Meet Cogswell - the Flying Dragon!

Meet Cogswell!
This new Cogswell dragon rig looks awesome. We haven't had a chance to road-test it fully yet but it could be just the thing for animating flying fantasy creatures, or for quadruped locomotion. It has a full facial rig for expressions and acting, and you can download it free from this site here.

Who Created Cogswell?
The Cogswell dragon was created by Cogswell Polytechnical College.

Is there technical support?
Yes. There is an email address to contact. To report bugs or for questions and comments, email:

Which version of Maya will support it?
The rig requires Autodesk Maya 2014 and above. A free version of the rig is available with an .edu email address.

How do you download the rig?
You have to send Cogswell an email, and they will send a link to the rig. Be sure to let them know you are a student, and your interest is purely for non-commercial use, for the study of animation.

First, follow this link to the Cogswell page. Note that it might take them a few days to get back to you.
