Installing a Python Script in Maya

Many tools these days come with a ReadMe file explaining how to install scripts into the software. However, if this is your first time installing external plugins or basic scripts into Maya, you may be unfamiliar with the file directory Maya has!

Whenever you download a script, move the python file into the following depending on your operating system:

If on mac:
place the script file or folder in your
/Users/USERNAME_HERE/Library/Preferences/Autodesk/maya/MAYA_VERSION/scripts/

If on PC:
place the spartytools folder in your
C:\Users\USERNAME_HERE\Documents\maya\MAYA_VERSION\scripts\

Then follow the script specific instructions on how to run it. All of my scripts have a specified way to import the script into Maya. If you’re having troubling finding one, please contact me and I’d be happy to help out!
