TurboSquid? TurboSquid? That can't be right. But, it is! TurboSquid is a free marketplace for digital assets. David Avigkos, one of the founders of Digimation, has cornered another market. It has been open for only 9 months, and already has 70,000 resources. Digital artists upload renderings, texture maps, animations, and any other 3d properties, and then the public searches and downloads them. This is of no cost to the artists, and the revenues are divided 50\50. The program will be fully operational in 2 weeks, and will be a beta for a month.
