How to convert Sketch format file into vector file for Illustrator?

I’m trying to open a Sketch format file in Illustrator but Illustrator doesn’t support it… How can I convert it to a vector format that Illustrator supports?

I only have Windows so cannot install Sketch to export another format.

Answer

Illustrator doesn’t open Sketch files. You’ll need to open it in Sketch and export it to a vector format that Illustrator supports; namely PDF, EPS or SVG.

Which format you use depends on your artwork…

Note: Some effects you can perform in Sketch are not supported by all vector file formats, including transparent gradients in PDFs, and inner and outer borders in SVGs.

…If you don’t have access to Sketch (or can’t get whoever gave you the file to give it to you in a useable format; which would be the best option) you could try…

https://www.figma.com/ – which has a free option and imports Sketch files.

You could also try something like https://convertio.co/sk-ai/ which claims to convert Sketch files (I don’t have Sketch installed to try, but it works OK with other formats).
