Am I doing this wrong? I need to create hillshades for a set of raster, but I want the hillshades to retain the raster's original name. I used parse path for that, however there are names that are more than 13 characters so I used calculate value to edit the names. I used the expression r"%Value%".replace("-",""). It worked, I could see from the output that the value changed, however the hillshade does not adopt the naming even if I used %Value%. enter image description here

Here is my model. I preconditioned everything so that the hillshade will be the last process. enter image description here

From your graphic it looks like you should use %output_value%, instead of %Value%? Value is the original name of the raster.
