After months in development, we’re finally ready to announce our new search interface! We started from nearly the ground up, and we think you’re going to love the results. You’ll notice both visual and functional updates – the new changes make it easier than ever to find the perfect 3D model or texture for your project.
The updates to the search interface were driven by a lot of research into how our users look for products on TurboSquid. Things like file format compatibility, price and product type are at the top of most people’s lists. We took all of those elements (and more) and put them right on the search results page as selectable filters. You can easily select as many of these filters as you’d like, and the new results will update instantly. In addition, we now show you the number of results you’ll get from selecting each filter – before you actually select the filter. Curious how many of our “desk” results are available in .3ds and are between $100 and $200? The answer is visible right on the page.
We are currently testing the new search interface – half of the traffic to TurboSquid is seeing the new version, and half is seeing the old. If you’d like to manually turn on the new interface and check it out, visit our Search Beta settings page.
After you’ve had a chance to see it in action, let us know what you think!
