how many of you actually use it as a design tool? how big does a project get before you start? what tools have you found useful? how much detail do you go into?

generally I use UML in a conceptual manner. It helps me to better think about problems, 'cause with visual artifacts, colors, assosiation, my mind is able to recognize the main aspects of a problem.
Useless to say that there are a lot of techniques to improve a UML diagrams. The Better is diagram the less I need to "study" it.
Tools: I use a bunch of tools, dependes upon the project size.
