Free Friday: Say Hello to Helios

by Thibault Houdon

Helios is a Maya utility that will speed up your workflow by allowing you to execute hundreds of commands just by typing them. For FREE!


Execute everything you want

Helios comes with hundreds of pre-built commands and it supports both Mel and Python. Not only can you create objects, you will also be able to open windows such as the UV Editor or the Outliner or enter any Maya tool (Multi Cut Tool, Create Polygonal Tool…).

Custom commands included

Helios comes with some commands which were built specifically to save you time. These commands are not available by default in Maya and are small python scripts that will help you work faster.

Some of the custom commands included are:

  • Fill Selection.
  • Move Pivot to Selected Vertices.
  • Create Joints from Nulls.
  • Snap Object to Center of the World.


Make Helios work the way you want

You can make Helios yours and custom it to your needs. All the commands are listed in an python dictionary that you can easily edit to change the name of the commands or add yours.
