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 unexpected
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.
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 their
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!
AnarkikCreations designed and produced ‘thank you’ gifts presented to the speakers, host and organiser. Ann-Maree Morrison, Managing Director and Founder – www.labels4kids.com – a multi award winning provider of personalised name labels across the globe, was a speaker at the Celebrating Women in Business event which was part of the activities happening during University of Stirling’s International Women’s Month in March 2015. She was joined by Carol Smillie, TV personality and Diary Doll co-founder, Hinda Miller, co-inventor of the world’s first sports bra, and Rachel Gunn of The Butterscotch Bakery. Celebrating Women in Business: https://www.stir.ac.uk/news/2015/02/international-women’s-day/ Six pendants were designed using the remarkable Anarkik3D Design haptic 3D modelling software and
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 workshop and presentation.
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! 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 for designer makers with workshops and courses.
Farah Bandookwala’s Award winning, interactive, Anarkik 3D Designed, 3D printed work. 3D printing is hot. You need 3D digital data of the model before it can be printed. Here is a great video in which Farah Bandookwala shows how haptic Anarkik 3D Design with its virtual touch has revolutionised the way she works with computers and 3D printing.
