Our 2D-3D drafting program (Graphite) and 3D modeling software (Cobalt, Xenon and Argon) can not be run on Apple's new OS Catalina (10.15) because Catalina will only run 64-bit applications. We’ve been working diligently to be ready for Catalina’s release, unfortunately, we’re not ready yet.

Catalina was released on October 7, 2019, and we anticipate that we will have new releases of our products ready within another 90 to 150 days. Sooner for Cobalt, Xenon, Argon, later for Graphite.

The above said, in any case, we would not advise ANYONE to run Catalina until it has "seasoned" for a few months. Each release of macOS over the last 15 years has proven problematical for a significant number of Apple customers until after Apple has had a chance to resolve their first batch of real-world issues.

If you have already installed Catalina, not all is lost, let us know at support (support@ashlar.com) and we’ll provide some advice on some ways to get access to your files.
