DXF or DWG file import in Affinity Designer

Recommended Posts

Has anyone done any extensive testing with Rhino3D layers back and forth with the V2 using either SVG, PDF, or DXF? I am doing some testing today, and I don't see a DXF export in the V2, though import seems work with one layer anyway. If you've already done the legwork, please report the optimal workflow between Affinity Designer V2 and Rhino3D. I need to get 2D geometry from Rhino into V2 and native V2 vectors into Rhino while perserving scale and layers. Please share your workflow if you've got this sorted. Also, McNeel is totally open to sharing and helping with .3DM support for Affinity.

+1 for DXF or DWG import.

Import of both formats already exists in V2, and V1 won't be updated with new functions.
