How to get FaceSet information from a python addon?

Hello,

I would like to improve my addon (QuadRemesher) by using the FaceSets created by the user.
I don’t find a way to get access to the FaceSets (tags assigned to each face).
How can I access FaceSet information from my python script ?

Thanks!

I am looking for information on this as well. Is it possible to access the Sculpt facesets?

thanks

Hello,
I’d like to bump this topic since I found a diff that addresses this feature, but it was never added or fully reviewed: https://developer.blender.org/D10862
I recently downloaded quadremesher, and using face sets would be extremely helpful. Any devs who are willing to look into it again would be greatly appreciated.

I’m bumping this topic again—as stated before, being able to use face sets would be extremely helpful for a number of addon developers. It would be a shame to have this contributor’s code go to waste (link in previous post).

There’s a new patch by Sculpt module developer that seems to supersede it: ⚙ D15025 Expose Face Sets In Python API
