PRINT_PACK Version 2.7 - Printing in Bifrost just got easier

*** UPDATE *** Version 2.9 is available here:


This is version 2.7 of my PRINT_PACK.


The goal of this version is to make printing in Bifrost much easier.

Instead of different print node for various task (which are still there) it offers you a simplified "print" node for scalar values and for arrays.


Here'a a tutorial video:


New features:



A new node with simplified settings for scalar values and arrays



For use within loops.

Print up to 16 description-value pairs to a sting.





The value inputs can now be scalar, strings and arrays.
Arrays will be printed in a single line, which helps display small arrays together with scalars.


WORD WRAP for longer texts works in Rich Text as well as in Fast Text


Special characters will now be ignored
Min/max sizes for string in print_array
Print_object_properties now also displays properties that have "indices" instead of "data"
A single character was not printed with rich text
any_array_to_string: Corrected min/max info, now from the whole array

How to install?

Message 4 of 7

Just drop it into this folder. C:\Users\UserName\Autodesk\Bifrost\Compounds

If the folder does not exist create it.


Or the more elegant solution create your own folder and add an environment variable like this.

Ok, thank you - I was trying to put it in the C:\Program Files\Autodesk\Bifrost\Maya2023\\bifrost\Compounds folder, not under users.

So just place the "print_pack_V2.7" folder in C:\Users\UserName\Autodesk\Bifrost\Compounds?

Yes or set an "environment variable" like i did here for BulletFrost.

This way you can better manage your compounds if you need different version or use different Maya versions.
