Easy to use 2D/3D CAD and drafting for Windows and OS X
Ashlar-Vellum Designer Elements are software packages ranging from 2D CAD through to fully parametric solids modelling with advanced surfacing ability and sophisticated surface manipulation. All packages run on both the Apple Mac OS X and Microsoft Windows Vista and Windows 7 platforms.

Ashlar CAD products are very easy to learn and use and yet offer virtually unlimited power to produce complex real-world design and engineering.
These CAD packages are aimed at professionals working in product design, packaging design, furniture design, mechanical engineering, naval architecture, process engineering, scientific research... in fact anyone who needs to produce designs quickly and accurately.

Various licence options are available including commercial, student - teacher, academic-research as well as short and medium term rentals.

Graphite™: professional drafting

Graphite v10

No other CAD drafting software is faster and easier to use than Graphite - period. With the power to match the world's leading drafting package, Graphite provides an interface that lets creative people get the job done without worrying about how to run their software.

    Mac OS X 10.8-10.11 Win 7, 8.1 & 10

Argon™: entry to solids modeling

Argon v9

Argon offers entry-level 3D CAD modeling without the commitment of high-end professional packages. It contains the same solid and surface modeling, rendering engine and animation tools found in Cobalt and Xenon, but without the high-end mechanical design and extreme productivity features you may not need.

    Mac OS X 10.8-10.11 Win 7, 8.1 & 10

Xenon™: parametric modeling

Xenon v8

Xenon, like our flagship CAD software, Cobalt, offers supreme design flexibility and speed, without the high-end mechanical functions, like equation-driven parametrics and mechanical parts library.

    Mac OS X 10.8-10.11 Win 7, 8.1 & 10

Cobalt™: advanced parametrics

Cobalt v8

Primarily for designers, engineers and inventors, Cobalt leads the Ashlar-Vellum CAD product line with on-demand, dimensionally constrained and equation-driven parametrics that make creating variations on a design faster and easier than ever before.

Mac OS X 10.8-10.11 Win 7, 8.1 & 10
