A LibraryA library is a macro project that contains all the elements that you need to map the individual modules of your project. These include macros, Macro-Typicals, Typical-Groups and configurators. maps the product for which you later want to generate a documentation. You manage and organize your library data in a Library.

Organize data

The smallest information units in your Library are configuration variables and macros. While you define configuration variables in eBUILD, you manage macros in the EPLAN Platform. Placeholder objects in macros serve as the communicator between the EPLAN Platform and eBUILD.

You bundle several macros and the associated configuration variables into a Macro-TypicalA Macro-Typical is an organization structure that contains information about the structure and the usage of the macros that are needed in the project. Each Macro-Typical maps a part of the machine / plant that is to be configured.. Macro-Typicals can in turn be assigned in Typical-Groups. It is also possible to nest Typical-Groups in each other. The combination of the Macro-Typicals and Typical-Groups is then effected in the configurators. All these elements are part of your Library.

Define rules

You create and manage the rules in the Library. The rules can include rules on dependencies, calculations and on the appearance of the configurator. Configuration variables and the formula language designed for eBUILD are available for the definition of the rules. Through the rules you determine which configuration options the user has in Project BuilderThe project-specific configuration and the automatic generation of the project documentation takes place in the Project Builder on the basis of the configurators and sets of rules defined in the Designer..

If you have filled a library with data, you can subsequently publish it. With the publication of the library it becomes visible for other users in the Project Builder.
