Download most recent XROMM Maya Tools (MEL scripts and shelf) from Recent Changes and Downloads

The MEL scripts automate some of the XROMM tasks in Maya. Once the scripts have been copied to the correct directory on your computer, they can be called from the MEL command box at the bottom of the Maya interface.

The Maya XROMM shelf provides one-click button access to commonly used scripts. All scripts can be called from the MEL command box; the shelf is just for convenience.

Note: Type rehash in MEL command line after changing scripts
