Ribbon Creation Tool

Ribbons form the foundations to many rigs, but they can be time consuming to create. With this tool I want to take the pain out of building ribbons and give you the option to quickly create a biped limb ribbon, a quadruped limb ribbon and a more custom ribbon based off a models surface, which can then be used to simulate muscle movement.

Tool Features!

  • Build basic ribbons with any number of joints.
  • Automatically add controls to the ribbons.
  • Offers support for different joint orientations so they match your base skeleton.
  • Now includes quadruped support so you can create ribbons with two knee joints.
  • Convert a surface into a ribbon tool.
  • Also has matrix support for Maya 2020+.
  • Convert a follicle based ribbon into a matrix based one.

    • Watch this in depth tutorial video the learn more.

      Now includes the 2.8 BETA - Please report any bugs found when using this version.


      Version 2.8 BETA Updates
      • Various bug fixes
      • You only need to select the root joint now to use snap to joints
      • Ribbon length now uses the length of the joints, if one is selected, to get the perfect fit
      • Added the Extra Group Option which creates an extra group under the offset groups
      • Added The Simplify Ribbon option which creates a simpler and less dense ribbon
