Autodesk Maya Bonus Tools 2018-2022

Digitally signed app



Bonus Tools 2018/2022 is a free collection of useful Maya scripts and plug-ins. After installing Bonus Tools, an additional pull-down menu will be added to the end of the main Maya menu. This menu provides easy access to a variety of tools and utilities for daily use. Maya Bonus Tools has been organized to mimic the layout of the standard Maya menu sets. Each sub-menu contains a number of related tools. Each of these can be torn off and floated just like standard Maya menus.


Before installing BonusTools 2022, older versions of Maya BonusTools should be uninstalled first in order to avoid conflicts.


** Warning:  The new SpeedCut tool will crash on Linux/Mac but is working as expected on Windows. **


New Tools


• Modeling -> Speed Cut (windows only)

• Modeling -> Extrude Instance Mesh


Updated Tools


• Rigging -> Weight Editor


Retired Tools


• Windows -> Scene Assembly Manager  (obsolete)

• Modeling -> Curve to Tube Mesh(replaced by Sweep Mesh)

• Modeling -> Curve to Ribbon Mesh(replaced by Sweep Mesh)

• Precompiled legacy Devkit examples (removed for stability reasons)


Note: In order to support the app from shared network drives the MAYA_PACKAGE_PATH environment variable needs to be set to point to the directory that contains PackageContents.xml.

    Branden Brushett | August 25, 2020 Geprüfter Download (Was ist das?)

    It was working for me for a while. But then just stopped suddenly. I've tried to Repair, Reinstall but I get the same warning message when going into UV Editing Unwrap. 

    // Warning: "C:/ProgramData/Autodesk/ApplicationPlugins/MayaBonusTools-2017-2020/Contents/scripts-2018/bt_autoUnwrapUVTool.mel" line 1731.56 : Redeclaration of variable "$buttonNumber" shadows previous declaration at line 1653. Previous value will be overwritten by explicit initializer.

    Sent message to tech support but never heard back.

    Works fine in 2017, but I also want it to work in 2016, which is also installed on my Mac, but the "universal installer" provided ignores it, and does not install bonus tools to the older installed version of Maya.
