Automation Nodes

Calculator

Calculator is a node that allows you to create and configure some automatic calculations. These calculations will be performed in parallel to the operation of the elements but will start after a certain trigger.

Calculator Node

Inputs

A node can have a huge number of input sockets depending on the complexity of the calculations.

Default Input Sockets

The current value have no default input sockets.

Additional Input Sockets

All input sockets accept values of the expression variables in the node. Those sockets can be added in default settings.

Outputs

Unlike the input sockets, the set of output sockets in the current node is small. Namely, the calculation has only one output socket.

Default Output Sockets

The default output socket allows you to pass a value to next sockets. That value is the result of a calculation in the node.

Name Data Type Description
Value value transmits the result of the calculation

Additional Output Sockets

There are no way to add additional output sockets.

Options

This node has two groups of setting which configures the expression and its arguments.

Default Settings

The first group of settings is designed to add different additional sockets.

Default settings of calculator

Name Description
Field Name allows to enter the name of the new variable; details...
Edit allows to edit or delete the option; details...
Notes allows to leave some notes in the node settings; details...

Field Name

This is the name of the created variable. It is used in the calculation and as a name of the input socket. This name is entered by you.

Edit

This column contains buttons for editing and deleting the variable.

Notes

This is the field for notes that will be saved in current settings. For example, you can enter here the destination of the current node.

Calculation Settings

These settings are responsible for the expression itself and some additional values.

Settings of the node calculation

Name Description
Additional values allows to add some static value to the calculation; details...
Calculation allows to select the type of the calculation; details...

Additional Values

This function allows you to add an unlimited number of static values for the following expression.

Calculation

As you may have guessed, here you can create the expression that will be used to calculate the value in the node. More precisely, you can assemble an expression from added variables, created constants and suggested mathematical symbols.
