    In This Topic

    EPLAN API provides now full access to Pre-planning data. Following enhancements were created for this purpose:

    - project-related classes from Eplan.EplApi.DataModel.Planning namespace

    - PrePlanningMacro class and Insert::PrePlanning for the macro access

    - PrePlanningService for more complex operations

    - new enum values

     

     Eplan.EplApi.DataModel.Planning namespace

    Pre-Planning related objects are stored in Eplan.EplApi.DataModel.Planning namespace. Here is an UML class diagram which shows their inheritance hierarchy :

     

     

     

     Migration of PPE API to Preplanning API

    Since EPLAN 2.4, there is a new product for the pre-planning and basic engineering of plant and machinery: 

     

       EPLAN Preplanning Professional

     

    The product was developed on the basis of the EPLAN Platform and in parallel to the EPLAN PPE solution. Now it is the replacement of the EPLAN PPE. 

    Because of this, EPLAN PPE is no longer supported nor described in API Help since version 2.7. So please migrate your applications using PPE API to Preplanning API. 

    As a replacement, use classes from Eplan.EplApi.DataModel.Planning namespace and PrePlanningService. 

    Please note also, there will be no further development of the EPLAN PPE system.
