Retrocomputer - My first steps in Designer

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

here´s my first steps in Affinity Designer. I worked long times with CorelDesigner and with Affinity Designer i can work faster and had a lot more fun :). For the Atari 400 and Atari 800XL  i had a photo reference and for the Gameboy my SolidWorks 3D model exported as DXF. With CorelDesigner i converted it to PDF to import and edit in AD.

Thanks for this tool !

 

Hope we´ll get an API or JavaScript/Python for Designer/Photo soon   ;) .

Hello Cartman,

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

Great work, both the illustrations and the wireframe view. I always liked the wireframe views too (from my AutoCad days). I think they can also be quite expressive/interesting when you add weight to convey dimension/depth/visibility/whatever... Thanks for sharing and Welcome to Affinity Forums.
