Mimic - Open-Source Autodesk Maya Plugin to Control Industrial Robots
The Autodesk Robotics Lab excited to announce the release of Mimic, an open-source Autodesk Maya plugin for controlling Industrial Robots.
Mimic is a free and open-source plugin for Autodesk Maya that enables simulation, programming, and control of 6-axis, Industrial Robots. It provides a robust and intuitive, animation-based toolset, allowing creators to prototype, validate, and drive automated systems.
The team works on a lot of experimental robotics projects, writing many of their own software tools from scratch.They found out that they needed a flexible and extensible solution for working with robots from within familiar design software; and so Mimic was born.
We built it to work for us, but we’d like to share it with you to use, change, and expand.
