I'm new here, so I'm sorry if I post it to a wrong section.
I'm a begginer with Illustrator and I've got a problem with distributing objects around a circle in Illustrator cs6.
What I'm trying to do is to have these acrhed lines (as per the top three curves you can see below) go around a circle, surrounding it (don't know if i explain myself good...). I was using both blend tool and rotate tool and it doesnt work for me the way I want it. All the time its sort of upside down at the bottom of the cirle and totaly twisted on the left and right... I guess im doing smth wrong, but I just can't find anything helpfull on web..
Would appreciate it a lot if you could helo me!
Thanks in advance and sorry for my English, its not my 1st language.
A completely different way, which may be (un)usable for your purpose is to create the circle with a Stroke Weight corresponding to the width of the arched lines and then in the Stroke palette/panel apply Dashed line with Round Caps and suitable Dash and Gap values (you may try different values until you get it right).
You may use the free Adjust Dashes script available here,
to get an even distribution/final adjustment.
See the image of the transform panel in this manual page: http://help.adobe.com/en_US/illustrator/cs/using/WS714a382cdf7d304e7e0 7d0100196cbc5f-6480a.html
