XAML exporters for several design applications

XAML exporters for several design applications

  • Comments 1
Microsoft Expression Graphic Designer [1] is one application which exports designs to XAML ready to be imported into Expression Interactive Designer, but there are others.

Mike Swanson, Technical Evangelist, has written a plug-in for Adobe Illustrator called AI->XAML [2] that exports designs to a XAML file.

If you're interested in a 3D modeling application which exports 3D assets to a XAML file then take a look at the post on this blog about
ZAM 3D. [3]

Also,
Thomas Goddard has written and released a freely-available plug-in [4] for Maya that exports model and texture data to XAML.

Daniel Lehenbauer has written a Xaml Export Script for Blender and his blog post features a rather fetching 3D model of Steve Ballmer!
