Changing feature class type of existing feature class using python

Question asked by SeBenZa on Oct 6, 2018

I have an empty point feature class in a file geodatabase. I also need an exact copy of this in a line and polygon feature class type (in the same file geodatabase).


I am unable to identify any tools or arcpy workflows that allow me to change an existing empty feature class type.


An export to shapefile will remove all the subtypes and long field names and field alias.


I use ArcGIS Pro 2.2 - Advanced license level.


My hope was a python code with the following flow:

- Create a copy of the existing point feature class in the same file geodatabase

- Changing feature class type to line/polygon



Any help is greatly appreciated.
