  1. Architects need dwg/dxf import to work properly with AD as a Vector Graphic Software. It is simple like that.
  2. They could at least help us with a sensible workflow from Rhino to Affinity Designer. That would already help enormously.
  3. Well I wouldn't mind to buy an Affinity Designer "Pro" Version, with dxf/dwg import. Even if it would cost 100 Euros extra (which is double the price the entire software costs without discount)
  4. They are shooting themselves in the foot, and their clients to. They would sell more copies and have more satisfied customers. They could access a huge market (architects, designers, manufacturers). Noone asks for Designer to be a CAD software. But only to be able to import CAD data.
  5. That would be a huge step forward for Affinity Designer. And make a lot of sense.
  6. I'll throw in 200€. Affinity Designer NEEDS dwg/dxf import/export. Affinity Designer is such a wonderful piece of sofware. And dwg/dxf the most used vector format in professional applications. Here in Italy (land of design) people do exactly this kind of workflow. Draw plans, sections, details in CAD. Afterwards this documents get refinded in Illustrator (for competitions, clients, homepages, catalogues). Once they implement dwg/dxf import/export AD will becoma a game changer. I am 100% sure. In my opinio they should get this done before someone else comes along.
  7. I tried with Rhinoceros 7 WIP. Even though not yet perfect, it writes pdfs with layers which are then read in Affinity Designer. Big step ahead. We need to insit on a reasonable workflow from CAD into Affinity Designer!
  8. I import from Rhinoceros to Affinity Designer in pdf. Directly from Layouts. But I have to make a seperate pdf for every layer, otherwise Affinity Designer groups and subgroups the geometry randomly and you cannot maintain a reasonable layer structure. Which CAD are you using? Have you tried to import into AD via pdf? I've heard some CAD software is able to write pdfs with layers so it opens with layers in AD. Don't know if that is true.
  9. Some time later I was wondering at what point we are. File exchange between Rhino and Affinity should be reasonable, preserving layers. I hope McNeel and Serif can get in contact to try to work this out soon!
  10. Please dear Affinity Designer Team, we really do need help on that! Also when we do import a pdf, Affinity seems to group objects and lines in random groups. This is horrible to work with! If it would at least group by color, line witdh etc. you could handle it. But like this you go crazy. All under tons of random groups and subgroups...
  11. I use Affinity Designer for making graphics and draw 3D views in architecture & design. Here in Italy the most commonly used databse for vectors (plants, cars etc) is the homepage archiweb.it This homepage uses dwg only!
  12. I usually do import every CAD layer as a seperate pdf. So I can preserve the layer structure in Affinity Designer. It works ok, when you get used to it. Obviously dwg/dxf support or another intelligent option would be a great improvement to get data (while preserving layers) into Affinity Designer from software such as Rhinoceros.
  13. Great guys!! Thank you so much!!! Please consider also people who have to work with dwg/dxf files and technical plans. We can all together find an intelligent way of making it happen or find good workarounds/workflows. Architects & Designers are an important group of clients and potential clients. Affinity Designer is a wonderful piece of software, we all do love it. That's why we care about integrating it into our workflows and marekts!
