If you like Microsoft’s ecosystem of devices and software, then you’ve been waiting for a new
Nokia Lumia handset for a looong time. Well the wait is just about over, and the only questions remaining are: 1. Are they too expensive? and 2. Which one is the right size for me?
We’ll tackle question number 2 today with a handy Visio download!
Looking at the number page views and download stats, the original Visio Crayon Network Shapes seem to be quite popular.
I’m happy to announce that they have been improved and extended! If you’re designing a new network or planning modifications to an existing network, these shapes are great for visually emphasizing that you are currently in the DESIGN STAGE ONLY, or this is JUST AN IDEA and that you don’t plan on working over the weekend to implement it just yet!
If you aren’t interested in using Visio 2010 for creating sophisticated network rack diagrams, then you probably should be.
Today, fellow Visio-fan Al Edlund tells you why he loves to do this, shares insights on the matter, demos solutions he built, and offers a complete VS 2010 project, written in VB.NET, to help you get started!
The code shows you how to get network data from Excel, how to use the new List and Container shapes in Visio 2010, and how to manipulate them programmatically. All this to make your network diagrams even more powerful and easy to use!
If you are an IT guy or do business process management, then you should probably check these offers out!
If you’ve ever needed to customize a Visio network server shape, then today is your day. We’ve got a tool that allows you to load custom icons into server shapes lickity-split.

Need 5000 FREE Visio network shapes? Or maybe just a couple of hundred? Well, if you do, you’ve come to the right place!
Today I’ll tell you about a wonderful resource for Visio network shapes called the Visio Cafe. They’ve got rack shapes, network shape, and auxiliary shapes that go along with network diagrams.
At last count, this site offers over 300MB of Visio networking madness, including 192 stencils which contain 4999 Visio network shapes. All of them for free!
Sometimes people ask me questions about network diagrams that aren’t so much about Visio as they are about how the diagrams should look.
A lot of people know that they need to create a network diagram, but they’re not sure which type to create, which shapes and symbols to use, or how to go about doing it.
If you are among these folks, or simply want to learn more about network documentation, you might be interested in a site that I’ve stumbled upon.
