In Designer you define and edit the rules, on which the Configurators are based, which the responsible Engineer applies in Project Builder. To this purpose you create Libraries with rules (Macro-Typicals, Typical-Groups and Configurators) and specify their usage. The Engineer then enriches the Configurators with project-specific information in the Project Builder.

- Navigation bar: Here you navigate between Macro-Typicals, Typical-Groups and Configurators.
- Selection area: The selection area provides an overview of your Macro-Typicals, Typical-Groups and configurators from which you can choose. Here you can also add new elements to your selection list by using the New button.
- Defined working section: Here you edit the element that you have selected in the selection area. Here you define the configuration variables and rules and create macros.
- Header: You can access the App selection, notifications or your profile via the header.
A Library maps the product for which you later want to generate a documentation. You manage and organize your Library data in a Library.
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-Typical. 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.
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 Builder.
Each Macro-Typical maps a partial function of the product that is to be configured. A Macro-Typical contains information about the structure and the usage of various project components. It can represent the technical context of a product function, for example a feed-in transport or an aligning gage. However, it can also contain a technical task such as the machine topology or a PLC control. Macro-Typicals can also be grouped in larger information units, that is, in Typical-Groups.
When you have created a Macro-Typical, you can also group it, nest it and bundle it into a larger information unit, that is the Typical-Group. Typical-Groups can also be grouped in a Typical-Group.
In a Typical-Group you realize logical relationships between the individual product functions. In addition you can define the user interface of a configurator in the Project Builder by using configuration variables in Typical-Groups.
A configurator contains all Macro-Typicals and Typical-Groups that you have created in the library. It maps all the possible variants of the product that is to be configured completely .
