Hi. I have been trying to open seamly 2D patterns on Adobe illustrator for grading and designing. How can I export seamly2D pattern in a file format that can open on Adobe illustrator? Thank you
I believe you can Export as SVG and import into AI.
Yes, although it’s worth adding/pointing out that the “File” > “Export As…” menu item doesn’t become active until a “Layout” view has been created from the “Pieces”, which also need to have also been generated from the initial “Draft” of the pattern.
Hello & welcome, @CHINYERE
You can export directly from Piece mode:
Illustrator should also be able to open PDF, but I haven’t tried it yet. I just work with SVG.
Hi Grace! I am new to the platform and saw how much feedback you give. I have a few questions about outsourcing pattern making and then also one on one learning but could not figure out how to message you directly. Can you email me? Lpass419@gmail.com Thank you
