Technical Support Options
Ashlar-Vellum offers a range of free and paid technical support through email, telephone and our website for CAD and 3D modeling software on both Mac and Windows. The Knowledgebase on our website as well as the Articles and Hot Topics & FAQs under the Support menu are an excellent place to look for commonly asked questions.

Starting a Support Ticket
Our online ticketing system is the key to accessing our support staff. All technical support should start with a support ticket submitted via email either through the software at Help>Submit Support Ticket or from our website or sent directly to firstname.lastname@example.org.
In any communication be certain to include your serial number, the exact version of our software you are using, the OS you are on, and some alternate method of contacting you should we find our emails are not getting through to you.
A support ticket provides:
- An organized place to view all correspondence related to a ticket by both you the customer and our support staff.
- Customer control and a medium to see if our return correspondence is not getting through via email because of blocked ISPs.
- Quick communications, especially helpful for:
- Long file names, download links and registration codes which are difficult to type or give over the telephone.
- An electronic link for screen-sharing through the Internet.
- Monitoring issues by our product and corporate management and development teams.
Each new issue requires a new ticket number. Calling without a ticket number will not result in faster service via telephone because our staff cannot put you into the phone queue without a ticket number.
