Dynamics Spring State

Basic Node Parameter

Parameter

Input ports

On

Turns the Node’s effect on or off.

Object

Add Connectors or Springs here.

Object Index [0..2147483647]

Internally, all Connectors/Spring in the Project are numbered. Use this input setting to access individual Connectors/Springs.

Broken

This mode can be used to break (enabled) or ,repair’ (activate option again) a Spring.

Linear Plastic Elongation [-∞..+∞m]
Angular Plastic Elongation [-∞..+∞°]

Use these modes to define deformations along the length of a Spring (elongation) or for its rotation (angular).

Output ports

Count [-2147483648..2147483647]

If the Object field is empty and receives no data via the Input port, the total number of Connectors/Springs in the project will be displayed here.

Broken

The boolean value defined here will depend on whether the Spring is operational 0 or broken 1.

Object
Object A
Object B
Object Index A [-2147483648..2147483647]
Object Index B [-2147483648..2147483647]

This is where the selected object as well as both objects or object indices (for cloned Springs) linked to the Connector/Spring will be attached.

Tag A
Tag B

The Dynamics Body Tags of the objects linked to the Connector are be attached to these Output ports.

Linear Plastic Elongation [-∞..+∞m]
Angular Plastic Elongation [-∞..+∞°]

Use these modes to define deformations along the length of a Spring (elongation) or for its rotation (angular).
