Schemes for freelancers/sole traders and for Corporates/Institutions

These schemes are only available in the UK for the time being for two reasons: our resources are limited (working on ‘first come…’ basis) and Brexit has made international transactions almost impossible for us.

Freelancers and sole traders in the designer maker sector

Over the pandemic Anarkik3D has taken on board all feedback received. So for freelancers and sole traders in the designer maker sector we honed our standard loan scheme into a specific package to enable you to distance learn Anarkik3DDesign and investigate the potential of 3D technologies such as 3D printing for enhancing your practice.

Anarkik3DDesign uses haptics (3D virtual touch) provided by a desktop haptic device. Anarkik3DDesign has WOW effect because 3D ‘haptic’ device enables you to physically touch and feel virtual objects as you create them! You can then get your design 3D printed as Anarkik3DDesign is optimised for 3D printing!

This is a very different way of working from the standard computer aided design (CAD) programmes available as haptics makes Anarkik3DDesign easy and fun to learn and use. Within the time period of the three month loan you can teach yourself and create forms to 3D print. No CAD experience is required to get going.

Our applied arts users love our programme and you can read their comments on our home page.

Basically you loan the package (two options) for 3 months for a lump sum, most of which is a returnable deposit which you get back when we get the hardware back in good condition.

Full information for this specific offer is here in this post.
