The CheckMate Pro standard at TurboSquid is based on the CheckMate 3D Modeling Standard, the highest quality standard available for the 3D industry. 3D models that meet the CheckMate Pro standard at TurboSquid are marked with the CheckMate Pro badge.
Because 3D model presentation is such a vital part of showing quality, rules for publishing a model for sale at TurboSquid are an integral part of the CheckMate Pro standard. The Knowledge Base articles listed below describe these standards.

Participants in the CheckMate program who have received certification and would like to use CheckMate branding to promote their own models may do so on other sites, so long as such models are not sold on those other sites.
