Better *.ai import -- nothing ever imports for me

Recommended Posts

I have been yoked to Adobe Illustrator for many years simply because I take 2D vector geometry out of Rhino, export it as *.ai, and then work with it accordingly. I would LOVE to be able to export *.ai Illustrator files out of Rhino and be able to work with them directly in Affinity Designer, but every time I import an *.ai file exported from Rhino, there's simply nothing in it when it opens in Affinity Designer. Hopefully someday, this will not be the case, so I can ditch Adobe for good. Viva L'Affinity.

You need to export as a PDF from Rhino.

 

AD's AI import relies on the embedded PDF stream in an AI file. Rhino evidently doesn't export an AI file with the extra PDF stream.

 

Unless I'm blind, I don't see any PDF export option in Rhino. But I do see that a other users are requesting DFX and DWG import support in AD, so that's just as well!
