As a young contemporary jewellery designer, Anarkik 3D’s Cloud 9 software has provided me with a creative platform on which I can develop designs easily and experiment in 3D printing; producing models that I can make into wearable statement pieces and also accessible jewellery.
The organic, freeform nature of Cloud 9 means that I can completely engross myself in playing around with shapes, patterns and coming up with intricate pieces. Equally; quick 3D sketches can become some of my favourite designs.The haptic device allowing your sense of touch in the design process was a completely new experience for me and also makes the software very enjoyable to use- it’s good fun! Being able to ‘touch’ your design also really adds a distinct sense of control; your object isn’t totally lost to the element of serendipity that Cloud 9 provides.
The day courses with Anarkik 3D have given me an enormous amount of support in terms of learning how to use and get the best out of the software. Including one-to-one tuition and a greater understanding of how 3D Printing works as a service. Through these tutorial groups I have met designers, makers and artists from different backgrounds which is great for discussion, swapping ideas and networking; on Anarkik 3D’s website and through dropbox I can see how others who have taken the course are using Cloud 9 to create unique designs and realize these in solid forms through 3D Printing.

Yes, I think the best thing is that people see it and can lay their own hands on it to try it out! Then they will experience how easy to learn Cloud9 is. When I am that far I will show it to everyone that wants to see it! It will become well known in the future, I am sure of that!

Oh what a wonderful time I had, trying out Cloud 9 / Falcon!
Of course it wouldn't have been as much fun were it not for your very patient and effective guidance. Thank you so very much. (And, once again it was really nice to work together with you all, my lovely friends from the Netherlands!)
You are very welcome to use any of the images I generated. They're all in the Masako folder within the Anarkik3D Course Materials file.

It is my pleasure to let you know, that I enjoyed the 3D course very much.
You have proven to be an excellent teacher; I have enjoyed your personal instruction and appreciated the time you have given to me. While the course was very interesting, it was also very complicated. As a matter of fact I thought it was rather tough.
Now and than I got a bit confused, because of the rather large load of new information. Also I felt that there was not enough time between the different topics, that were taught. I would have liked more time to practise before a new chapter was treated. As a foreign language speaker, I had sometimes difficulties understanding the technicalities of the process; the technical language was so new for me.
Finally, I would like to tell you that I think the 3D course has proven to be an excellent course, which has given me new ideas about designing jewelry.

A few years ago, I saw an incredible demo which Ann Marie Shillito gave to a few of us in Hursley. It was like being able to reach inside the screen and mould objects. The sense of touch added another dimension in a way which 3D displays just never have for me. I would definitely recommend trying to get a demo if at all possible.
