Providing multiple inputs to Create TIN tool in ArcPy?

Question asked by isaac.remboldt_NebraskaDNR on Apr 18, 2019

The documentation has a field where you can list the name of your shape, the field, and other variables, but does not give examples of multiple features. The standalone tool supports multiple features.

CreateTin_3d (out_tin, {spatial_reference}, {in_features}, {constrained_delaunay})


arcpy.CreateTin_3d("NewTIN", "NAD 1983 StatePlane California II FIPS 0402 (Feet).prj",                     "points.shp Shape.Z masspoints", "constrained_delaunay")

I have tried to create a value table with the following code, but it does not seem to take it as a valid parameter:

XSEC = arcpy.GetParameterAsText(0) value_table = arcpy.ValueTable(2) value_table.addRow(XSEC + "1")# Local variables:Points = ""Output_TIN = "C:\\Users\\....."# Process: Add Surface Informationarcpy.AddSurfaceInformation_3d(Points, Input_Surface, "", "LINEAR", "", "1", "0", "NO_FILTER") value_table.addRow(Points + "2")# Process: Create TINarcpy.CreateTin_3d(Output_TIN, "", value_table, "CONSTRAINED_DELAUNAY")

This GeoNet thread is the closest I have found for a solution, but it does not appear to let the user set the Height field or the Type field as a script/tool parameter.
