  • 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!

  • 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.
