NVIDIA Omniverse Code

NVIDIA Omniverse™ Code is an Omniverse foundation app that serves as an integrated development environment (IDE) for tool builders and 3D pipeline developers. You now have a faster, easier way to build your own Universal Scene Description (OpenUSD) -based 3D workflows, tools, extensions, applications, and services.

Get Started

Omniverse Code includes the Omniverse Kit SDK runtime, as well as powerful tools, templates, and documentation in a simple-to-navigate interface. Code makes it easy to use the powerful capabilities of the Omniverse Kit SDK when developing advanced real-time simulation and digital twin applications.

Benefits of Building in Code

Simple to Start and Use

Code’s default configuration helps first-time Omniverse developers quickly become familiar with the platform’s core technologies. It also accelerates development with a simple-to-navigate interface, interactive documentation, templates, and “Hello World” samples.

Minimal Code, Maximum Output

With NVIDIA Omniverse, there’s no need to start building from scratch. Use pre-built Omniverse foundation app templates and modifiable source code from over 500 extensions to develop your own project.

Easily Package and Publish

Package and publish your extensions, applications, and services with ease. Make your tools available to everyone that uses Omniverse through the community extension manager or by publishing to the Omniverse Exchange Publishing Portal.

Key Tools and Extensions

Extension Manager

Extension Manager

Browse, load, and examine the source code of hundreds of pre-built Omniverse extensions and foundation apps. Then, start creating your own using none, some, or all of the pre-existing extension and app code as templates.

Interactive Documentation

Interactive Documentation

Easily view and engage with interactive documentation directly in Code, including core documentation for Omni.UI, Graph UI, Viewport, USD, and more.

Omni.UI Framework

Omni.UI Framework

The Omni.UI framework is a powerful toolkit to create beautiful, rich, and flexible graphical user interfaces for extensions and applications built in Code.

Interactive 3D Viewport

Interactive 3D Viewport

The viewport extension is a fully customizable window for viewing 3D scenes within Omniverse Kit-based applications. Powered by USD Hydra, this extension can support integration with many common renderers.

Visual Studio Code Live Connection

Visual Studio Code Live Connection

Live-connect Visual Studio Code to an Omniverse Code session to see your changes reflected in real time. This enables instant, easy iteration, experimentation, and debugging while developing.

USD Tools and Windows

USD Tools and Windows

Use any of the existing tools—including layers, render settings, and properties—to manipulate USD in your own extensions and apps.

Content Browser

Content Browser

Easily find relevant data or assets to test your extensions using any of the browsers to search through one or many Nucleus servers.



Microservices templates and interactive documentation are available directly in the default configuration of Code for fast ramping on how to ideally architect platform services.

Omniverse Replicator

Synthetic Data Generation

Omniverse Replicator is a core extension of the Omniverse platform that’s accessed by downloading Omniverse Code. Replicator allows developers to generate physically accurate synthetic data and build custom synthetic data generation (SDG) tools for training computer vision AI models and networks.
