TurboSquid Named Autodesk Seek’s® Exclusive Marketplace Provider for User-Generated 3D Content
(New Orleans, LA – September 30, 2009) – TurboSquid, the world's largest online marketplace for stock 3D models, has been named the exclusive marketplace provider of user-generated 3D product models on the Autodesk Seek web service. TurboSquid provides marketplace services for Autodesk 3ds Max, Autodesk Revit, Autodesk Maya, Softimage, AutoCAD, Autodesk Mudbox and other Autodesk formats.
The agreement with Autodesk reinforces TurboSquid’s commitment to provide design professionals with a variety of options for finding and selecting user-generated product models. With the launch of Revit Market in December 2008, TurboSquid, in collaboration with Autodesk Seek, has become the largest marketplace for user-generated Revit content. Revit Market’s for-fee offering of design files complements the free manufacturer-approved content available through Autodesk Seek, the online source of manufacturer-specific product information accessible by design professionals working in Autodesk Revit and AutoCAD software.
“The user-generated content available through TurboSquid has consistently demonstrated value to the design community,” stated Jeff Wright, Senior Director, Autodesk Content Network. “Naming TurboSquid as our exclusive marketplace provider for user-generated 3D content was the next logical step in our relationship.”
“Architects, engineers and designers often need models ranging from people to furniture to trees in order to complete their projects,” said Matt Wisdom, CEO of TurboSquid. “By providing marketplaces that serve both the 3D animation and CAD sectors, we’re serving the needs of a broad spectrum of Autodesk software users.”
TurboSquid has long provided the largest marketplace for 3D models for Autodesk Media & Entertainment products such as 3ds Max, Maya and Softimage. Tentacles, TurboSquid’s modular search interface, is included with 3ds Max, and is available for Maya and other Autodesk software products. In addition, TurboSquid has administered the Autodesk Certified Animation Plug-in program since 2003. TurboSquid currently offers a total of twenty plug-in technologies for professional 3ds Max users, and continues to work closely with both Autodesk and third-party developers.
Founded in 2000, TurboSquid is the leading global marketplace for 3D Models, Textures, and Plug-ins. Customers in every line of work from Movies, Games, Television News, Architecture, Advertising, Defense and more depend on TurboSquid to save their projects time and money.
