Creating block hierarchy

Compound blocks let you encapsulate one or more blocks in a single block. The top-level blocks display major component connectivity, leaving the underlying levels to describe the logic of each component.

Compound blocks encourage a modular approach to large model construction by allowing you to design and test functionally independent subcomponents concurrently. Then using the embed block or the File > Add command, you can incorporate each subcomponent into the large system diagram.

You can have as many levels as you want in a compound block. The number is limited only by your system resources.

If your compound block contains sensitive information, you can restrict access to the block.
