The Geodatabase Diagrammer is an ArcCatalog custom command. When you select any geodatabase in ArcCatalog and click this, Visio is launched and a diagram is constructed with elements of the geodatabase. You can edit this diagram to make a custom data model diagram. You must have Visio 5 or better, any edition.
We have developed this tool to semi-automate a suite of data model posters documenting best practices in geodatabase design. For examples, go to support.esri.com and follow the links to ArcGIS Desktop > Data models > 2002 User Conference Posters.
We are sharing this tool so that GIS professionals can document their geodatabase designs in our presentation style.
