Thinking of buying Anarkik3DDesign for PC or Apple Mac?
For yourself or for your lab, institution or company?
Making sure this programme is right for your needs
- You are here because you’re interested in knowing more about this alternate way of working digitally in 3D
- Anarkik3DDesign is not CAD (Computer Aided Design), it is 3D digital modelling
- Anarkik3DDesign is software (Cloud9) bundled with a haptic device (Falcon).
- It is affordable and justifiable as Anarkik3DDesign is easy to learn and use – no steep learning curve and loads of scope to master
- No previous experience of 3D designing or modelling: this is no barrier: only need basic knowledge of using a computer
- You can work and explore more freely than CAD systems allow: Anarkik3DDesign is a joy to use.
- You work more naturally with 3D virtual touch (haptics) and movement in 3D: no re-learning necessary after a major break away as interaction is intuitive and the interface straightforward.
Are you a creative individual?
- Anarkik3DDesign fits into your everyday practice: as a designer maker you can balance your time between designing and making, marketing, and enjoying your other interests
- You can learn on your own at your own pace: use online video tutorials, worksheets and function list /hot keys (these need a password to access).
- You can sign up to a training course/masterclass
- Anarkik3DDesign doesn’t need an expensive computer: it runs on mid range PC computers (with a decent graphic card) and on a MacBook Pro
- You can be creating within as little as an hour from set-up!
- Is Anarkik3DDesign more in keeping with how you work?
- If you need a precision based, industry standard design programme then go for CAD: Anarkik3DDesign is not for you!

Thinking of buying Anarkik3DDesign for your college department?
- Anarkik3DDesign complements CAD: the .stl format can be used to transfer 3D models between programmes
- Anarkik3DDesign is an excellent introduction to 3D digital modelling and then on to designing using CAD
- Contact us for details about the packages we can provide: Cloud9 software and training for staff.
- Discounts on Cloud9 software available on orders of 5 seats or more: we do not offer educational discounts as everyone pays the same.
Thinking of buying Anarkik3DDesign to access 3D printing?
- Anarkik3DDesign is designed for 3D print technologies.
- It has ‘water-tight’ solid primitives (sphere, cube, cylinder, cone, torus, 3D line) to deform and construct
- It uses industry standard .stl format for general 3D printing, and .wrl format for 3D printing in multicolours
- There are excellent professional 3D printing service companies: easy to open an account
- Upload your model for a free no-obligation quote, so no surprises: print costs vary depending on model size, quality, materials, processes used and help provided.
- Local labs (such as Eagle Labs) or groups with a 3D printer such as a Hacklab are a low-cost option: use for prototyping and testing before committing to more expensive 3D prints.
- Buy your own 3D printer or a build-your-own kit: you need to budget for the printing materials and maintenance.
