Hi; again thanks for all the responses to past inquiries as I ramp up with Tinderbox.
I’m using Tinderbox in a way that is exciting, at least to me as an engineer. I am using the map display to show a hierarchical system power analysis. It’s a nice way to not have to separately use excel, then a separate manual drawing too.
Problem I have (I’m sure easily solved) is to get an attribute from one note, and use it as part of math in another note that is not in the same hierarchy. I have agents outside the hierarchy that do some math and then (ideally) put those results back in a note inside the system hierarchy. For example, the agent calculates a total $Power in watts from a sum of captured notes; then I want to send that $Power to another block to use.
I realize a link may be able to do this, but I haven’t been able to make links work to transfer numbered attributes (my own naiveness).
Thanks if anyone can help. I’m hoping to put the completed analysis in a tutorial or example of a way to use Tinderbox in visual engineering.
