bpy.ops.rigidbody.object_add(type='ACTIVE')

Add active object as Rigid Body

Parameters

type (enum in ['ACTIVE', 'PASSIVE'], (optional)) –

Rigid Body Type

  • ACTIVE Active, Object is directly controlled by simulation results.

  • PASSIVE Passive, Object is directly controlled by animation system.

bpy.ops.rigidbody.object_remove()

Remove Rigid Body settings from Object

bpy.ops.rigidbody.object_settings_copy()

Copy Rigid Body settings from active object to selected

File

startup/bl_operators/rigidbody.py:61

bpy.ops.rigidbody.objects_add(type='ACTIVE')

Add selected objects as Rigid Bodies

Parameters

type (enum in ['ACTIVE', 'PASSIVE'], (optional)) –

Rigid Body Type

  • ACTIVE Active, Object is directly controlled by simulation results.

  • PASSIVE Passive, Object is directly controlled by animation system.

bpy.ops.rigidbody.objects_remove()
