I need a python script that takes an object, moves it down, separates it into loose parts, sets the origins to geometry and deletes 1 object that is left below Z=0. So far I've cobbled together this code from different posts but when it comes to selecting the lower object all the results I get are talking about vertices and not objects themselves. Can anyone help me with this? At the end of this code all the objects are already selected and not in a specific collection so maybe deselecting anything above Z=0 would work better before deleting the last object. The code shouldn't affect non selected objects in the scene, not sure if that's relevant

import bpy

#Move down
bpy.ops.transform.translate(value=(0.0, 0.0, -20.0), orient_type='GLOBAL')

# Separate the selected objects by disconnected geometry

# Get the selected objects
separated_obj_names = [obj.name for obj in bpy.context.view_layer.objects.selected]

#origins to geometry

You can try bpy.data.batch_remove([o for o in bpy.context.selected_objects if o.location[2] < 0]).
