I have been trying to use the paint geometry tool for Maya 2014 but it isnt showing up. I downloaded Bonus Tools 2012 and installed it. Where can I find this tool in Maya 2014?

  • \$\begingroup\$ Are you sure the 2012 version is even compatible? Why not use the 2014 version of the bonus tools? \$\endgroup\$ – Josh Oct 29 '14 at 18:36

In Maya 2014 you go to Modify -> Paint Scripts Tool [Options] -> Setup. Enter "geometryPaint" under 'Tool setup cmd:' and there you have it!

paint geometry tool for higher Maya versions, e.g. 2017: run the script inside the mel console(you can drag and drop the script line from the mel console to a shelf, too) to get the legacy paint geometry tool (from maya bonus tools 2012):

ScriptPaintTool; artUserPaintCtx -e -tsc "geometryPaint" currentCtx;
