Yes you can achieve this with Affinity Designer; it will be easier if you use the recent Customer Beta version as it includes some grid and snapping improvements specifically for this kind of illustration.

 

https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/forum/15-affinity-designer-beta (go to the top post of the top thread in the linked forum).

 

The Affinity Designer Customer Beta requires that you have the Mac App Store version also installed, and it will work alongside it indefinitely (although we recommend you update it when prompted). If you do not have the Mac App Store version of Affinity Designer installed, the Customer Beta release can only work as a 10 day trial.

 

Cheers, Dale.

Yes sorry for that, MEB is right, you need to use an isometric grid. In the beta version of Affinity Designer you will find a Grid and Axis Manager in the View menu. You can set up a nice 3-axis grid that will make this kind of illustration far easier to achieve compared to using the current Mac App Store release of the app.

 

Uncheck Use automatic grid to set up a grid with your own choice of spacing, choosing a preset like Isometric from the drop-down list to make it easy if you wish.

Can I use the ai actions I created for left, right and top isometric planes in Affinity Designer? Love the isometric grid.

Actions are not support at the moment, sorry.
