This panel is one of the key ETS panels. Here, ETS project designers can create building structures.
- Functions (at the corresponding operation location in the Building - structure)
The flexible building and trades structures help in organizing and managing devices in ETS projects and installation work flow. The Buildings window presents the ETS project from the perspective of the installation.
After creation of the building structure, which represents the real physical building structure, this panel allows you to place the devices into the individual elements of the building structure. The following table gives an overview of the available building structure elements together with their usage.
|Buildings||Building Parts, Rooms, Floors, Corridors, Stairways, Function||Root level element|
|Building Parts||Building Parts, Rooms, Floors, Corridors, Stairways, Function||1st level container element|
|Floors||Rooms, Corridors, Function||2nd level container element|
|Corridors||Cabinets, devices, Function||2nd level container element|
|Stairways||Cabinets, devices, Function||2nd level container element|
|Rooms||Cabinets, devices, Function||2nd level container element|
|Cabinets||Devices, Function||2nd level container element|
|Trades||Sub-Trades||Root level element|

The properties of each element can be found here.

Assigning a device to a (sub-) trade is optional and is for sorting purposes only. It does not replace the assignment of a device in the ETS building structure.
