Webinar: Converting 3D Models

Friday, May 25th, 2012 by

3D model MicrophoneOffering exchange file formats (OBJ, FBX, etc.) with your models is one way to boost your sales, but how do you export decent files that will satisfy customers? Come to our free webinar and find out how!

Although TurboSquid has offered free file format conversions for several years, many customers want to download an exchange format immediately. Offering an exchange format as part of your product can boost your sales, but only if the file works as expected. While customers don’t expect all the bells and whistles of your native format, they do expect the model to be constructed in the same way shown in thumbnails, and to include UVs and textures.

In this free webinar, TurboSquid Member Services Supervisor and conversion expert Chris Johns brings his knowledge to you. CJ (as he is known around here) will show you how to identify potential trouble areas in your model and avoid problems with conversions.

When: Wednesday, June 6, 10-11am CDT

Artist Spotlight: Jamie Hamel Smith

Thursday, April 19th, 2012 by

For April, the TurboSquid home page is featuring not one, but two CheckMate Pro models, a combination of complementary assets including a sexy and super fast looking Yamaha R6 motorcycle 3D model by Jamie Hamel Smith, with an equally stylish rider by 3D artist Vespa.

We got to chat with the man behind the motorcycle on how he got his start in the modeling field, where he finds his inspiration and how he got so good at making motorcycles.


Artist Spotlight: Vespa

You may have noticed that we have not one, but two CheckMate Pro models sharing the spot atop our home page this month. Vespa’s sleek cyclist looked lost without an equally impressive bike. So we started “shopping” the TurboSquid model catalog for just the right ride; the decision – a top of line Yamaha R6 superbike, created by 3D modeler Jamie Hamel Smith.

We chatted with Vespa (whose real name is Zdenek Vespalec)¬†about the tools, textures and overall inspiration that drove him to create this stunning streetbiker. (more…)

1000th CheckMate Pro 3D Model

Wednesday, April 11th, 2012 by

The count of CheckMate Pro models has just hit the 1000 mark! Congratulations to CheckMate artist Arturbob, whose beautiful Casio watch model became the 1000th 3D model to pass CheckMate Pro yesterday.

As the total number of CheckMate models approaches 5000, we couldn’t be happier with the success of our certification program. The only complaint we get from customers is that there aren’t enough CheckMate models yet! If you’re an artist interested in submitting for CheckMate, see our Knowledge Base for information on how you can join this group of elite 3D artists.
