DXF Export

Recommended Posts

After waiting for YEARS for DXF support with literally no response from anyone at Serif, this feels like a cruel joke to release half a feature. Very disappointing to say the least.

DXF import without export is, as tac0man said, pretty useless, so I can only assume there are other complicating factors that make this difficult for Serif to accomplish. Some clear and direct communication about it would go a LONG way toward building goodwill and managing expectations for the future of the Affinity suite. Right now, about 75% of my work in Adobe Illustrator involves both DXF import and export for product design and graphic design for things like labeling, packaging, etc.

I don't understand the purpose of building a house with knobs on only one side of the doors.

I instantly bought the whole suite when I saw the that there was finally support for DXF and DWG files. I have been waiting for that support since the first one came out. This is a step in the right direction, but I was gutted and felt ripped off when I saw that there was no export option for them. Please add exporting soon! This is a must for anyone with a Laser, CNC or other similar workflow.

I agree with the previous posts.

Wha's the point if there is no possibility for dwg or dxf export ?

Affinity is definitely not the end of the chain when working on those kind of files, especially true with architecture renderings and presentations !

It's always a back and forth procedure.

Any possibility that it will come soon ?

as it was mentioned before, it is sad, that it is not possible to export dwg / dxf. We would like to upgrade our licenses at the company, (especially with those great prices) where I work, but without this feature, this might be a "no" :( ... Can you give us some info, when might you add the export feature as well? If we don't have to wait too long, we might buy those licenses now. I really hope, we can get some positive news!
