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.

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 →
