How do you export a model created in ModelBuilder to a python script within ArcGIS Pro?

So Dan are you saying you can't export a model directly to a python script from ModelBuilder in ArcGIS Pro. You must save it back and open in ArcMap and then export? I hope that is not true.

I am sure you have tried what I did:

  • tried the same as in ArcMap 10.3   nope
  • tried the save as option in Pro   nope, no option to save as anything other than a new name
  • tried right-clicking on the model in the Project window   nope ... lots of stuff, but not
  • tried to find it in the list of things that aren't in Pro   nope...can't find a mention of this not being carried forward
  • wellll... maybe we were supposed to use 10.3 to save it   .... I will leave that for others to report... I never use modelbuilder anyway, except for the cool picture it creates of the workflow     use python in conjunction with Results window (Now...did I ever find that window???)

I found this on the Esri support page. Looks like they did remove this functionality.

I have posted an idea to have it added back at https://c.na9.visual.force.com/apex/ideaView?id=087E0000000fxXa&returnUrl=%2Fapex%2FideaList%3Fc%3D0...

Of course you realize that it won't happen anytime soon since everything is being phased it...sigh

Sadly yes, I know you are right.

I added my vote to ArcGIS Idea - Add Export Model to Python Script back to ArcGIS Pro.

You guys are too pessimistic. The ArcToolbox window was saved in Arc 10 because of similar user appeals. They do change their mind sometimes and reverse course!
