The calculator functionality in HEEDS MDO has been redeveloped using Python. The new calculator implementation provides significant enhancements over the previous releases. These new enhancements allow you to setup complex formulas with ease without requiring use of an external script or tool. The key advantages over earlier releases are provided below:
- Easily define complex formulas by breaking up the formula onto several lines by using temporary variables. You can even use comments within the formula definition.
- Include logic in your formulas
- Access any value or set of values from a response array
- Extend the calculator by creating your own custom functions to use in all subsequent projects.
