Source Code for Module Types

 1  # The Blender.Types submodule 
 3  """ 
 4  The Blender.Types submodule 
 5  =========================== 
 7  This module is a dictionary of Blender Python types, for type checking. 
 9  Example:: 
10    import Blender 
11    from Blender import Types, Object, NMesh, Camera, Lamp 
12    # 
13    objs = Object.Get() # a list of all objects in the current scene 
14    for o in objs: 
15      print 
16      print o, type(o) 
17      data = o.getData() 
18      print type(data) 
19      if type(data) == Types.NMeshType: 
20        if len(data.verts): 
21          print "its vertices are obviously of type:", type(data.verts[0]) 
22        print "and its faces:", Types.NMFaceType 
23      elif type(data) == Types.CameraType: 
24        print "It's a Camera." 
25      elif type(data) == Types.LampType: 
26        print "Let there be light!" 
28  Since Blender 2.48a you can get the size of the underlying DNA structs for a collection of Blender Python types. 
30  Example:: 
31    # loop over Types dictionary and print the struct sizes 
32    # -1 where the type is not supported byt the CSizeof function 
33    import Blender.Types as bt 
34    x = dir(bt) 
35    for t in x: 
36      s = 'bt.CSizeof(bt.' + t + ')' 
37      print t,"=", eval(s) 
39  @var ObjectType: Blender Object. The base object, linked to its specific data 
40       at its .data member variable.

42  @var NMeshType: Blender NMesh. The mesh structure. 
43  @var NMFaceType: Blender NMFace. A mesh face, with one (a point), two (an edge), 
44       three (a triangular face) or four (a quad face) vertices.

50  @var MEdgeType: Blender MEdge. A mesh edge, with two vertices 
51  @var MVertType: Blender MVert. A mesh vertex which wraps a Blender mesh vertex 
52       (typically an object returned from the mesh.verts sequence). 
53  @var PVertType: Blender MVert. A mesh vertex which does not wrap a Blender 
54       mesh vertex (returned from L{Blender.Mesh.MVert()<Mesh.MVert.__init__>}).
