Anarkik 3D Design: Software developments & an offer to new customers: Version 2.2 is due for release very soon: sole aim being Windows 7 / 8 support (plus one or two useful enhancements). For a new user this is at the current price of £300 (+VAT). Version 3 will enhance the Anarkik 3D Design experience that we already give: faster cleaner object manipulation (especially for Boolean, replacing the current archetype) international interface support (the first being the UI in Mandarin) licensing: switched to Falcon & not to specific computer, making it easier to upgrade hardware and to move the haptic device(s) to use with other computers/laptops portable codebase:
Removing the CAD barrier to 3D printing! for jewellery students. Last Monday was exciting and fun as we showed that Anarkik 3D Design can remove that CAD barrier! 6 jewellers with little expertise in 3D digital modelling, on this 1 day, each created a model for 3D printing for an exhibition.
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.

Anarkik3D’s ‘3D Consequences’ – update 6th April 2014: Ann Marie Shillito attended both openings of the ‘Wear IT’ exhibition at StudioFusion Gallery, London,which went on until 7th June, ‘Wear IT’ was an exhibition of 3D printed jewellery and Anarkik3D‘s ‘3D Consequences’ collaborative project. The results of the 3D modelling by 4 Scottish connected designer makers had been 3D printed in either polyamide (sponsored by Sculpteo) or paper (sponsored by ITEC-3D/Mcor) and all is on display. The 4 jewellers in ‘3D Consequences’ were Farah Bandookwala, Elizabeth Armour, Lucy Robertson and ANn Marie Shillito! StudioFusion appropriately also stock my book ‘Digital Crafts’ and I was signing copies at the opening.
