tyCollection Helper

The tyCollection helper allows you to create a list of objects that can be input into a flow as a single object (the tyCollection object itself), as opposed to adding the same list of objects to multiple operators manually.

Instead of manually managing large groups of objects shared between multiple tyFlow operators, which can be a tedious process, simply input the list of objects into a tyCollection and then add the tyCollection to the operators instead. When the list of objects in a tyCollection is changed, all relevant operators will be sent the updated object list automatically.


Parameters

Objects
  • Objects: the list of tyCollection objects.
Layers
  • Enable import by layer: enables the import of objects into the tyCollection by layer name.

  • Layers: the names of the layers whose objects will be imported into the tyCollection.

For multiple layer names, separate names with commas (ex: “Layer001, Layer002, Layer003”)

By name
  • Enable import by name: enables the import of objects into the tyCollection by name.

  • Names: the names of the objects which will be imported into the tyCollection.

Asterisks can be used as name wildcards (ex: “Sphere” to import Sphere001, Sphere002, Sphere003, etc). For multiple object names, separate names with commas (ex: “Sphere, Box001, Cylinder00*“)/

Display
  • Show icon: controls whether the tyCollection icon is displayed in the viewport.

  • Icon size: controls the size of the tyCollection icon.
