I just started trying out the free version of Affinity after seeing the trailer on Youtube. I find it very nice of course, but was wondering if its possible to convert a 2D shape into '3D', just like on Illustrator. You could rotate it into an isometric grid, so to say, shading, no shading, etc. Its one of my fav. features on AI..and was wondering if its just not available on the free version ?
Cheers and thanks.

Hello ravf,

Welcome to Affinity Forums.

I'm assuming you're talking about Affinity Designer. Feature wise the trial is exactly the same as the Mac App Store version except it's limited to 10 days of use.

Regarding your question, there's no way to convert a shape into "real" 3D objects in Affinity Designer. Soon you will be able to use three plane grids to snap 2D objects to them to help you build "3d" scenes, but all shapes remain two dimensional objects.
