Mimic is a free and open-source plugin for Autodesk Maya that enables animation 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. 

Mimic was developed by the Autodesk Robotics Lab. Our team works on a lot of experimental robotics projects, writing many of our own software tools from scratch. We found that we 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.
