Version 2.78 here. I have created a human model in MakeHuman and would like to export it into Blender, and then subsequently save the model (after doing some further editing) into a .blend file.

According to this YouTube video, I have to download "BlenderTools" from MakeHuman and then copy three directories (makeclothes, maketarget and makewalk) containing scripts into my $BLENDER_HOME/2.78/scripts directory.

My question is: I'm on a Mac, so I just have a Blender.app that I open from the Spotlight Search. I have no idea where Blender is actually installed on my machine. I tried which blender but got nothing.

Any ideas where I can find $BLENDER_HOME on my machine?



Right click on "Blender.app" and select "Show Package Contents". From there, navigate to the "Contents/Resources" folder and that is $BLENDER_HOME.

[EDIT] Actually, what jtheninja said in the comments is probably the more correct way to address the problem. Install in the "~/Library/Application Support/Blender" folder.

    $\begingroup$ You can also install things for your user at ~/Library/Application Support/Blender (folders here are by version number) $\endgroup$ – JtheNinja Feb 9 '17 at 17:18

    $\begingroup$ Don't modify the application folder if you can help it! It shouldn't hurt anything, but it's bad form—and people might assume it's deletable, as you can (normally) always download it again. (: $\endgroup$ – SilverWolf - Reinstate Monica Oct 13 '17 at 23:24
