ERD Shape Library
We have all the shapes you’ll need to make a professional, industry-standard ERD. When you use Lucidchart's ER diagram software, your finished work will look just as it should.
Use Lucidchart to create entity-relationship diagrams powerfully and efficiently. Get started with our basic naming and shape conventions, including entities, relationships, and attributes. Then convey cardinality constraints with simple formatting of shapes and arrows.
Lucidchart's real-time collaboration means zero downtime—no more wondering which member of your team has the working copy. Your documents are stored safely in the cloud and available whenever you need them. With in-editor chats, comments, and presence, each member of your team will be on the same page.
