The people to whom I am talking believe in their expertise, integrity and autonomy as designer makers and applied artists, people who are open to learning new skills and open to the benefits of 3D digital technology: for enhancing their practice, helping make it more sustainable in the longer term – because they are concerned about the impact that climate breakdown is having globally. Hence this post on A 3D Digital Technology Journey: supporting a designer/maker’s more environmentally responsible practice. I am Ann Marie Shillito, a designer maker and jeweller, also co-founder and CEO of Anarkik3D Ltd. I have always been eco conscious. Covid lockdown
ANARKIK3D DESIGN MASTERCLASS Q&A: “Intuitive Haptic 3D Digital Modelling” This masterclass was held on 13 Oct – 14 Oct 2018, in London, and run by Ann Marie Shillito. Q. Regarding the Anarkik3D Design Masterclass, what is the difference between a workshop and a Masterclass? A. A workshop is a more general learning environment for explorations within a theme, be that context, material or process. A masterclass is a more intensive learning environment for professionals within a specific discipline and run by an expert in that discipline. This masterclass has more clearly defined outcomes and is structured to achieve these. Ann Marie Shillito, running the masterclass,
Anarkik3D’s object for VADundee’s #myVADundee is, of course, its haptic 3D modelling software and here’s the reasons why: V&A Dundee, as an international centre of design, presents the brilliance of Scottish creativity: Anarkik3D is a young Scottish company that develops world leading haptic enabled software which makes designing in 3D inclusive! What is really remarkable about their 3D modelling product, Anarkik3D Design, is the haptics because haptic means touch! So with Anarkik3D Design you experience the WOW sensation of actually touching and feeling virtual 3D objects and their properties of hardness and softness and use this in designing. The off-the-shelf robot-like haptic device is pretty
