Change item's type in a python script
#1
Hi,

Is it possible to change an item's type in a python script ?
I have a tool I am importing with SolidWorks plugin and when I drag and drop it to my robot its type is changed from object to tool, but when I import it and set its parent as a robot with a script, its type stays object.

What can I do to change its type at the same time I change its parent ?

Thanks,
Camille

Hi Jeremy,

I considered this option but the application I have requires the user to import a tool, a part and a curve from SolidWorks right now.
So I would prefer to avoid using two different importing settings for the user.

If there is no other choice, I will use this way, but I wanted to check before.

Thanks,
Camille

Hi Camille,

Can you update RDK to the latest version, I think that with the newest version the object should automatically become a tool when you set a robot as a parent. Can you confirm?
Otherwise, we will look into it.
