What happens next?
When you submit a model for certification, the product goes into a queue. Then a TurboSquid Staff Inspector checks your product against the specification and sends you the results. If your model fails CheckMate Certification, you may fix the model and resubmit it to CheckMate.
While you can submit as many products as you like for CheckMate, there is a limit to the number of products that can be in your Inspection Queue at any given time. To learn more, see the CheckMate Inspection Queues topic.
