|Ashlar's Vision & Tradition of Innovation|
Martin Newell, the most influential person in CAD usability, founded Ashlar Incorporated in 1988.
At Xerox PARC during the 1980s, Mr. Newell researched the interaction between a computer terminal and the computer user contributing to the development of such important tools as the graphical user interface and the computer mouse.
After leaving Xerox PARC, Mr. Newell realized his vision of a "heads up" CAD interface, where the user was free to focus on designing without distractions from the application. He developed the Inference Engine and patented this intuitive technology as the Drafting Assistant. The Drafting Assistant is the cornerstone of Ashlar-Vellum's revolutionary user interface. Since the release of Vellum, other CAD developers have tried to capture the Vellum magic.
Today Ashlar-Vellum continues to set the standards for usability and power in precision design software for inventors, designers, engineers, architects and other heroes who change our physical world with their vision and dreams.
