Tools installation


Installing our tools is easy and requires only few steps:

2. Installing the tool.

If you are planning to use one of our tools in a studio, we would be grateful if you could let us know.




1. Registering on the website and downloading the tool.

First off, register on our website.
Once registered, download the tool you want from the tool webpage.
Please stay logged in as you'll need to be when requesting licenses for commercial tools.



2. Installing the tool.

Unzip the file you just downloaded, then follow the instructions for your operative system.


Double-click on the installer and follow these instructions:

windows_installer_warnings1a
windows_installer_warnings2
windows_installer

The installer copies the tool folder with the plugins, scripts and icons inside:

  • C:\Program Files\Toolchefs\

And it copies the maya module inside:

  • C:\Program Files\Common Files\Alias Shared\Modules\maya\
  • C:\Users\USER\Documents\maya\modules

Right Click on the installer and then select "Open With->Installer". WARNING: Simply double clicking may not work depending on your OS settings.

Run the installer.

os_installer

The installer copies the tool folder with the plugins, scripts and icons inside:

  • /Applications/Toolchefs

And it copies the maya module inside:

  • /Users/Shared/Autodesk/modules/maya/

Extract the folder that is in the zip you've just download and copy it inside "/opt/toolchefs/".

Then copy the .module file in one of these folder:

/home/YOUR_USER_NAME/maya/modules
/home/YOUR_USER_NAME/maya/201X-x64/modules
/usr/autodesk/maya201X-x64/modules
/usr/autodesk/modules/maya/201X
/usr/autodesk/modules/maya

If the modules folder doesn't exist, create it.

If you want to install the plugin in a different location, please change the paths inside the .module file.

You're ready to go!

Load the plug-in in your application (in Maya use the plug-in editor) and have fun!
