- Welcome to the Maya BonusTools Resource Page -
Here you will find links to installers, useful information, tutorials, demonstrations and updates related to Maya BonusTools. This page will be continually updated with new information, so bookmark it and check back later for more updates.
- BonusTools 2014 Installation -
The 2014 version of BonusTools is now available for download. Going forward we will be posting the installers on the new Autodesk Maya Apps Exchange -> BonusTools 2014 Installers. The Exchange is a portal hosted by Autodesk where you can get access to plugins that extend the functionality of various Autodesk products. There are now both Maya and Max centric pages on the Exchange.
NOTE: We have fixed the legacy issue with the BonusTools python scripts path. You no longer need to set this up manually. It is now done automatically, so all python based Bonus Tools should work imediately after installation.
- BonusTools 2014 Update -
We've had a few requests for the 3dsImport plugin which was not included in the 2014 version of BonusTools.
The compiled windows (mll) version of the plugin -> Windows 3dsImport Plugin
The compiled Mac (Bundle) version of the plugin -> Mac 3DsImport Plugin
Unzip the file and put the 3dsImport.mll (Win) or 3dsImport.bundle (Mac) file in the plugins folder where BonusTools 2014 is installed. See documentation for more details on installation location.
- Legacy BonusTools Installers -
BonusTools installers for older versions of Maya can still be found on the Area -> Legacy Maya BonusTools Installers - NEW LOCATION (Keep in mind that older versions will not contain all of the current toolset)
NOTE: In older versions of BonusTools python based tools will not work after the initial installation (e.g. Flatten Components.) Python scripts required an additional setup step for versions prior to 2014. See the BonusTools help docs for instructions on how to setup your Python search path. You only need to do this once and it should work from then on.
Fixes for the DrawSplit and DrawReduce tool are available for BonsuTools 2013. This update addresses an issue that was preventing the tools from being listed in the menu for MacOS as well as an issue with the default options for the tools. Put the contents of this zip file in the scripts folder of the BonusTools installation -> BonusTools 2013 Update1. These fixes are already integrated into the 2014 version.
