Find Integer in NameAuthor: imding
A useful compound that converts any number from the object's name to an integer, making it accessible in ICE. Connect the compound to an execute port of the modeling stack, access the number using the »intValue« attribute. Can be used to automatically rearrange objects in a queue by just changing their name etc. Compound screenshot.

needed to make this for my creature's tail, hope it helps.

put a modeling ice tree on any mesh, connect this to execute port and then you can use intValue to access the integer found in name :D
