Build Documentation Status

To build the library on Windows, clone the repository and navigate to the cloned directory, then run the following commands:

mkdir build
cd build
cmake ../. -G "Visual Studio 16 2019 Win64"

This will generate a Visual Studio solution you can use to build.

To build the library on OSX or Linux use the following commands:

mkdir build
cd build
cmake ../. -G "CodeBlocks - Unix Makefiles"

The build looks for Maya in the default installation directory for each platform, however you can always provide it with a custom path:


Likewise, the build defaults to Maya version 2022, this can be changed as follows:


Please note that the lowest supported version is 2019.


To install the library on OSX or Linux run the following command:

make install

By default the resulting module gets installed under dist folder in the current source directory.

To make the module available in Maya, add the install location to MAYA_MODULE_PATH environment variable or copy the module to a directory already in the module path.

The install location can also be changed as follows:



In order to run the test suite, execute the mayapy interpreter and pass the tests directory as an argument, for example:

/Applications/Autodesk/maya2018/ tests
