DXF or DWG file import in Affinity Designer

Recommended Posts

+1 for DXF support. For workflows where I'm exporting drawings out of Fusion360/AutoCAD to laser cut, this is essential. Inkscape doesn't work well on a Mac, and I was ready to go all in with Affinity... but this is holding me back. I can see myself either going with Corel, or virtualizing Windows to use Inkscape, but my future with Affinity's not looking too bright with the current roadmap/dev priorities.

As said before .. im shure there will be special offers from Corel .. hopefully also for Mac. Let's see what happens first!

+1 for DWG support + add some measurement tools for simple CAD. The idea would be to have some simple scale conversion in order to make the DWG import useful

This is clearly very popular. What's the hold up? I also need this.

Programming resources. Affinity Publisher being readied and the others being made compatible, perhaps? 

And there are other much longer request threads than this one as well. And they too are clearly very popular. 


My computer is a nothing-special Toshiba laptop with unremarkable specs running Windows 10 64-bit.

Off topic but I wish Designer were like $3 a month and they dedicated more resources towards features.

Couldn’t disagree more. I understand the frustrations with late feature updates but I believe this way of pricing is one of their selling points.
