!! BonusTools is now available for Maya LT 2016 !!
BonusTools has consistently been one of the most requested improvements on the Maya LT forums. You can now download the installation pachage here -> MayaLT_2016_BonusTools.
Note: The installation process for Maya LT is different. See the README.txt file in the zip folder for instruction on how to install.
Note 2: The install package was updated on 2/1/16 with a fix to a bug that was found with the Auto Unwrap UVs Tool. This fix only applies to Maya LT.
Maya BonusTools 2016 Installation
The Maya 2014-2016 installer for BonusTools is available for download on the Autodesk Maya Apps Exchange -> BonusTools 2014-2016 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 both Maya and Max centric pages on the Exchange.
BonusTools 2016 Bux Fixes
There is a bug with the new "BonusTools -> Display -> Floating Frame Rate" tool that was inadvertantly affecting the ability to undo. It has been fixed in the following script. Simply download and save/copy this script to the BonusTools python-2016 folder (e.g. "C:/ProgramData/Autodesk/ApplicationPlugins/MayaBonusTools/Contents/python-2016"). You can now use "BonusTools -> Help -> Go to BonusTools Install Location" to find the specific folder on you computer.

Maya 2014 3dsImport plugins
The 3dsImport plugin is included in the 2016 installation. However it was inadvertantly left out of the 2014 installation. You can get the precompiled plugins for that version here...
Legacy BonusTools Installers
BonusTools installers for older versions of Maya (pre-2014) can still be found on the Area -> Legacy Maya BonusTools Installers. Keep in mind that older versions will not contain all of the tools that were added in later releases.
