UML diagrams standardize how you view the design of a system in software or business. Now it’s easy to build these architectural blueprints on a digital whiteboard with FigJam.
A Unified Modeling Language (UML) diagram visually represents a system by maintaining information about it. This is how you’d plot class diagrams — a popular type of UML diagram — inside FigJam:
Classes: Choose rectangles from among FigJam’s default shapes to show the three components that make up a class — name, attributes, and operations.
Packages: Insert the tabbed folder shape to visualize packages that group similar classes together.
Links and associations: Plot straight lines to create logical links between classes. Also name these associations with the text tool. This interactive Fishbone Diagram template can help you get started.
Temporarily invite anyone, including visitors without a FigJam account to edit and interact with your UML diagram.

A Unified Modeling Language (UML) diagram visually represents a system by maintaining information about it. UML diagrams are commonly used to describe the components of a system and the relationships between them. It's a helpful tool to communicate complex structures, making it easier for teams to describe, design, and document a system.
Simplify the diagramming process with our free UML diagram tool. Drag-and-drop shapes to show the key components that make up a class, and visualize packages that group similar classes together. From there, plot lines to create links between classes. Customize the diagram's layout, and add notes or comments for additional context. Invite collaborators to review, edit, and publish as a team.
Using a UML diagram template has many advantages for developers, designers, and project managers. Key benefits include:
