Greetings from the SIGGRAPH 2011 Exhibition

Today, Jonathan Lloyd and I traversed the show floor looking to find out about new and exciting developments in the 3D industry. The chance to reconnect with colleagues is an added bonus, not to mention the visual feast that awaits all attendees.

We visited several booths including Autodesk, Digital Domain, NVIDIA, and 3D World. Read More

Talking About Standards at Siggraph 2011

Michele Bousquet 3D Modeling

Jonathan Lloyd and I just finished giving a talk on 3D Modeling Standards as part of the official presentation program at Siggraph 2011 in Vancouver, Canada. Attendees got a whirlwind tour through TurboSquid’s two-year adventure in developing, testing, refining, and finally releasing 3D modeling standards as part of CheckMate Certification.
