Papyrus 4.2.0 Nightly RCP
Posted Oct 25, 2018

Eclipse has stopped its support for 32 bits systems launchers. Papyrus 4.2.0 RCP and onward will not be released for 32 bits environments until a 32 bits launcher solution has been found.

Domain Specific

Domain Specific

To address any specific domain, every part of Papyrus may be customized: UML profile, model explorer, diagram notation and style, properties views, palette and creation menus, and much more...



Papyrus enables model-based techniques: model-based simulation, model-based formal testing, safety analysis, performance/trade-offs analysis, architecture exploration...


Industry ready, academia friendly

Papyrus is an industrial-grade open source Model-Based Engineering tool. Papyrus has notably been used successfuly in industrial projects and is the base platform for several industrial modeling tools.

Papyrus Use Case Stories

Have a look to our detailed use case stories to learn how Papyrus has been applied to enable MBE in practice:

Airbus Use Case Story" Designing freedom of flight "
Aldebaran Use Case Story" Humanoid robots family is growing "
DGA Use Case Story" A collaboration platform for avionics systems "

A MBE solution for industrial and academic applications

As part of Polarsys (the Industrial Working Group of Eclipse), Papyrus has become a PolarSys Solution.

In addition, in order to federate the industrial needs and efforts on MBE, a Papyrus Industry Consortium has been setup.

Finally, Papyrus being open source, it has become the natural choice in academia for both teaching and research purposes.



UML 2.5.0

Papyrus is graphical editing tool for UML 2 as defined by OMG. Papyrus targets to implement 100% of the OMG specification!

Papyrus provides editors for all the UML diagrams:

  • Class Diagram
  • Object Diagram
  • Package Diagram
  • Composite Structure Diagram
  • Component Diagram
  • Deployment Diagram
  • Profile Diagram
  • Use case Diagram
  • Activity Diagram
  • State machine Diagram
  • Communication Diagram
  • Sequence Diagram
  • Timing Diagram
  • Interaction overview Diagram


SysML 1.1 and 1.4

Papyrus provides also a complete support to SysML in order to enable model-based system engineering. Specific tabular and graphical editors required for SysML are also provided:

  • Block Definition Diagram
  • Internal Block Diagram
  • Requirement Diagram
  • Parametric Diagram
  • Requirement table
  • Allocation table

Model Execution

Model execution

Thanks to Moka, Papyrus can execute models using a rich and extensible animation and simulation framework.

Also, as graphical modeling is not always the best way for specifying the behavior of executable models, Papyrus provides textual notation edition with syntax highlight, completion and content assist. It is of course a customizable feature of Papyrus.


Fully customizable environment

All the modeling features of Papyrus are designed to be customizable and to maximize reuse. Therefore, should you want to adapt the standard Papyrus configuration for a specific domain, notation, modeling practice, use the powerful customization mechanisms of Papyrus to adapt the Papyrus modeling environment to suit your needs. Many configurations in Papyrus being model-based, the customization can be done live.

  • Define your own graphical, textual or tabular notation.
  • Filter existing palettes or define your own ones with a model-based configuration.
  • Define dedicated properties views to present just the characteristics that are important to you.
  • Read your model with dedicated model explorer structuring and rendering.
  • Reuse standard languages or define your own modeling language thanks to the UML profile editor.
