Hi guys,

I am trying to write a script which creates a side panel for extra buttons which will trigger some python functions. I stuck with simply thing like open project/graph sbs with python. I have trouble to find any function/method which will help me to do that.

 

I am using latest version of Adobe Substance 3D Designer v 11.3.3 (2022-01-20).

The tool provides Scripting Documentation under Help tab. The documentation is a file which is located on my drive, it was installed together with Substance 3D Designer.

 

I quickly found the documentation is much larger but what Designer provides is much less. Most of the functions/methods got different names and a lot of them are missing in the tool.

 

Is there any proper website page which provides ALL actual Python API for Adobe Substance 3D Designer?

 

Any help will be super handy,

Thanks,
Bart

Feel free to provide some examples of the missing components you mentioned, so I can investigate.

 

Best regards.

Hi Luca,

 

yes I found that the same day after I created this post.

I also found some sample codes from Substance Designer which is pretty handy.

 

Thanks anyway!
