Precision sketching: the fun way to design.™

It sounds like an oxymoron: sketching and precision. But not anymore. Now you can create and revise precision drawings as fast as your ideas flow. Change your mind? Get a better idea? No problem. Sketch what you envision with as much or as little precision as you need. So easy even non-CAD users can get their ideas across accurately and with speed.

The Vellum® magic strikes again with wireframe sketching so intuitive it anticipates your next move, using our unique Drafting Assistant, as it moves with you from idea to idea. Lithium is great for floor plans, landscaping and garden layout, electrical diagrams, home remodels and makers of all kinds. Need a quick technical illustration or prototype diagram? Lithium energizes your ideas allowing others to visualize and build exactly what you had in mind.

Supporting both Mac and Windows, Lithium allows you to use one platform at work and a different one at home as you create the drawings you need to illustrate your ideas.

The Vellum® magic is addictive — ask any Ashlar-Vellum customer why they use our products and you’ll hear about “Vellumness.” Across our product line, the uniting element is the magical feel of creative simplicity and efficient power. It anticipates your needs and quietly offers help without distraction or intrusion.

Complex shapes made easy — don’t settle for the standard lines, arcs and circles that other CAD programs offer. With Lithium, free flowing, organic shapes with unlimited complexity are as vast as your imagination.

Collaborate with ease — Lithium files offer complete compatibility with our Cobalt, Xenon and Argon 3D modeling software. They are also compatible with any number of other programs across the market. Lithium files are not, however, easily translated into our Graphite professional 2D/3D wireframe drafting program which is built on an entirely different chassis.

Rise above the competition — leading design innovators share a common tool: Ashlar-Vellum products. From renowned jewelry designers in New York and Paris to athletic equipment companies in the Pacific Northwest, from Apple Computer to Scaled Composites, Lithum’s flexibility frees creative people to focus on design.
