Anarkik 3D Design version3: 3D modelling software with virtual 3D touch for designer makers, applied artists (this is what they say!), using haptic technology, (what is haptics?) for you to easily create and manipulate your virtual designs, ready for 3D printing.

For non CAD users this is a real revelation! (watch the videos below). Scroll down to see our 3D artists’ work, classes, courses, news and events.

Masterclasses, workshops & courses

Crafts Council’s Make:Shift:Do nation-wide events in October:

Anarkik3D in collaboration with colleagues at Napier University’s Fabrication Studio (School of Arts & Creative Industries) is giving two workshops on 28th and 29th October as part of Make:Shift:Do. This is a unique opportunity to try your hand at the following processes:
~ digital 3D modelling (using award-winning haptic Anarkik3D Design)
~ see your design being 3D-printed in temperature-responsive material (2 Ultimaker2 3D printers)
~ work with optical fibre and ways of drawing with light
~ explore interesting ways to make your novel creations interactive and come alive with light using Arduino microelectronic components.

The workshops on both days are suitable for designer-makers, applied artists and all enthusiasts with an interest in crafting with new technologies and responsive materials! There will be an exhibition of work at the end of the day, and lunchtime tours of the design studios at Napier.
When: 28th & 29th Oct, 10.00 – 17.00, lunch break 13.00 – 14.30
Where: The Glassroom, Napier University’s Merchiston Campus, 10 Colinton Road, Edinburgh EH10 5DT
Workshops are £10 (to cover materials) and places limited to 15 people each day. Please book either via the Napier On-Line Store or http://www.craftscouncil.org.uk/…/makeshiftdo-at-the-glassr….

Ann Marie Shillito will also be giving a short presentation at  Make Shift Conference, 11th Nov in Manchester.

 

In a Nutshell with Ann Marie Shillito of Anarkik3D: read here

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 and booking.

Information plus images of workshops & demos in Holland & Cologne in Nov 2015 see here. These were run by Birgit Laken and Ann Marie Shillito, both highly experienced designer maker/jewellers who enjoy their work.  Ann Marie is CEO of Anarkik3D, and author of the book ‘Digital Crafts’.

Group bookings: Up to 10 people, friends and colleagues can experience 3D modelling and 3D printing for serious fun while learning lots (Taster classes included). We cater for your requirements in a creative environment where in-depth discussions are part of the course. Masterclasses, courses and classes can be held at Anarkik3D Ltd in Newington, Edinburgh or at a venue of your choice.

Please contact us to organise a date for your group. If you are interested in masterclasses and workshops held at your hub, workshop, craftcentre or have a proposal please contact us. We demo 3D printing on an Ultimaker2.

Prototyping an idea - the paper prototypes from Mcor's ARKe 3D printer.

This is how prototyping happened. Update on the post below: October 2016: three units were 3D printed in paper in colour on Mcor’s new 3D printer as prototypes to check whether the holes through the length of the units could be cleared easily and how best to do that. The design of the units was moving towards what I wanted. Mcor’s ARKe technology offers high deffinition colour and our Anarkik3D Design package has some exciting ways to crisply colour surfaces by using coloured objects with complex curves and boolean subtraction. Serendipity is a delightful element in Anarkik3D Design which can be explored
