Here’s how other people have found our courses: 

“I came to Edinburgh this beautiful city to study programme “Anarkik 3D Design” and 3D printing in March 2013, and I have to say, Ann really helped me to understand the processes of 3D printing. And I found the programme Anarkik 3D Design very helpful, especially as the programme is built particularly for artists like me – I found it much easier to create an object in 3D.”

Anarkik 3D Design is a highly intuitive piece of software so it doesn’t take long to get to grips with the basics and from there you can start having some fun. Also Ann Marie’s enthusiasm for all things 3D printed is catching, you’ve been warned, and now I just can’t wait to get started. Thanks for a great session.”
