In this video, explore nodes that take numbers as inputs but produce other data types. Examples include testing whether one number is greater than another, which results in a Boolean data type.
- [Narrator] In the last video,…we looked at how to use Dynamo to perform math functions,…taking a few numbers as an input…and producing another number as an output.…Now we're going to look at how Dynamo can perform…a few more mathematical functions…but output other data types instead of numbers.…We'll start with the less than node,…which is in the Math Operator section of the node library.…Just like the addition node, this node asks for two inputs,…an x and a y, now if we wanted to,…we could place two more number nodes onto the canvas,…but Dynamo allows the output of a node…to be fed into the inputs of as many nodes as we'd like.…
So let's connect the two number nodes…that we already have on our canvas…to the inputs of this less than node.…I'll connect our five to the x input and 9.8 to the y.…If we take a look at the node preview,…you can see that the output of this node…is a Boolean data type, which again,…is either the value of true or false.…This node is asking the question, is x less than y?…In our case, it's asking…
