Accessing custom toolbar using arcpy in python

Hello community! I am using a tool developed by the US Forest Service (Build LCP) using their custom toolbar (LANDFIRE Data Access Tool, you can Google it). The tool takes as inputs several rasters and converts them into a different format (.LCP) used in fire simulation models. I would like to incorporate this tool in a python script, but I don't know how to access the tool. It is NOT in a toolbox, it is a custom toolbar tool. There is a dll associated with the tool. I've tried using the ctypes module to load and run the dll directly, but to no avail. I also tried converting the dll into an arctool, but that did not work either.

 

Any help on figuring out how to incorporate this custom tool into a python script would be amazing...

 

I am using ArcGIS Desktop 10.0 (I could upgrade to 10.2.2 if need be) with an ArcInfo license.

 

Thanks very much!
