Included Tools

CheckMate Artist Inspection Tools (v3.25)

The CheckMate Artist Inspection Tools allow you to pre-flight your model directly inside of 3ds Max so you can check for technical defects that would prevent your work from being accepted as part of our CheckMate catalog. Instead of having to manually review your work when you’ve completed your model, you can run these tools to check dozens of aspects of your effort, from review for overlapping faces and nGons, to stripped texture paths and object naming. With the click of a button, you’ll be able to identify any corrections needed to hit the technical aspect of the CheckMate process, whether you are looking to provide a model that is CheckMate Lite, CheckMate Pro or PixelSquid quality. 

Finally, it’s worth noting that these are the same tools that the TurboSquid inspection team uses when we review a CheckMate submission. By running these tools beforehand, your inspection will take less time and you can continue to build more great model content instead of trying to fix a broken product.  

PixelSquid Studio Tools (v3.25)

The PixelSquid Studio Tool is a scripted plug-in that will help you prepare your models for use within a PixelSquid spinner, and includes all of the proper render settings, lights and animated camera for V-Ray 2.x, 3.x, and 4.x users. It also comes with multiple calibrated HDRI image-based Studio lighting and stage rigs with different lighting conditions (interior, exterior, product shots, etc.) that not only help you ensure your models look great when submitted and rendered out for PixelSquid spinners, but also make lighting a one-click process.
