The industry's first standard for 3D models

CheckMate ToolsBETA

TurboSquid now offers CheckMate Tools, the same tools our inspectors use in-house to help track down errors in CheckMate Pro submissions.

Use these tools to save time in preparing your 3D models for CheckMate Pro. Each application-specific tool produces a pass/fail report on different points of the CheckMate Pro specification, showing you which aspects of your 3D model need to be changed before it can pass certification.

CheckMate Tools are currently in beta. You can use these tools not only to prepare CheckMate Pro submissions, but also to perform quality testing of 3D models for your company's production pipelines. Try them out on your own models and give feedback on our CheckMate forum.
