GENNA DELANEY, CONTEMPORARY JEWELLER:"I love the fact that you can feel the object that you have designed on the screen with the haptic mouse.”
BIRGIT LAKEN, CONTEMPORARY JEWELLER: "Yes, I think the best thing is that people see it and can lay their own hands on it to try it out! Then they will experience how easy to learn Anarkik3D Design is. … that you can be creative from the beginning!"
Anarkik3D specialises in a more easy way of free 3D modeling and developing a 3D program for designers, applied and studio artists.
Haptics means 3D virtual touch. It feels like making a sculpture.
With a haptic three armed mouse, you navigate three dimensionally, and with sculpting (the object) you feel the haptics (resistance). Anarkik3D has developed these programs especially for those who want a more enjoyable engagement with 3D digital technologies than they would get from CAD programs.
ELIZABETH ARMOUR, CONTEMPORARY DESIGNER: "The organic, freeform nature of Anarkik3D Design means that I can completely engross myself in shapes and patterns with intricate pieces. Equally; quick 3D sketches can become some of my favorite designs. "
How has Anarkik3D developed such a remarkable 3D modeling tool?
Ann Marie Shillito is a designer-maker, applied artist, and joint founder of Anarkik3D Ltd, which is a spin-out company of 6 years of research and proof-of-concept work at the Edinburgh College of Art in collaboration with Edinburgh University. Computer scientist (and artist), Xiaoqing Cao, is also a founder.
Both founders are women from the creative arts and software development. They understand the importance of haptics and building in an intuitive easy-to-learn interface in 3D. Anarkik3D has established a product that is not feature-driven: this makes it fundamentally different from most computer aided design and 3D modeling programs out there too.
STEFAN WITTE, PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER AND DESIGNER: "Better than when you have a complex program with so many possibilities of which you use only a small part and can not remember how you did things last time."
If you struggle with CAD, need a more natural way to engage with 3D technologies, that complements CAD, visit Anarkik3D's stand. We looks forward to meeting you and giving you the opportunity to try our programme.
