I'd like to enable the rigid body settings for a set of objects, and I don't want to use bpy.ops.rigid_body.object_add(). I see that objects have the property object.rigid_body, which is read-only. So how do I create the rigid body settings, and assign them to object.rigid_body?


This question is related to How do I add a rigidbody to an object with python?.

In 2.8 you need to use collections, so if you want to add rigid body physics to object my_object for scene 'Scene':


and verify outcome with

my_object.rigid_body is not None
