Does Affinity Designer have 3D Extrude and Bevel Options?

Recommended Posts

No, they do not. Version 1 of Designer does not have these 3D features. I will also add that Adobe for years early on (mid-90s) had a separate 3D program called Adobe Dimensions. If I remember right it got up to version 4 but had lackluster sales and then Adobe folded these 3D features into Illustrator.

Similarly, Adobe had another program Adobe Streamline that did bitmap tracing to vectors and it got up to version 4. They also discontinued this program and folded it into Illustrator.

It is quite a luxury for Adobe to be able to develop these programs and then be able to pick the best bits and merge them into Illustrator. I think we Affinity users have to appreciate that it is not an easy ask to expect Designer to get 3D features or vector tracing/conversion with a snap of the fingers.
