Blender 2.5x python script to combine objects in scene

I am using blender 2.54.

Please write a python script that would place 3d model of simple object such as a box ( named item.blend) on the ground floor of main scene file ( named main.blend) . Main scene can be any simple scene (like a really simple room) that has ground floor.

Please also include the .blend files in your solution. Again these are really simple scenes or you may already have such .blend files.

The script must run from the command line ( Not starting blender UI and typing the script within blender UI).

Please provide solution if you have python programming experience with blender.

This is not a homework project. I am learning 3d programming in the context of blender.

Hi you can use this code:

hope this works.
import bpy

blendfilepath = "/tmp/untitled.blend"
objectname = "Cube"

res = bpy.ops.wm.link_append(directory=blendfilepath + "/Object/",filename=objectname, link=False, instance_groups=False)
if list(res)[0] == 'FINISHED':
    print("Successfully imported!")
else:
    print("There was an error!")

Open in new window

Also if you have multiple Objects and want to import them, first create a group and add all objects to that group. then in 4th line use name of the created group instead of "Cube" and in 6th line use "/Group/" instead of "/Object/".

For example if i had 3 Objects in "Cubes" group in a.blend then i can use this code
res = bpy.ops.wm.link_append(directory=blendfilepath + "/Group/",filename="Cubes", link=False, instance_groups=False)

Open in new window

As python API of blender 2.5 is currenly unstable use http://www.blender.org/documentation/250PythonDoc/bpy.ops.wm.html#bpy.ops.wm.link_append for future refs.
