How to model a heater that automatically changes intensity?

March 4, 2012 | 10:19 pm

I’m working on a project where I want to automatically change the intensity of a heater, based on the brightness of the sun. I modeled the sun’s brightness with a drunk slider (0-100).

My project is still in a very theoretic fase, so it’s alright for me to just know which objects I should put in to make it work theoretically.
What object can I use to model the heater, for example?

(I’m new to Max6)
Thanks!

Explore the [scale] object. This can scale or reverse-scale the values of the slider to fit the range of numbers you need to control the heater. If you need a custom curve, then [function] is your friend.
