  • $\begingroup$ That sounds perfect, but I'm really sure what the "3d curser" is. I can't see it in the view. Do you know how toI access it in python? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ in 2.8 it is bpy.context.scene.cursor.location, see documentation for current python api: docs.blender.org/api/current/index.html $\endgroup$
