Anarkik 3D Design version33D modelling software for designer makers, applied artists (this is what they say!)

3D modelling with real-world 3D touch using haptic technology. (what is haptics?)

Our software allows real sense of 3D touch to easily create and manipulate your virtual designs, ready for 3D printing. (scroll down to see our 3D artists’ work and schedule of workshops/demos for Oct/Nov 2015.)

For non CAD users this is a real revelation! (watch the videos below)

Workshops/demos in Holland are with 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’.

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.

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.

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.

Anarkik3D Design: the anticipated new version now available as well as a series of workshops from Glasgow, Dundalk in Ireland, Cologne and the Netherlands to get you up andrunning and being creative fast. The changes you will love are the enhancements and colour additions to functions such as rotate, Boolean, slice, mirror, torus creation, deform, etc. The interface is uncluttered: you can design, create, experiment, explore and play and go with the 'flow' with as little disruption as possible. Boolean is now so fast there is no excuse any more to go and make that cup of tea or coffee!
