I am trying to learn python for blender, following this and many other things online. https://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Blender_3D:_Noob_to_Pro/Advanced_Tutorials/Python_Scripting/Addon_Anatomy

I open the scripting editor, copy and paste the "complete script" And run the script. The script dont give me any error, but i cant find it in the search menu operator.

What am i missing? enter image description here

    $\begingroup$ If you want working examples of python scripts, you can always dig into the templates (next to Format on the top of the text editor). For example the Simple operator presents a minimum working example of an operator. From there you can expand bit by bit until your own operator works. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Can you run the operator from the console, like this? bpy.ops.mesh.make_tetrahedron('INVOKE_DEFAULT') $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Yes this script make return the output true to the console, so the operator is in blender. Joonas resolved the problem, there is a checkbox to be able to find extra-script!!! $\endgroup$

The code works just as it is supposed to work. You just need to enable Operator Search to use it. You need to select Edit -> Preferences. Under Interface check Developer Extras checkbox.

Developer Extras

Now you can find Operator Search from Edit drop down menu.

Operator Search

Search Add Tetrahedron

Add tetrahedron

Result

Errors

You can select Window -> Toggle System Console to see the errors your code gives.

Toggle System Console

  • $\begingroup$ @Est Silly me. I should have read the code info first before assuming too much. Sorry about that. I edited the answer and it should work as it's supposed to work. $\endgroup$
