MakeHuman downloads (old version)

Since 1.2.0 has been released, we recommend that this is used if at all possible. However, it is still possible to download the old stable release (1.1.1).

The standard MakeHuman release with no extras bundled can be downloaded for Windows and OSX.

For Debian/Ubuntu derivates (such as any modern version of Ubuntu, Mint and so on), see the makehuman-official PPA for 1.1.x. For plain Debian see this instruction for how to enable PPA. 

If you want to download the source code for MakeHuman and/or run from a source snapshot, see the MakeHuman repository on Github


Often-used extensions

You will most likely also want some of the commonly used plugins, such as MHX2 and the asset downloader. These can be found on the plugins page. These are bundled in the 1.2.x releases and in the nightly builds


Extra assets such as clothes, hair and skins

More assets for MakeHuman can be found in the online repository. Using MakeHuman 1.2.x you can download these assets from within the application.
