Ashlar-Vellum Launches Graphite Professional Drafting Tool

Restores Speed, Precision, Productivity To 2D/3D Drafting (October 04, 2001)
Ashlar-Vellum Inc. unveiled Graphite, the first product in the company's new Designer Elements family of CAD and 3D modeling software. Graphite redefines the concept of powerful, effective computer-aided drafting by eliminating features that slow down user workflows, concentrating instead on essential functions and select new enhancements that make professional drafting faster and more productive than ever.

Graphite is a drafting-only product built on the proprietary technology which drove Ashlar-Vellum's award-winning Vellum classic platform. In formulating its new product, Ashlar-Vellum carefully looked at the needs of today's drafting professionals in mechanical drafting, industrial design, and architecture, giving them the toolsets and functionality they need to execute their daily tasks easily and with minimal distractions.


"Our products have always been recognized for their exceptional quality and innovation," said Robert Bou, President of Ashlar-Vellum. "Sometimes leadership is demonstrated by simplifying a solution rather than complicating it. Graphite advances the art of computer-based drafting with a lean, affordable, yet complete product that powerfully meets every daily task a professional encounters."

Ashlar-Vellum?s Graphite features the company's original Vellum Drafting Assistant technology, making the software exceptionally easy to use. Vellum Drafting Assistant enables intelligent snaps and automatic alignments in X, Y, and Z axes, while also associating points, midpoints, tangencies, intersections and other coordinates for smart rendering and modeling.

Also retainedand enhancedis the Vellum Intuitive Interface, the pioneering GUI that set standards for speed and reliability with minimal user training. Graphite offers a smart cursor, right-click access to user preferences, instant stroke command access, plus other valuable navigation and rendering features that allow users to focus on the task at hand, rather than the software itself.
