Often, Houdini can resolve name conflicts automatically (for example, if you try to create a node named
sphere1 and a node with that name already exists, by default most API calls will create a node named
sphere2 instead). In cases where a naming conflict prevents an API call from working, and it can’t be automatically resolved (or automatic resolution is an option you have disabled in an argument), Houdini will raise this exception.
