Subnet component

The Subnet component is used to represent subnets from your Amazon Web Services architecture with Cloudcraft.


The toolbar is displayed when selecting a component. It allows you to customize parts of your component and its visual to your liking.

  • Color. Select a predefined color or enter the hexadecimal value of the color for the component and its accent. The component can use the same color for both 2D and 3D view, or different colors for each.
  • Name. Give the subnet a name.
  • Shape. Select a shape for the subnet, dynamic or rectangular.
  • Padding. Increase or decrease the amount of space inside the subnet.


In the Cloudcraft API, the subnet component is represented in JSON.
