Anarkik3D and Calm Technology I was a new CEO of Anarkik3D in 2007. I wrote about how I perceived our approach to the development of 3D software should be. Something like this: “Visualise an elegant swan gliding along calmly and effortlessly (this is the user interface) and under water superbly evolved webbed feet (the programme we build) paddle away relentlessly against the current (general computer applications) to get where it wanted to be (a new enjoyable user experience)”. This is the core principle of the remarkable 3D modelling programme that my company, Anarkik3D, has built specifically for designer makers for their way of thinking and
Feedback from designer makers and students confirmed that Anarkik3D Design 3D modelling programme is on the right trajectory as it is focused on providing a straightforward interface and selected functionality, both fundamental to enabling many to finally access 3D print technologies. So many visitors delighted in finding an alternative programme to CAD.
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 pretty
