Have you looked at what Visio can do? I've used it many times for database diagrams.

To generate all of the tables, indexes, FK's, etc, just right click on the database in the Explorer window, click on "Tasks", and then on "Generate Scripts".

This (generating scripts for everything in the database) is , in my humble opinion, one of the worst ways to teach developers about relationships and DRI. It's much easier and effective to make a simple example using two or three such tables along with the "Diagram" functionality in SQL Server. That way, they don't actually need to know much about the tables and can concentrate on learning about DRI, instead.

"RBAR is pronounced "ree-bar" and is a "Modenism" for "Row-By-Agonizing-Row".

First step towards the paradigm shift of writing Set Based code:
Stop thinking about what you want to do to a row... think, instead, of what you want to do to a column."

You can use the built in script generator in SSMS... right click on the db and select 'Generate Scripts'
