Create a Reference

The CreateReference command is a convenient wrapper that creates an Xform prim and adds a Reference to it all at once. If you don’t need the two steps batched together, you may want to Add a Reference to an existing prim via Kit Commands or USD API.

Omniverse Kit Commands

import omni.kit.commands
import omni.usd
from pxr import Sdf

    path_to=Sdf.Path("/World/New/Prim/Path"), # Prim path for where to create the reference
    asset_path=r"C:/path/to/file.usd", # The file path to reference. Relative paths are accepted too.
