TurboSquid to Become Newest Reseller of Hypercosm’s Web-Enabling Tools

(New Orleans, LA and Madison, WI – January 19, 2009) – TurboSquid, the world’s largest online marketplace for 3D assets, announced that it has become an official reseller of the Hypercosm LLC suite of web-enabling tools. Hypercosm LLC is a leader in 3D interactive simulation software for web-based training, education, communication, and design visualization.

"We were very excited to add the Hypercosm LLC lineup of products to TurboSquid”, said Beau Perschall, Vice President of Business Development at TurboSquid. "The ability to display models and animations online in an interactive fashion is something that we think will appeal to a large number of our 1.5 million member community."

Hypercosm LLC offers a unique set of tools which allow users of a variety of 3D modeling applications, such as 3ds Max and Google SketchUp, to display their models and animations safely in a web browser. TurboSquid will feature the Hypercosm Teleporter products, each available as either a Free or a Pro version, and the Hypercosm 3D Player.

  • Hypercosm Teleporter is a tool that makes web-based presentation practical for 3D models and animations. A 3ds Max or SketchUp user can now get more value out of their 3D models by creating an on-line portfolio or sharing with customers, colleagues, friends and family through webpages or email just like other electronic documents
  • Hypercosm Player is a free viewer that integrates with standard web browsers for displaying Hypercosm applets

"We’re really excited to be working with TurboSquid to bring effective, practical interactive 3D simulation to the web,” said Abe Megahed, Chief Technical Officer of Hypercosm LLC. “We hope that our partnership will enable 3ds Max and SketchUp users to get the most out of their 3D models."
