Here you will find a comprehensive collection of modern shapes for OpenOffice Draw and Impress from the area of information and communication technology.
These shapes are provided as building blocks for your own drawings. For the moment I have:
- various servers and network components
- typical desktop computers and printers
- mobile devices and other communication equipment
- security related symbols and some other useful shapes

The latest version of network shapes is now available as an OpenOffice extension. Daniel Moos from imunixx GmbH in Moritzburg mailed that they use the collection for their business and better yet, he created a gallery extension for internal use. We easily agreed to share it here. You can find the extension on the Download page.
Please use the OpenOffice extension manager for installation. It might be necessary to restart the application to make the new gallery visible.
The collection of OODraw shapes (see Download) is now listed in the reputable heise Software Verzeichnis. They maintain not only a repository of executables, but have also some useful cliparts, spreadsheets and other templates.
I am really happy to gain some recognition for my work. Do you have an account at heise.de already? I encourage you to vote for the ICT shapes collection.

Several shapes added:
- 4 new server types

I created a sample drawing which I can easily publish because it is somehow fictional. Just to give an idea for what these shapes might be useful.
This PDF document will give you an overview of the collection of network and computer shapes (or stencils) available. You will need Draw from the OpenOffice suite to use the original .odg file or any other application supporting the OpenDocument Graphics format. Shapes can also be copied directly into Impress.
