Hi,

[ ArcGIS PRO 1.3.1 ]

I'm a bit stuck with arcpy when adding a feature class in the Map_3D viewer as a layer. Basically I'm trying to emulate the same thing that happens when drag-n-dropping a FC into the Contents pane, resp. the Map_3D viewer.

Code so far ..

import arcpy
aprx = arcpy.mp.ArcGISProject(pPath + pName)

fc = gdbPath + gdbName + '/myFeatureClass'
lyr = arcpy.MakeFeatureLayer_management(fc, 'myLayer')

for map in aprx.listMaps():
   if map.mapType == 'SCENE':
      map.addLayer(lyr, add_position = 'AUTO_ARRANGE')

But this produces an error .. What am I missing?

Thanks for any input!

Matt

are your variables defined somewhere else? ppath, pname, gdbpath, gdbname etc

this seems like a question rather than a discussion

Hi,

Yes, they are defined as:

pPath            = project Path on disk (e.g. 'D:/..')

pName          = project file name ('.aprx')

gdbName      = path to GDB (usually sitting in the project path)

gdbName      = GDB name

It indeed may be more a question, sorry about that..

Well the reason I asked is because the error isn't specified and there is no way to check what it might be since the error may be due to the values of the parameters.

Ok, true. This is the error:
