About Us - Anarkik3D Ltd
The company was founded in 2007 by contemporary designer maker Ann Marie Shillito and Software Engineer/ Manager Xiaoqing Cao as a spin out from collaborative research at Edinburgh College of Art and The University of Edinburgh to commercialise research findings about the value of touch (haptics) and movement with degrees of freedom for designing in a 3 dimensional virtual environment.
Our goal is creating the best 3D place for all non-CAD using creative people (designers, applied artists, artists, sculptors) at all levels of expertise to confidently engage with 3D designing and modeling and access technologies such as 3D printing. At our core is our remarkable touch enabled 3D sketch/modelling software package, Cloud9, developed by designers makers for designer makers to be intuitive to use, fun, easy and quick to learn, and highly suitable for learning the how, why and wherefore to 3D print perfectly in customized courses.
