I have a Blender python script in my Blender file

import bpy

and an external .py file in the same directory as the .blend file.

variable = "spam"

I want to import the external file into Blender using a relative path.

You can append the path to your script

import bpy, sys
import myscript

  • $\begingroup$ This code is for if the script is in the same directory as the script calling it. Is that not the case? $\endgroup$ – cmomoney Jan 7 '17 at 18:16
  • $\begingroup$ no, because it is in the same directory as the .blend file but not IN the .blend file $\endgroup$ – froggyman Jan 7 '17 at 18:23
