Creative Digital Anarky: 3D modelling for 3D printing


Published on

This presentation is for the 3DPrintShow seminars in London on Friday 8th November 2013 at 6 pm. It present in images the case for why designer makers with all their expertise and knowledge are able to design and create so effectively using 3D digital design and modelling packages and 3D printing. Once they get to grips with the technologies they produce remarkable works of great value: they have the drive and tenacity to push boundaries, and without the constraints that product designers have to work under, the freedom to explore and experiment. More details about this 3DPrintShow seminar:
The presenter is Ann Marie Shillito, Founder and CEO of Anarkik3D Ltd. She is herself a practising designer maker and contemporary jeweller, an honorary research fellow (Edinburgh College of Art) and author of ‘Digital Crafts: Industrial Technologies for Applied Artists and Designer Makers'. She brings unique knowledge and understanding of the creative sector, manufacturing processes and the value of user-centred development to the creation of Anarkik3D's remarkable touch-enabled 3D sketch/modelling software. Developed by designers makers for designer makers to be intuitive, easy and quick to learn and use, this software also provides easy access to 3D printing technology.

Creative Digital Anarky: 3D modelling for 3D printing

  1. 1. Creative Digital Anarky Ann Marie Shillito Designer maker / jeweller Author of ‘Digital Crafts: Industrial Technologies for Applied Artists and Designer Makers’ Founder and CEO of Anarkik3D Ltd Honorary Research Fellow, Edinburgh College of Art Ann Marie Shillito
  2. 2. To participate in, use industrial technologies: need digital data My own work: 1990 to 1998 • 2D/3D CAD • Laser cutting • 3D printing 2
  3. 3. To quote Peter Dormer: “It is not craft as ‘handicraft’ that defines contemporary craftsmanship: it is craft as knowledge that empowers a maker to take charge of technology.” The tools we use as humans are extensions of our bodies. It is not hands that have built our world, it is tools we have made. Peter Musson 2011
  4. 4. Peter Musson: Designer silversmith http://www.petermusson. com Image: Celebration of Calibration • metalsmithing workshop his laboratory: developing/adapting CNC system for his needs: – fine scanning as well as 3D printing in metals. – scripting and processing as a design tool. ‘Which is a good way to waste time, what with playing with it! Who said CNC would save time in the crafts! Ha!
