Luxion Partners with TurboSquid for Model Verification

by | Mar 19, 2013

Irvine, California, March 19th, 2013 – Luxion, a leading developer of advanced rendering, animation and lighting technology and maker of KeyShot®, the first real-time ray tracing and global illumination program, in partnership with TurboSquid, the leader in stock 3D models for the 3D industry, is pleased to announce a unique partnership that gives 3D professionals confidence in the 3D models they use with KeyShot.

TurboSquid is the top provider of 3D model assets from 3d artist to engineer, with a keen focus on maintaining the quality in the large quantities of models available on the site. With the ability to import over 20 3D file formats, KeyShot imports the largest number of file types of any 3D rendering software. This partnership allows TurboSquid to use those import capabilities to verify and check the integrity of the 3D models submitted by TurboSquid members.

“As production pipelines grow and evolve, the TurboSquid Member Services team is being asked to help verify models against more software products so that customers have confidence in what they purchase.” says Beau Perschall, VP of Business Development, “We’re happy to announce that our Member Services team can now check models directly inside of KeyShot for those customers who depend upon this technology in their own work and help them make informed decisions when buying.”

The use of KeyShot to verify the models happens behind the scenes, while buyers searching for models may apply filters to search criteria and view models that have been through TurboSquid’s strict ‘CheckMate’ certification.
