18/02/2015 Update. ‘Touchable Universe’ Project: investigating how best to apply/combine/embed haptics with and into other learning technologies, tools and software to create more effective learning apps, particularly for ‘hard to teach’ subjects and groups, apps which are fun to learn and use, are ‘plug and play’, reliable and with built in support and methods to encourage self motivated learning and progression.

To demonstrate the powerful capability of such a platform the first wireframe app to be created using Anarkik3D’s prototype A-Frame platform is a virtual ‘Glockenspiele’ which you can physically strike and feel the impact, hear the different notes from the different bars and see the wavelengths of each notes. This Glockenspiele can be played in 3 environments: a a ‘natural’ one, under the ocean and up in Space, with these different places affecting the properties of sound. The bars can also be lengthened and shortened to hear how this affects the notes.Read More →

New to 3D printing and 3D modelling and wanting to know more? Deadline to apply for funding for hands on experience in a 1 or 2 or 3 day workshop is 23rd January 2015. The workshops provide professional expertise and information to understand if these technologies have potential for your practice and business, and whether it is a skill that you could master and enjoy using in your work.

Passionate about 3D printing – but can’t do CAD? Here is a link to a SlideShare presentation (http://www.slideshare.net/AnnMarieShillito/) rich in images and information about 3D printing, how to get models and how designer makers and artists are using 3D technologies. The blog is also about a visit to Creative Spark in Dundalk in Ireland to give a 1 day workshop/class on 3D modelling for 3D printing for designers and artists and a drop-in hands-on demo session, a visit to Mcor Technologies to see their impressive colour 3D printers, and a visit to the Fablab in Limerick.Read More →

This is the title of the Presentation I gave at the 3DPrintShow 2014 in London in September about other ways that designers are accessing 3D printing! http://www.slideshare.net/AnnMarieShillito/. I gave the presentation again (more slides added) on 31st October at a drop-in demo session at Creative Spark in Dundalk, Ireland. Creative Spark is a great resourse centre with space for small businesses to rent, with workshops, courses and classes for both learning, making and business development – the reason we were there. The previous day we had given a 1 day course on 3D modelling for 3D printing. To 3D print you have to have the right sort ofRead More →

  Anarkik 3D Design 3D modelling software, great for creating for 3D printing. Anarkik 3D Design: Software developments: Version 2.2 is due for release very soon: sole aim being Windows 7 / 8 support (plus one or two useful enhancements). This is at the current price of £300 (+VAT). V 2.2 will be free for our existing customers who want to switch and use it on Win7/Win8.

Anarkik 3D Design: Software developments & an offer to new customers: Version 2.2 is due for release very soon: sole aim being Windows 7 / 8 support (plus one or two useful enhancements). For a new user this is at the current price of £300 (+VAT). Version 3 will enhance the Anarkik 3D Design experience that we already give: faster cleaner object manipulation (especially for Boolean, replacing the current archetype) international interface support (the first being the UI in Mandarin) licensing: switched to Falcon & not to specific computer, making it easier to upgrade hardware and to move the haptic device(s) to use with other computers/laptops portable codebase:Read More →

Exciting project and commission for Elizabeth Armour to create 200 little ‘aurora’ models, each piece with an LED to make it glow. She used Anarkik 3D Design software and 3D printing to create the models, and each guest will be given one to wear at ‘The Northern Ceilidh’ in Dundee City square on 10th of August beginning at 8pm!  The effect will be amazing as the light trails will be captured as the guest dance around. Anarkik3D is especially proud to promote Elizabeth and this project as not only is our software used with great effect we also 3D printed the prototype to test for fit onRead More →
