By 2018, TurboSquid has over 679,000 3-D objects in its collection, making it the biggest 3-D model collection available for purchase worldwide. Turbo Squid also offers over 130,000 other items, such as surface cards. The TurboSquid was formed by Matt Wisdom and Andy Wisdom, who were associates of Chimera Digital Imaging, a 1994-2000 TV advertising 3-D production group.
Simultaneously, Digimation, a New Orleans based business created by David Avgikos, was working on a similar 3dBay work. The two groups formally combined to become TurboSquid in April 2000. Supported by Angel's financing, the firm proclaimed the new market place at the SIGGRAPH meeting in August 2000. Thereafter, MotorDesk sold 3Ds max 4 with a TurboSquid add-on and TurboSquid made its first VC in April 2001.
Differences of opinion over many facets of the business resulted in the retirement of Tom Avgikos and David Avgikos, initially Chief Executive Officer, and a full split from Digimation in 2002. For the next few years, Andy Wisdom was active as Chief Executive Officer. Matt Wisdom was appointed Chief Executive Officer of the firm in 2006. Wisdom joined TurboSquid as Chairman of the Executive Committee and began working in the financial services sector.
