API or Script to Renumber tools

Hello, I was wondering if it was possible to write a program or script that could change the tool numbers for my tools. I'm well aware the methods build into fusion to accomplish this but I want something I little more powerful. I know the API features on the CAM side are lackluster for the time being, but basically I'm just wondering if this is possible before I start investing time into creating it.

 

Thanks!

It's not currently possible.  Nothing associated with tooling is exposed through the API.

That's what I thought but I figured I'd ask. Thanks.

Is this still the case in 2022?

 

I'm looking to use a Python script to simply compile all of the tool numbers being used in a file. It looks like I can't access the parameter for the tool in an operation:

I don't need any other info about the tool, just it's number. Worst case I can use the API to generate a setup sheet and then pull the numbers from the HTML file, but I would much prefer if it's possible to access them directly from the API...

This still is not available. Hopefully soon.

There appears to be at least some level of availability/connection to the tooling info - after playing around a bit more I'm able to use the 'tool_number' and 'tool_diameter' parameters with no issue. I haven't tried anything else, but it is available to some extent.
