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 made
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.

Ann Marie Shillito, co-founder/CEO of Anarkik3D Ltd: invited speaker at the 3DPrintShow Summit in Madrid. Ann Marie gave a presentation about the research that went into the development of the Company’s own-Brand product, Anarkik 3D Design which is a haptic 3D modelling software that is very different from the standard CAD packages that are mostly used for 3D printing. She explained the different requirements that designer makers and applied artists have for creating digital 3D work and why Anarkik3D’s touchie feelie approach suits so many of them. The Presentation title was ‘Hola! Touchie Feelie software! It’s Anarkik 3D Design. Get physical with 3D modelling – it’s
V&A Dundee and the Travelling Gallery Bus: Exhibition ‘Design in Motion’ This wonderful V&A Dundee ‘Design in Motion’ exhibition was launched on 13th Feb 2015 and the bus toured to over 70 places in Scotland.
