Robot rigs and Post-Processors are flexible and extensible, enabling the control of most 6-DOF industrial robots and brands using axes, external axes, poses, configurations, and I/Os.
Take advantage of Autodesk Maya's world-class animation, modeling, simulation, and rendering tools, as well as its enormous community that supports thousands of other plugins, tutorials, documentation, and other learning resources.
Mimic offers robust and fast kinematic control of 6-DOF Industrial Robots, including tools for IK/FK switching, cloning, and direct manipulating.
No Coding Required
Mimic lets you focus on making things, rather than programming robots. Attach your robots to any kind of animation controller and generate your tool paths automatically, without writing any code.
Mimic is developed and contributed to by a community of animators, designers, engineers, architects, and programmers. It's written in Python, works on Mac and PC, and you're free to use, change, and contribute back!
Our Slack community allows you to ask questions, discuss your work, and share material such as animations, CAD models, videos and renderings, and code.
Maya's animation tools enable precise, time-based controls for scrubbing, error-checking, velocity and acceleration controls, motion blending, key-framing, and more.
