What We’re Working On

You may or may not have noticed a few of the changes made recently to TurboSquid. We’ve been busy fixing issues as well as moving the needle on some big projects. Here’s a breakdown of what we’ve been working on.

Translations: In December, we announced the movement toward translating all of TurboSquid into 10 languages. What started with a few select site pages has expanded to include Full Preview and the Navigation Bar. This feature is still only available for artists and, as always, we welcome your feedback.

Seeing Double: For those artists that have experienced products being published multiple times, we’ve taken care of that. Within the publisher, we have disabled the “publish” button from displaying after an item has been submitted. This should eliminate the ability to create multiple products by clicking the publish button more than once for an already submitted asset.

Time Saving Tools: We are working on time-saving tools that will help to speed up your support requests. This isn’t out just yet, but we hope to make it available soon. As always, we are committed to working on ways to improve your TurboSquid experience.

Our Squids are always working on something exciting, so be sure to check our forums for updates on other projects and site issues.

Do You Like OpenCollada?
Pro Tip From Our 3D Experts

OpenCollada ProTips

space

TurboSquid Support Supervisor, Chris Johns, shares a tip to maximize your model’s compatibility with multiple applications and ultimately attract more buyers.

According to Chris, “The OpenCollada (*.dae) file type is one of the most reliable exchange formats available. When providing conversions for our customers, we typically will go with the OpenCollada (*.dae) file. Most applications can use OpenCollada (*.dae) files without any additional plugins.”

“A tip for a good export is to look for any errors when exporting and resolve them. This will help ensure that everything is transferred with the exchange format. Visit this site for the 3ds Max and Maya installers.”
