Share your shelves!!


For all you Mac users.
I found that the PC version, of a friend of mine, had
more presets as shelves than the Mac Maya.
A shelf with fur presets, a hair preset shelf, cloth and fluids shelfs as well.
It was just to copy them over to the Mac version and they works fine!



No shelfs, just hotkeys and marking menus.


Well, that’s not how it’s working over here, the normals just reverse, as the command says. You need the “Conform” option in the Normals menu. But Conform works best (only?) if Maya knows what is the in or outside of your object. This means: it works on closed shapes (but you can often temporarily close your shape with the “fill hole” tool).


hi guys,

here is my shelf. it’s all pretty much basic but i added MR render globals and a little script i wrote which keeps the surface shader’s out color node if the shader is switched to phong :wink:


I’d be nice if broken links were to be repaired/updated, and all these files were to work with M8 too :wink:



thanks for sharing …


Here are 5 I use.

colorpicker - For finding rgb values for mel scripting -bgc #'s.
pmframecounter - adding frame # in view and playblast
bluemelstudio - mel scripting plugin
timewarp - modify timing of selected objs with 1 timewarp curve
cometrename - rename/# multiple objects, etc


thanks sharing!


Heres some of mine:






My setup is simple since I deal mainly in just modeling and texturing.

  1. Poly-modeling (simple poly functions, bevel, split poly,etc.

  2. Texturing (UV layout, projections, face selection)


here’s my set of icons for custom scripts that i use ( which are not included ) and for some standard maya operations which don’t have it’s own icons.

there is also a tempate button so you can make your own if you need some other.
just open template in pshop and put some text or picture…

all icons are with background that match maya’s background so they fit nicely on shelves…



Great chovasie1!!! :applause:

Thanks! Gracias!


here’s my shelf :

works great on the xp green theme, if you use a different theme it’s easy to change the background of the icons in ps, also included a psd with the template


My shelf for allowing realtime camera recording and control with a 3D Connexion Device.

Also includes mouse mocap tools etc.



Man I love this thread. I find something new every time. Has anyone done icons for As_skinny and group button?


Does any one have one for a group command?


nottoshabi, try that iconTemplate PSD that rareseu posted. I’ve been using it and it’s really handy!

Which one? I can not find it. I did a search for his name and I found one that he posted a while back but there was no group icon in there.
