- Click the Genome Library icon and double-click Room Fixture to add the folder and elements to the Genomes pane.
- Drag the element icons from the Genomes pane into position in the room layout.
- Right-click an element in the layout and select Properties to edit e.g. name, size, or type properties, or use the icons in the room design toolbar for editing.
Gaps and blocks
Gaps and blocks represent areas in the room layout in which equipment cannot be placed.
A gap is a section over which cables and cooling lines can be routed (such as a walkway or ramp).
A block is a section over which cables and cooling lines cannot be routed (such as a support column).
Walls and cages
Inner walls are represented as solid, mesh, or glass. You can copy properties from one wall to another or set a default wall type to be applied to all new walls.
Doors are represented as slide or swing doors. Swing doors are color-coded in the layout based on security type.
