Using the dismantle function when you have multiple different containers and entities

Hi! I have a model which contains multiple different containers and entities. So container_A contains 10 of Entity_A, Container_B contains 20 of Entity_B, Container_C contains 17 of Entity_C, etc etc.

I would like to use the dismantle element so that when container_A enters the dismantling, the 10 Entity_A will come out and similarly for all the other different types of containers.

I've tried to create a table with the different type of containers and entities and tried to add them as targets and tried with some methods but nothing seems to work for me.

you dont need to program, try this setting in the dismantle station:

Re: Using the dismantle function when you have multiple different containers and entities

Thanks for your reply! I'm not sure how exactly I can apply this to a single dismantling station.

 

If I have a table with my three containers and a table with my 3 entities, how can I then define on the dismantling station that if it receives one container_A then it needs to send out 10 entity_A and similarly if it receives one container_B it needs to send out 20 entity_B, etc.?

 

I should mention that at the beginning of my model, I am assuming that the containers have the number of entities specified in them. I haven't actually told my model anywhere how many entities are inside the containers as I'm not sure how I'm supposed to do that.

If you have put some entities into a container (with an Assembly object for instance), then the DismantleStation will take them off them again, no need to specify anything in particular. Try it!

It works perfectly, thanks @Nomden and @Steffen_B!
