I'm new to Blender and I'm trying to create a 3d scene starting from a csv file. I explain my problem: I have some 3d objects that I append in the scene with this function:

import bpy

directory= "C:/Users/Valentina/Desktop/ku/stadium.blend\\Object\\" , 
filepath= "stadium.blend" ,  
filename= "stadium")

stadium is the 3d element that I have to put in the virtual scene. If I create a csv file like this:

name; path
stadium; directory= "C:/Users/Valentina/Desktop/ku/stadium.blend\\Object\\" , filepath= "stadium.blend" , filename= "stadium"

cinema; directory= "C:/Users/Valentina/Desktop/ku/cinema.blend\\Object\\" , filepath= "cinema.blend" , filename= "cinema"


Will I be able to import the 3d object in the scene by reading the csv file? For example:

import csv
with open ('my_file.csv', 'r') as f:
   r= csv reader(f, delimiter =';')
   for row in r:

Am I totally wrong?

    $\begingroup$ The CSV seems to be broken. Your file looks like it uses semicolon-space as a separator first, and then comma-space. You also use equals-space, making it even harder to parse this file. $\endgroup$

With a text file like this:



  • First field: a name
  • Second field: the complete path to your object
  • Third field: your object name

You can:

import bpy
import csv

textFile = 'E:\\Blender\\yourpath\\import.txt'

with open( textFile, 'r' ) as file:
    reader = csv.reader( file, delimiter = ';' )
    for row in reader:
        bpy.ops.wm.append( directory=row[1], filename=row[2] )
  • $\begingroup$ Hi! It doesn't work! :( Do you know the problem? the console says: nothing indicated. I posted an image above. p.s. Is it better a .txt file and not a .csv file? $\endgroup$ Commented Feb 27, 2017 at 10:13

  • $\begingroup$ The file extension does not matter so much here. But the content of it matters. Could you indicate a link for it or simply past its content in the comments? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ OK... if I understand well it works? A possibility: add a "try except" around the wm.append, because some of the blend files or objects may be not found $\endgroup$
