Publisher Nearing End of Beta

Chris Phillips Site

Since we put the Beta of the new Publisher online in December, we’ve been continually upgrading and adding functionality based of your feedback. Today we released our fourth upgrade, and we believe the new Publisher is ready to become the default publishing system on the site in the next week or two.  For a while you’ll still be able to access the old Product Manager after the new Publisher comes out of Beta (in case we find any new issues).  If you haven’t tried out the new Publisher, now is the time to use it and let us know if you run into problems.  If you tried it out in December, read about what we’ve upgraded and have another look.…

New features and bug fixes

Chris Phillips Site

A new set of features and bug fixes went online at TurboSquid today.  We are continuing to focus on the Publisher and My Files section while they are still in beta.  With this release, we believe that we are very, very close to taking this section out of beta and making it the default Publisher and Download sections of the site.  You will continue to be able to use the old sections for a little while after the switch, but now is the time to check out these new pages if you’ve been holding off.…

Small bugfixes now online

Chris Phillips Site

A small set of bug fixes and some backend upgrades to the certification processes went live today.  We still have at least another two rounds of small hotfixes to the new Publisher and Download section before we switch these from beta into the default systems.  You will continue to be able to use the old Product Manager for a few months after this transition.…

Next-Generation Search Interface

Paul Teall Site

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.…
