Without a "tag", this would download the latest available image of Maya. You can explicitly specify a version with a tag.

$ docker run -ti --rm mottosso/maya:2016sp1

Images occupy around 5 gb of virtual disk space once installed, and about 1.5 gb of bandwidth to download.


This example will run the latest available version of Maya, create a new scene and save it in your current working directory.

$ docker run -ti -v $(pwd):/root/workdir --rm mottosso/maya
$ mayapy
>>> from maya import standalone, cmds
>>> standalone.initialize()
>>> cmds.file(new=True)
>>> cmds.polySphere(radius=2)
>>> cmds.file(rename="")
>>> cmds.file(save=True, type="mayaAscii")
>>> exit()
$ cp /root/maya/projects/default/scenes/ workdir/
$ exit
$ cat
