- BonusTools 2015 Installation -
The 2014 and 2015 version of BonusTools is available for download. Installers are posted on the Autodesk Maya Apps Exchange -> BonusTools 2014/2015 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.
NOTE: There is an important bug fix in Maya 2015 Service Pack 2 that affects a number of BonusTools that use the HeadsUpDisplay buttons -> Maya SP 2
Maya 2014 3dsImport plugins
The 3dsImport plugin is included in the 2015 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 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.
