 In addition to the "​legacy"​ avatars, you have the option of selecting one of the many newer rigged mesh-style avatars. These consist of a custom 3D mesh character model that is worn as an attachment and overlaid on top of the skeleton of a legacy avatar.

-This type of avatar allows 3D content creators to design models in a third-party tool such as Maya or Blender, allowing them to take advantage of the latest graphics updates to Mobius Grid and create highly detailed human and non-humanoid avatar forms. However, due to their nature as an overlay on top of a hidden legacy avatar, mesh avatars may not wear the texture-based clothing made for legacy avatars. Mesh avatars may also have difficulty interacting with attachments,​ accessories or animations that were originally intended for legacy avatars; for help finding appropriate clothing, see Buying clothing that fits your avatar. ​+This type of avatar allows 3D content creators to design models in a third-party tool such as [[http://​www.autodesk.com/​products/​maya/​overview|Maya]] or [[https://​www.blender.org/​|Blender]], allowing them to take advantage of the latest graphics updates to Mobius Grid and create highly detailed human and non-humanoid avatar forms.
