I'm trying to add objects to previously created groups from a Python script.

What do I do?


It is actually pretty simple:

import bpy

grp = bpy.data.groups.get('bacon')

obj = bpy.data.objects['Cube']

This avoid the hassle of setting up the context for bpy.ops operators.


You can do as follows:

  1. Make the desired object active
  2. Assign it to an existing group

    bpy.context.scene.objects.active = bpy.data.objects['Your Object']
    bpy.ops.object.group_link(group='Your Group')

    $\begingroup$ It's better to not use operators in Python scripts, if possible. See Mutant Bob's answer to see how it can also be done. $\endgroup$ – dr. Sybren Nov 25 '17 at 17:11
