Welcome to Autodesk® Character Generator

3D Character Creation

Create, customize, and download your rigged 3D characters from a catalog of over 100 body types, outfits, hairstyles, and physical attributes in a few simple steps.


Drastically reduce the time needed to create customized, rigged and ready-to-animate 3D characters with Autodesk® Character Generator, a new, easy-to-use, web-based service. With Character Generator, you have control over a character’s body, face, clothes and hair, and can use colors, textures and artistic styles – like ‘Gorn’ or ‘Bulk’– to further customize your character’s look. Once your character design is complete, you can generate your character, now ready to animate, in either the Autodesk® FBX® or Autodesk® Maya® file format for use in popular animation packages like Autodesk Maya, Autodesk® Maya LT™, Autodesk® 3ds Max® software as well as in game engines like Unity. Generated characters can be used in hobbyist, student, and commercial projects such as games, architectural visualizations as well as film and TV projects.
