As we mentioned a few weeks ago, we’ve been hard at work on the redesign of our search interface.  We’re happy to announce today that the updated search has been officially released to all TurboSquid users!

For those of you that didn’t get a chance to check out the Beta, you’ll find that the new search interface makes it easier than ever to browse our massive catalog of high quality stock 3D content. Sporting a simplified design, the new search gives customers access to custom filtering features.The filter feature allows users to refine results across search terms, and then it immediately updates results based on price, file format, and user rating. For example, a search on the keyword “human” yields 9,391 results. You can immediately see that 7,261 are compatible with 3ds Max, and 7,393 of the total results are priced below $100. Seeing various data helps our users fine-tune their searches to find what they need right away.

Other options include customizing the thumbnail size to suit the user’s visual preference, and the ability to make custom lists of compatible file formats for different kinds of projects.

Now you can search on “human” gets 9,391 results, and can see immediately that 7,261 are compatible with 3ds Max and 7,393 are priced below $100.
Other options include customizing the thumbnail size to suit the user’s visual preference, and the ability to make custom lists of compatible file formats for different kinds of projects.

The results from both the Beta testing period and the early days of the release have been promising -  there has already been a healthy increase in the percentage of customers who are finding products and making a purchase.

Next-Generation Search Interface

Wednesday, July 22nd, 2009 by

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!
