ICE troubleshooting with Show Values

Troubleshooting doesn’t have to be fancy. Sometimes you just have to focus in on a specific part of an ICE Tree, and use Show Values to understand what is going on.

For example, as part of a larger ICE tree, I was using Test in Geometry and Get Set Sum as described by gray on xsibase (reply #8). But I wasn’t getting the result I expected.

So I broke out the Test in Geometry and Get Set Sum branch into a simple test scene, and used Show Values to help understand what was going on. As you can see in these screenshots, Get Set Sum is giving me different results based on the set I feed into it.

If I start with a set of Bools per Point and use an If node to map those boolean to integer values, I don’t get the result I expect.
