DXF files missing?

Recommended Posts



I often use DXF files as a source for laser cutting.

I then edit them (with Inkscape, so far), and export again as DXF, or PDF.


Apparently Affinity, which is supposed to support the "Unsurpassed compatibility" of Affinity is missing such a standard format, also for what concern exporting.


So I need to:

  1. Open Inkscape (in a Linux virtual machine, because Inkscape for Mac just sucks)
  2. Export to an Affinity acceptable format which won't break the vectors
  3. Open in Affinity
  4. Do my changes
  5. Save it
  6. Import again in Inkscape
  7. Check that the file still look like I want
  8. Export to DXF

Any chance you will consider this format?

Because, really, I wanted a better solution for my work but this long process is really annoying.
