Ashlar-Vellum has released Graphite 9, a new version of their 2D/3D wireframe drafting program on both Mac OS X and Windows.
The familiar Graphite interface has been updated to include optionally larger text and new icons that are designed to be easier to read on “super-high resolution” monitors. Also new are tool tips with click-through hyperlinks to documentation.
New functionality in Graphic 9 includes the Stretch tool and the Copy along Path tool. The import/export capabilities have also been enhanced to included the latest DXF/DWG support up to 2013, PDF import and enhanced PDF export. With a new Unicode core, Graphite supports multiple foreign languages and alphabets for both the interface and the drawing document.
Graphite 9 is a paid upgrade for those using Graphite v8 or for Cobalt and Xenon 8 users with a companion license to Graphite. Upgrades are available from previous versions from the past 10 years, with prices varying according to the age of the software. Go to http://www.ashlar.com for more info.
