Are there any updates to the status of this issue?

We write a pretty old version of the ai format. You might have better luck exporting a PDF and importing that into Illustrator

Thanks. We’ll stick to the PDF export workflow. For what it’s worth, it seems you can cut and paste them…but they come into illustrator as clipping groups. Get’s a little clunky though, would not suggest as a workflow.

Hi seems here is the solution,

  1. Select the object or objects that have the gradient hatch that you want to export.
  2. Copy in Rhino.
  3. Open a document in Illustrator.
  4. Paste in Illustrator.
  5. The object should appear in Illustrator with the gradient hatch.

Hope it helps
