Ursula Guttmann: Free form designing created in an ANARKIK3D DESIGN MASTERCLASS/ workshop using this haptic 3D modelling programme.

International Jewellery Symposium A 3 day International Jewellery Symposium at the Fashion Institute of Technology in May in New York, in partnership with Politecnico di Milano, will discuss issues surrounding jewelry design and manufacturing, digital v handmade and the shift in recent years with the wider use of computer aided design and 3D printing. ‘….every tool, hand-held or digital—leaves its mark. This symposium will provide an arena for debate on how digital technology and making by hand duel for influence in the aesthetics, the use, and the cultural contexts of jewelry as both a manufactured product and as an applied art form.’ Paper and presentation One of the strands to beRead More →

At a 2 day Workshop/Masterclass on haptic 3D modelling at Wiener Schmucktage this November you have the chance to win the haptic 3D modelling package, Anarkik 3D Design, that will be use in this class. Also, mything will select the best 10 models to 3D print. Anarkik 3D Design is a product for artists/designers who struggle with conventional CAD.Read More →

Feel that you are missing out on the potential that 3D digital designing and 3D printing can offer you? Are standard Computer Aided Design packages too prescriptive for your style of working? Want to try a serious fun way to expand your craft practice? For the Crafts Council’s Make:Shift:Do national event on 27th and 28th October, Anarkik3D have 2 workshops in Edinburgh using haptic 3D modelling. It just has to be tried to grasp its potential for helping you expanding your craft practice with 3D printing. technologiesRead More →

This is how prototyping happened. Update on the post below: October 2016: three units were 3D printed in paper in colour on Mcor’s new 3D printer, prototyping them to check whether the holes through the length of the units could be cleared easily and how best to do that. The design of the units was moving towards what I wanted. Mcor’s ARKe technology offers high deffinition colour and our Anarkik3D Design package has some exciting ways to crisply colour surfaces by using coloured objects with complex curves and boolean subtraction. Serendipity is a delightful element in Anarkik3D Design which can be explored and played with as unexpectedRead More →

SlideShare presentation for #shemakes, a GirlGeekAcademy event in Melbourne, Austratia, 10th Sept 2016. Here is more information on each slide: Slide 1. My story: a career move from designer jeweller to running a software development company. The move seems a big leap but is really a very straight path helped along the way through collaborating with super techies and computer scientists and demonstrates the value that STEAM collaborations bring to innovation. Slide 2. My jewellery business specialised in using refractory metals such as titanium and niobium. Refractory metals are not easy to cut by hand but laser cuts them like butter and the technology madeRead More →

We set up Anarkik Creations Ltd to create a place where we can bring together the jewellers using Anarkik3D’s haptic 3D modelling software, and 3D printing to produce amazingly delicious pieces, and the people who relish wearing such outstanding statement jewellery that makes them stand out from the crowd! A range of these pieces are currently available through our crowdfunding project. Go see if you dare: http://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/anarkikcreations. The project ends at 7 pm GMT on 18th April 2016.Read More →

ANARKIK3D: DESIGNER MAKER FEATURE   How technology is transforming the jewellery industry: we talk to three designer makers to find out how Anarkik3D’s innovative haptic 3D modelling software is influencing their creativity. There is a quiet revolution going on across Scotland and internationally as designer makers embrace the use of new technologies to create and produce innovative objects, including jewellery collections, for increasingly discerning consumers; and the technology behind this? Anarkik3D’s haptic 3D modelling software. Award winning Anarkik3D Design 3D Modelling Software is unique. It exploits virtual touch technologies to create an intuitive interface for designer makers to interact digitally in 3D and combine theirRead More →

Anarkik3D Design: the anticipated new version now available as well as a series of workshops from Glasgow, Dundalk in Ireland, Cologne and the Netherlands to get you up andrunning and being creative fast. The changes you will love are the enhancements and colour additions to functions such as rotate, Boolean, slice, mirror, torus creation, deform, etc. The interface is uncluttered: you can design, create, experiment, explore and play and go with the ‘flow’ with as little disruption as possible. Boolean is now so fast there is no excuse any more to go and make that cup of tea or coffee!
