Rig Builder

The Rig Builder tool allows you to quickly insert basic pre-built character rigs into your experience for use in animation, clothing testing, and other applications. You can also insert a rig of your account's avatar character, including character customizations and accessories. The rig builder generates character Models with the appropriate joints and humanoid structure to support animation, accessories, and character customizations.

Rig Types

There are two types of default rigs you can insert into your experience with the rig builder. An R6 rig is a legacy rig made up of 6 mesh objects, while an R15 rig is a model with 15 mesh objects, significantly expanding the R6's limited motion range. When creating rigs for use in your experience, use a rig type that is consistent with the rig types you intend to support in your experience.

Inserting a Pre-Built Rig

You can insert all pre-built rig types directly from the Rig Builder into your viewport.

  1. In the menu bar, navigate to the Avatar tab and click on Rig Builder.

  2. Select from the available options. The rig displays both in the 3D viewport and in the Explorer window under the name Rig.
