Is it possible to isolate a component via API?

I'm trying to isolate a component via API in order to export a thumbnail using Viewport.saveAsImageFile(filename, width, height). I've hundreds of component, so I need to do that programmatically.


In the API reference I cannot find any method to accomplish this simple task.


Any help is appreciated.

@luca.giorcelli9CG7C here are few references I found related to isolation of component.

Also, refer to below sample code where in I created two components and then isolated one and performed unisolate operation on the same component.


import adsk.core, adsk.fusion, traceback
import time
def run(context):
    ui = None
        app = adsk.core.Application.get()
        ui = app.userInterface
        # Create a document.
        doc = app.documents.add(adsk.core.DocumentTypes.FusionDesignDocumentType)
        product = app.activeProduct
        design = adsk.fusion.Design.cast(product)

        # Get the root component of the active design
        rootComp = design.rootComponent
        # Get extrude features
        extrudes = rootComp.features.extrudeFeatures

        # Create sketch     
        sketches = rootComp.sketches   
        sketch = sketches.add(rootComp.xZConstructionPlane)
        sketchCircles = sketch.sketchCurves.sketchCircles
        centerPoint = adsk.core.Point3D.create(0, 0, 0)
        circle = sketchCircles.addByCenterRadius(centerPoint, 5.0)
        # Get the profile defined by the circle
        prof = sketch.profiles.item(0)
        # Create another sketch
        sketchVertical = sketches.add(rootComp.yZConstructionPlane)
        sketchCirclesVertical = sketchVertical.sketchCurves.sketchCircles
        centerPointVertical = adsk.core.Point3D.create(0, 10, 0)
        cicleVertical = sketchCirclesVertical.addByCenterRadius(centerPointVertical, 0.5)    
        # Get the profile defined by the vertical circle
        profVertical = sketchVertical.profiles.item(0)

        distance = adsk.core.ValueInput.createByReal(5)
        extrude1 = extrudes.addSimple(prof, distance, adsk.fusion.FeatureOperations.NewComponentFeatureOperation)

        distance2 = adsk.core.ValueInput.createByReal(5)
        extrude2 = extrudes.addSimple(profVertical, distance2, adsk.fusion.FeatureOperations.NewComponentFeatureOperation)

        occ1 = rootComp.allOccurrences.item(0)
        occ1.isIsolated = True

        ui.messageBox('Component 1 isloated. It will be unisolated on OK')

        occ1.isIsolated = False

It was so simple!!!



But where is located this command in the API reference?
