This page describes how to Import component definitions from the online catalog.

Select the Import Component Definitions option from the catalog section. This can also be done by using the local catalog module tab from the sidebar.

It is recommended to first import definitions of all the components from the online catalog required for building your network.


In the import and export of component definitions window, select the category and or manufacturer and search from the list of components from the online catalog or search with a specific name if the desired component name is known (1).

Select the required components (2) and add the component definitions to your local catalog by clicking Import. Repeat this process, until all needed component definitions are imported into your local catalog.

On the right (3) there will be a preview of the currently selected component. There are also shortcuts to search for either all fitting modules, or all modules of a specific slot type.

Importing a component definition will also automatically import any port typesslot typesgeometries, etc. used in the definition.

You can now find all your imported component definitions in the local catalog (Alt + C).

Right click on a component and select show modules from catalog to show available modules in the local catalog for the selected component or import fitting modules to import modules from the online catalog.

If a component or module is not yet available in the online catalog, you can request it from our support.

You can also export component definitions that you have created, from the export tab in a similar way.


After your local catalog is populated with your desired components, you can immediately place these components in your infrastructure and begin your network construction.
