DirectConnect for Maya 2017

DirectConnect for Maya 2017

Autodesk, Inc.

Digitally signed app




Starting with Autodesk® Maya® 2017 Direct Connect has been replaced by ATF (Autodesk Translation Framework). ATF in the Maya implementation has some limitations relative to Direct Connect.


ATF was introduced with Maya 2016 Extension 2 but the Direct Connect plug-in was kept for users with a previous Direct Connect install. Since Direct Connect is not available for new Maya 2017 users, the plug-in was removed in the latest version.


This plug-in is here to fill the gap with the previous implementation. It is a python plug-in which can work with an existing Direct Connect on all supported platforms.


Available on Windows, and Mac OSX

    load function does not work while autoload does. With implementation there is still no way to import .dwg files into maya

  • It can't get loaded in Maya2017 Plugin Manager

    "Auto Load" box is available while the "Loaded" option is invalid, even after removing and reinstallation. 

    Error message prompt by Maya2017:
    // Error: line 1:  (DirectConnect) //
    // Error: line 1: RuntimeError: file C:/ProgramData/Autodesk/ApplicationPlugins/DirectConnect/Contents/plug-ins/ line 227: aruba failed: aruba.exe: failed to get valid license. //
    // Warning: line 1: Failed to call script initialize function //

    Autodesk, please debug.
