  1. Could DXF export be added as a export option. I sometimes have have to send my designs to a CNC and vinyl cutting shop. There preferred format is DXF. It would be great not to have to import my design into cad program before sending it them. I currently use this feature in illustrator and it works nicely.
  2. Hello, my proposition is, we have an option to export curves to DXF or DWG. Im sure there are more people who not only use Affinity Designer for 2D graphics, but also for using its curves for cutting with laser or others. Sometimes i need DXF file for that, and PDF with curves is not supported by CNC. Obviously i can export it to svg and export by other programs, but its a way around this problem and not really a proper solution.
  3. It would be desirable to include basic CAD tools in a future version. Just straight line tool, Compass to draw circle and arcs, dimensioning both straight lines and angles. I think this would make the drawing package more useful even though the app is an illustration app. Especially so in the MAC platform.
  4. Anyone knows the AiVpack plugin for Illustrator? I may need to create packages soon but would like to stick to Designer instead of Illustrator. But I guess this does not work. Opinions or experience anyone? http://erpa.de/loesungen/adober-illustratorr-plug-in/index.html
  5. I've read before that Affinity has no plans to take on a live dimensioning/ CADtools-esque functionality in the near future, but can you PLEASE reconsider! This is such a gaping hole in the industry of environmental designers (and frustrated Adobe customers). Please please consider! -S
  6. Hello I often need to manage cad file like DXF and DWG. Is there the possibility to handle them in any further version? thanks! Denis
  7. Would like to see industry standard DXF or DWG export format for exporting vectors to CAD software programs. tx
  8. Hi all, I am new to Affinity Photo, has anyone got any advice on how I can Make my cad visuals attached look more realistic with this software, what would I use to make adjustments? Thank you in advance.
  9. This comes from some issues I had in the past when doing CAD work in Illustrator. Resolution settings sometimes got in the way. A millimetre wasn't always a millimetre in real world scale but interpreted through a resolution setting. Sometimes, it was so far off that it had to be redone in an actual CAD app. Hence my suggestion of adding a dumb format that has everything but Yul Brynner. I mean, resolution. Just real-world SI units. That also means easier routes to common CAD formats that have no resolution modifier.
  10. Has anyone of you used any CAD program? I had them in school (Pro/Desktop; Pro/Engineer; SolidWorks...) and I think it would help a lot with logo design the most if there was an option for adding visible dimensions. something like this https://btechecar.files.wordpress.com/2011/11/main-driving-sketch.png Also I would like to ask again is there support for 3d mouses like 3dconnexion products? :)
  11. would be very useful if program can import and export 2D CAD.
  12. Hi, as an industrial designer I'm using Rhino (Nurbs-Modeling) to create paths from 3D objects which are then handed over to Illustrator. The .ai file exported from rhino is opened by illustrator but not by Designer. It seems like they use something like an older version .AI (attached) It would be great if the .ai importer is able to read these files. Then I (and some other 3D guys) could drop Illustrator altogether. Thanks for considering. test.AI
  13. Finally found the right page... Would be very grateful if Serif could implement filters in AD for the file types above. Many clients are only able to provide files in these formats. Conversion to pdf and importing is a workaround, but adds a large amount of time to completing a drawing/project. Thanks.
  14. I haven't explored the trial version yet so this question maybe premature. Does Affinity support .dxf export or some kind of .dwg for CAD?
