## How to Draw Geometric Shapes

Knowledge of geometry grants people good logic, abstract and spatial thinking skills. The object of study of geometry is the size, shape and position, the 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional shapes. Geometry is related to many other areas in math and is used daily by engineers, architects, designers, and many other professionals. Today, the objects of geometry are not only shapes and solids. It deals with properties and relationships and looks much more about analysis and reasoning. Geometry drawings can be helpful when you study geometry or need to illustrate some investigation related to geometry. ConceptDraw DIAGRAM allows you to draw plane and solid geometry shapes quickly and easily.

## Mathematical Diagrams

ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software extended with Mathematics solution from the Science and Education area is the best for creating: mathematical diagrams, graphics, tape diagrams various mathematical illustrations of any complexity quick and easy.
Mathematics solution provides 3 libraries: Plane Geometry Library, Solid Geometry Library, Trigonometric Functions Library.

## ERD Symbols and Meanings

Crow's foot notation is used in Barker's Notation, Structured Systems Analysis and Design Method (SSADM) and information engineering. Crow's foot diagrams represent entities as boxes, and relationships as lines between the boxes. Different shapes at the ends of these lines represent the cardinality of the relationship.
The Chen's ERD notation is still used and is considered to present a more detailed way of representing entities and relationships.
To create an ERD, software engineers mainly turn to dedicated drawing software, which contain the full notation resources for their specific database design - ERD symbols and meanings. CS Odessa has released an all-inclusive Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) solution for their powerful drawing program, ConceptDraw DIAGRAM.

## Mathematics Symbols

ConceptDraw DIAGRAM extended with Mathematics solution from the Science and Education area is a powerful diagramming and vector drawing software that offers all needed tools for mathematical diagrams designing.
Mathematics solution provides 3 libraries with predesigned vector mathematics symbols and figures:
Solid Geometry Library, Plane Geometry Library and Trigonometric Functions Library.

## Entity Relationship Diagram Symbols

Creating an entity-relationship (ER) model is to visually represent the structure of a business database, where data equates to entities (or objects) that are linked by defined relationships expressing dependencies and requirements. By nature it is an abstract visualization, the first step in the design process towards creating a logical and functional database.
ERD symbols used for professional ERD drawing are collected in libraries from the Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) solution for ConceptDraw DIAGRAM.

## Mathematics

Mathematics solution extends ConceptDraw DIAGRAM software with templates, samples and libraries of vector stencils for drawing the mathematical illustrations, diagrams and charts.

## Mechanical Drawing Symbols

Mechanical Engineering solution — 8 libraries are available with 602 commonly used mechanical drawing symbols in Mechanical Engineering Solution, including libraries called Bearings with 59 elements of roller and ball bearings, shafts, gears, hooks, springs, spindles and keys; Dimensioning and Tolerancing with 45 elements; Fluid Power Equipment containing 113 elements of motors, pumps, air compressors, meters, cylinders, actuators and gauges; Fluid Power Valves containing 93 elements of pneumatic and hydraulic valves (directional control valves, flow control valves, pressure control valves) and electrohydraulic and electropneumatic valves; as well as many other sophisticated symbols and templates for your use.

## ER Diagram Styles

When creating ER diagrams, you can apply different color ER diagram styles and also notation styles. ConceptDraw DIAGRAM enhanced with Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) Solution gives the ability to draw visual and attractive ER Diagrams using the style icons from Crow’s Foot notation and Chen's notation professionally designed and offered by ERD Chen's Notation and ERD Crow’s Foot Notation libraries.
