Use the toolbar to configure and customize the component. The following options are available:

  • Color: Select a predefined color or enter the hexadecimal value for the color you want. You can use the same color for both 2D and 3D view, or choose different colors for each.
  • Width: Choose the width of your block component.
  • Height: Choose the height of your block component.
  • Depth: Choose the depth of your block component.


Use the Cloudcraft API to programmatically access and render your architecture diagrams as JSON objects. The following is an example JSON object of a Block component:

  "type": "block",
  "id": "76cddb57-6368-4e8b-805f-1306f558812b",
  "mapPos": [3, 9],
  "width": 2,
  "height": 1,
  "depth": 2,
  "color": {
    "isometric": "#ececed",
    "2d": "#4286c5"
  "locked": true,
  "link": "blueprint://34b7a049-e92b-4146-b937-7eee9ae788b5"
