ICE: Removing duplicates from arrays


Here’s an ICE tree that removes all duplicate elements from an array. It uses Generate Sample Set, so there’s no repeat nodes. But it relies on the fact that you can feed in an array of indices into Remove from Array, and Remove from Array doesn’t care if that array of indices itself contains duplicate. So, if you plug the array [1,1,1,2,2,2,3,3,3] in the Index port, Remove from Array will nicely remove elements 1, 2, and 3 with no complaints.

Unlike some other methods, this works with scalars too:
