Take a tour of England’s Blenheim Palace with our new Featured Model! TurboSquid Artist 3DMarko is known for bringing an architect’s eye to his 3D models, so we weren’t surprised when he told us that he had, in fact, started his career as an architect. In this Featured Artist interview, we were able to discuss 3DMarko’s art, how he changed gears in his career through the power of 3D, and why he says he could find joy even in the “ugliest city in the world.”

Meet Matt Williams, QA Analyst

August 4th, 2014 by

Matt Williams, QA AnalystSince our Squid Tank keeps growing and changing, we think it’s time for another Meet the Squids interview!  In this issue, we’re talking with Matt Williams, a Quality Assurance (QA) Analyst who might belong to TurboSquid’s secret society, The League of Matts.  He also explains just what a QA Analyst does and shows us his favorite model in the TS catalog.

 

Let’s get the elephant out of the room.  With all the Matts in this office, you must have a nickname.  What is it, and how did you get it?

My parents gave me the nickname “Moozer” when I was a baby because I would mooch off of everyone’s plate at the dinner table. I was also an extremely fat baby, like a blob of ooze. So, they put moocher and ooze together and came up with Moozer.

 

You are currently the fifth Matt on the TurboSquid roster.  Is there a League of Matts we don’t know about?  Are you all in a secret pact to work at TS together?  Do you guys have a newsletter?

I’d like to plead the fifth on all accounts.

 

Good answer. (Ed. note: We are onto you guys.)

What Is Feature Graph?

July 23rd, 2014 by

Feature Graph is a system that we are using to categorize every asset on TurboSquid. This new system not only provides a better search result for assets, but Feature Graph creates better listings and product placement. No longer are you subject to a small set of categories that may or may not accurately describe your model — Feature Graph has over 13,000 categories. Read the rest of this entry »
