Custom Sink like other Fixed Resource ?

Hello !

To conclude my user library I would like to develop custom Sinks.

The idea behind that is just to have different Entry triggers for two Sinks.

One would be for "Good Output" and the other for "Bad Output". Unfortunately I could not find a Sink in the "Toolbox>Process Flow>Fixed Resource". I tried modelling it with the following process flow:

It kind of works as the flowitems enters the "Sink" and do not get out, but they are not destroyed, although I added the Sink activity. I can click on them and drag them around the view.

Yet it looks to me that I am overdoing it and also not so accurately...

Hence my question: Is there a way to do a custom Sink just like other Fixed Resource and if not, why is it that the flowitems in my model with the Sink process Flow described above are not destroyed ?

The Sink activity destroys the token in the Process Flow, not the item in the 3D view. To destroy the object you need to add a Destroy Object activity before the Sink.
