Some of you have noticed that I've started using new icons in my topology drawings lately. I recently discovered a wealth of impressive Visio shapes provided for free by the good folks at VSD Grafx, who do custom Visio shape development. They offer three identical sets of 110 generic network shapes (one set each in blue, green, and grey) of impressive quality. Here are just a handful.
These shapes are 100% vector images, meaning that they scale perfectly to any degree.
Although they aren't typically of use for topology drawings, VSD Grafx also offers stencil sets of true-to-life shapes of everything from desktop printers to a conference room complete with faceless attendees. The quality of these shapes is nothing short of amazing. Included below are just a few random samples.
The stencil sets are available at VisioCafe: just grab the full set .zip file to get all of them.
