How to judge the type of variable in python?

I need to judge the type of the input variable when I use rhinoscriptsyntax so that I can convert those geometry objects to Guid perversely and avoid some TypeError in the program. But it returns a problem when I just directly use the name of the type like this:

if type(x) == Point3d:

So I want to know how to judge the type of geometry like Point3d, Curve, and also Guid. I think that might hide in another library. I hop that someone can offer some help to me.

The Point3d type is from the Rhino.Geometry namespace:

import Rhino

x = Rhino.Geometry.Point3d(1,2,3)
print type(x)==Rhino.Geometry.Point3d

Thanks!But I also want to know where the Guid type is. It seems not in the geometry namespace.

The Guid type is part of .NET, it is found in the System namespace.

It’s a universal unique identifier, often used in for instance game engines to keep track of stuff in the scene and beyond.
