I'm looking for good software to design control systems, and more specifically to neatly design "block diagrams" for control systems.

Is there something like that?

  • $\begingroup$ I'm not sure, if it would I need a link to a tutorial or a guide because I'm not that familiar with Matlab. $\endgroup$

You can use Matlab Simulink.

I think Simulink is the most satisfactory and easy way to build control systems with traditional block diagrams.
