Super Simple Rig

A Free 3ds Max Character Rig!

Super Simple Rig is a custom rig for 3ds Max I have been developing since 2008. A Super Simple Rig is quick to set up, is easy to use, and is fast to animate with. If you are tired of setting up and animating complex rigs, and just need something simple, Super Simple Rig could be what you are looking for.

Super Simple Rig was designed to help small teams produce character animation. The system has been updated for every character project I have supervised. Thanks to a generous grant from Grafill I have been able to document it and release it to the public.

Download and installation

Click below to download. Double check that the file was downloaded with a .mzp extension/file type. After the download is complete, drag the file from your download folder into the 3ds Max window. The installation should then start automatically.

How to start?

If you want to rig a character, you should read about how to create Your First Rig, followed by the the Rig Builder Window reference.

If you are an animator with an already rigged character, read the page on Animating with Super Simple Rig.

Follow the links at the bottom of this page for more documentation.

Support The Rig

If you find yourself using Super Simple Rig in production, please consider purchasing the Pro version to support further development.

If you pay 50 dollars, I will email you the pro version of the rig. The pro version of the rig includes simple rigging of animals and the Save Load window.

You are not allowed to sell or in any way use portions of the script in any commercial product. The source code is there for you to study, or in case you need to change parts for internal projects, but no part of the source code is to be sold.

While I will do my best to fix major issues, downloading the script does not entitle you to support. I have been using it on my productions without problems, but you should still use it with caution.
