Anarkik3D’s object for VADundee’s #myVADundee is, of course, its haptic 3D modelling software and here’s the reasons why: V&A Dundee, as an international centre of design, presents the brilliance of Scottish creativity: Anarkik3D is a young Scottish company that  develops world leading haptic enabled software which makes designing in 3D inclusive! What is really remarkable about their 3D modelling product, Anarkik3D Design, is the haptics because haptic means touch! So with Anarkik3D Design you experience the WOW sensation of actually touching and feeling virtual 3D objects and their properties of hardness and softness and use this in designing. The off-the-shelf robot-like haptic device is prettyRead More →

The copy editor sent me all her corrections, amendments and suggestions so the whole content had to be gone through with a fine tooth comb. Now there are 4 new images and their captions to collect together to fill gaps the editor would like filled!
