Once you have at least two icons in your diagram, you will be able to create a connection between them.

  • Start by clicking the Ports button in the top right of the diagram.

  • You will see that the icons change to show the ports that they have available.

  • Click and drag from one port to create a connection to another port.

Notice that while you are dragging to make a connection, D3M will only allow you to connect to other ports that are compatible with the port you started from. For example, you cannot make a connection between an IP port and a RADIO port.ย 

That's it! You now know how to create connections in D3M. Check out some of our other articles to learn how to reshape connections, change a connection's style, add data properties to a connection, or add parts to a connection for quoting purposes.
