation. Database model with clearly defined entities and relationships between them facilitates further work greatly.
This ERD represents the model of Employee Certification Entity. The entity-relationship diagram is a visual instrument of database software development. It is used to structure data and to define the relationships between structured data groups. This ERD was designed with a help of ConceptDraw Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) solution. The solution supports the both basic ERD notations used to describe the structure of database: Chen's and Crow’s Foot notations.

Electrical plan is a document that is developed during the first stage of the building design. This scheme is composed of conventional images or symbols of components that operate by means of electric energy. To simplify the creation of these schemes you can use house electrical plan software, which will not require a long additional training to understand how to use it. You only need to install the necessary software ant it’s libraries and you’ll have one less problem during the building projection.
Any building contains a number of electrical systems, including switches, fixtures, outlets and other lightening equipment. All these should be depicted in a building electrical plans and included to general building documentation. This home electrical plan displays electrical and telecommunication devices placed to a home floor plan. On the plan, each electrical device is referenced with the proper symbol. Electrical symbols are used for universal recognition of the building plan by different persons who will be working on the construction. Not all possible electric symbols used on a certain plan, so the symbols used in the current home plan are included to a legend. The electrical home plan may be added as a separate document to a complete set of building plans.

Working with disordered network data can be quite exhausting. Sometimes it's necessary to find a network diagramming software to design Cisco network diagrams that would be easy to use and would be able to export diagrams to various graphic formats. ConceptDraw DIAGRAM is a great diagramming tool that is able to perform all these tasks easily.
This vector library represents a set of 26 objects depicting the manufacturer - standard equipment of Cisco switches and hubs. This is only a small part of the vector graphic objects of Cisco equipment that comprise the Cisco Network Diagrams solution. In full the ConceptDraw Cisco Network Diagrams solution has 15 libraries, containing more then 500 objects to create a Cisco network diagrams. They can be used by IT specialists and corporative IT divisions, system and network administrators to make the visual documentation of Cisco networks topology.

Database model is a graphic representation need at the beginning of project development. You won't have any problems with drawing ER diagrams on a Mac anymore with ConceptDraw DIAGRAM application. Special libraries that contain all the symbols of both Chen's and Crow’s foot notation allow you to start database modeling within a few minutes.
Creating entity-relationship diagrams on Mac is fun and effortless when you use a software designed for professional ERD drawing tailored to specific characteristics of Apple OS X. ConceptDraw DIAGRAM is a business diagramming software for those using OS X.
The Entity-Relationship Diagrams solution for ConceptDraw has 2 libraries containing about 50 vector icons, depicting ERD symbols of the most popular Chen's and Crow’s Foot Notations. The other valuable component of the solution is a collection of ERDs samples and templates that can be opened on Macs and PCs.
