[Designer] Draw a earth globe with latitude and longitude lines

Recommended Posts

I'd like to create a globe with latitude and longitude lines.

I want to achieve something like the figure below. Is there some instrument that allows me to achieve this result? Drawing all lines with the Pen tool is too error-prone, I'd like to have a more straightforward way to do it.

I don't know of a way to do it directly in Affinity Designer. If I wanted something like that I would do it in Inkscape (whose native file format is SVG) and then import the result.

Yes, it has. Go to the Extensions menu, choose 'Render > Wireframe Sphere...' and play with the parameters in the dialog that pops up. :)
