  • Hi wakefun,


    From your description, my understanding is that you are looking for a free database modeling tool. If anything is misunderstand, please tell me.


    In SSMS, there has the database designer that allows you to design and visualize a database to which you are connected. You could open it in Object Explorer like the following screenshot.

    For more detailed information about designing database diagrams, you could refer to this document. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sql/ssms/visual-db-tools/design-database-diagrams-visual-database-tools?view=sql-server-2017


    Here is the comparison of data modeling tools, we hope that you could choose the more suitable tools via comparison. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_data_modeling_tools
