Thinking of buying?

Thinking of buying Anarkik3D Design as it could work for you? Let’s make sure:

  • You prefer to work and explore much more freely than most CAD system allow you to
  • Working more naturally with 3D movement and 3D touch (haptics) in a digital environment would really be good
  • As Anarkik3D Design is very intuitive to use there is no steep learning curve. In fact it just requires basic knowledge of using a computer
  • Anarkik3D Design is developed to be easy to master and use to balance your time between designing and making
  • You can learn for free from our online video tutorials and manual. If you prefer you can also sign up to a 2 or 3 day training course which costs up to £550
  • Buying Anarkik3D Design system costs approximately £650 (includes 3D modelling software and the essential Falcon haptic device) and is definitely justifiable
  • Anarkik3D Design requires a mid range computer (from 2006 or preferably better) with a decent graphic card to run properly

Thinking of buying Anarkik3D Design to access 3D printing? Here’s how:

  • By using solid modelling your designs can be saved in .stl and .wrl formats for immediate upload to print
  • You can buy your own 3D printer. These vary considerably in price, from build-your-own kits up to printers that cost thousands of pounds. You will also need to budget for the printing materials and any maintenance needed.
  • There may be a local group with a 3D printer that you can join, such as a Hacklab. You will need to contribute to their costs, but this could be a low-cost option.
  • Alternatively, you can send your models to a professional 3D printing service. Costs vary greatly depending on materials, the processes used and the amount of help they provide. As you can upload your model for a free no-obligation quote, you will always know what to expect however.
