To 3D print you need a printable digital model. The issue regarding the wherewithall to access 3D print technology is standard 3D design programmes as these are developed primarily for industrial designers requiring complex functionality to design for mass manufacturing processes. Applied artists, like myself, can’t afford the steep learning curves required to master highly complex prescriptive programmes. Not having the wherewithal to create sound 3D digital models to 3D print means that we can’t easily access this amazing technology. Looking for a way into 3D print technologies Colleagues and I researched, designed and created a remarkable 3D modelling tool for applied artists to work
Anarkik3D and Calm Technology As a new CEO of Anarkik3D in 2007, I perceived our approach to the development of 3D software as something like this: “Visualise an elegant swan gliding along calmly and effortlessly (a metaphore for our user interface) and under water superbly evolved webbed feet (the programme we build) paddle away relentlessly against the current (general computer applications) to get where it wants to be (a new enjoyable user experience)”. This core principle is the heart of Anarkik3D’s remarkable 3D modelling programme built specifically for designer makers for their way of thinking and doing.

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
Donna Brennan Contemporary is pleased to announce an exciting International Masterclass in London “Intuitive Haptic 3D Digital Modelling” ANARKIK3D DESIGN MASTERCLASS IN LONDON 13 Oct – 14 Oct 2018 with Ann Marie Shillito This intensive Anarkik3D Design Masterclass is geared to the requirements of jewellers, designer makers, applied artists and creative people who want to expand their business by taking advantage of 3D digital designing and 3D printing opportunities but find standard Computer Aided Design (CAD) programmes very intimidating. Led by designer/maker/jeweller Ann Marie Shillito: author of the book ‘Digital Crafts – Industrial Technologies for Applied Artists & Designer Makers’. Ann Marie is CEO of Anarkik3D, which develops 3D modelling
At a 2 day Workshop/Masterclass on haptic 3D modelling at Wiener Schmucktage this November you have the chance to win the haptic 3D modelling package, Anarkik 3D Design, that will be use in this class. Also, mything will select the best 10 models to 3D print. Anarkik 3D Design is a product for artists/designers who struggle with conventional CAD.
Feel that you are missing out on the potential that 3D digital designing and 3D printing can offer you? Are standard Computer Aided Design packages too prescriptive for your style of working? Want to try a serious fun way to expand your craft practice? For the Crafts Council’s Make:Shift:Do national event on 27th and 28th October, Anarkik3D have 2 workshops in Edinburgh using haptic 3D modelling. It just has to be tried to grasp its potential for helping you expanding your craft practice with 3D printing. technologies
This exciting exhibition of 3D printed jewellery by 10 international jewellers opens in Vienna on 5th October, 19:00-21:00, at GalerieV&V. The main criteria for selection is the jewellery maker’s love of ‘tools’, combining the possibilities of digital production with traditional making techniques. Each has there own different approach, some very personal, and others very pragmatic, yet both exploring the technology for the effects they can achieve.
This book showcases ground-breaking methods and techniques that have been adapted from industry and are now being applied by designer-makers. To the uninitiated, these technologies may seem complex, but this book explains simply and clearly how they have developed, how they work, and their application. Packed full with case studies of artists using these processes, this book demonstrates that outstanding work is possible with the right equipment and know-how, and argues that designer makers have the mindset, skills and knowledge to creatively engage with these industrial technologies.

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
