LAS to Raster conversion

I'm having a problem setting the interpolation type in the arcpy.LasDatasetToRaster_conversion python code...I wish to use:

Triangulation, LINEAR, NO_THINNING as the options...

however there appears to be no choice when hovering over interpolation type in the python window and I receive the runtime error "Cannot set input into parameter interpolation_type when using 'TRIANGULATION LINEAR WINDOW_SIZE 10' as described in the ArcGIS 10.1 help guide: http://resources.arcgis.com/en/help/main/10.1/index.html#//001200000052000000

The guide talks about arcpy.LasDatasetToRaster_3d in the python window (this doesn't appear to exist...I have checkout out 3D analyst) and arcpy.conversion.LasDatasetToRaster for the standalone python script brings the same runtime error...

Is this a known ESRI bug or am I doing something wrong??? Any help would be much appreciated,
