Anarkik3D: 3DPrintShow2014 finalists
News.  Anarkik3D was successful in the Innovate UK’s Competition: Learning Technologies: Design for impact with their application: Touchable Universe: exploring the potential of haptic technology to improve learning outcomes. We are looking for teachers, schools, pupils and app developers in the Edinburgh area with whom to collaborate.
Dates for classes, workshops, courses and masterclasses for both fun and serious learning: see below..Places available.

Anarkik 3D Design –  evolution in digital 3D modelling for designer makers, applied artists who understand the importance of real-world touch. Coupled with haptic technology our software allows real sense of 3D touch to easily create and manipulate your virtual designs, ready for 3D printing. For non CAD users this is a real revelation!
Anarkik3D Ltd: award winning software development company, proud to be based in Edinburgh, Scotland.

1. The Art and Science of Touch
2. A Designer Maker’s Point of View
3. Anarkik 3D Design: An Overview

Upcoming Masterclasses & courses (new dates now added)

Masterclasses are for serious designer makers, applied artists and creatives who have no CAD experience and want to learn 3D modelling for 3D printing. We use haptic 3D modelling software (Anarkik 3D Design) as it is easy and quick to learn and use and to thereby understand the constraints of 3D modelling for successful printing.

Masterclasses and courses are taught by Ann Marie Shillito, the highly experienced CEO of Anarkik3D, designer maker /jeweller and author of the book ‘Digital Crafts’.

All classes include information on how to access 3D printing to enable you to take advantage of 3D digital designing and 3D printing. We can help show how to price, market and sell created works. Course Overview.

With small groups we are able to cater for your requirements in a creative environment where in-depth discussions are part of the course. Masterclasses, courses and classes are held either at Anarkik3D Ltd in Newington, Edinburgh or a central Edinburgh location.

Please contact us if you are interested in masterclasses and workshops for groups up to 10 persons held at your place or have a proposal. We demo 3D printing on an Ultimaker2.
