There aren’t that many software packages available that you can set up science diagrams with. As such,  if you need to set up a science presentation check out the Chemix website. That’s an online editor that you can set up science lab equipment diagrams with.

Open the Chemix page [1], and click the Launch button to run the editor in the shot below. That includes a toolbar from which you can select a variety of science apparatus to add to the diagram. There click an apparatus to add it to the diagram.

In addition, you can also zoom in and out of the diagram. Press Ctrl + Click and drag mouse to zoom in and out. To pan left and right, press Shift + Click and drag mouse.

To save a diagram, click SAVE AS IMAGE. Then you can save the diagram as a JPEG image. As such, it can then be opened in any image-editor software.
