    Rotate arount an arc?

    blamejane68

      Is it possible to rotate rectangles around an arc, rather than a circle?  I need the abililty to move the axiz point, which is why I want to use the rotate tool rather than the blend tool.  However the blend tool allows me to rotate using a spline, in this case the arc I want to use.

       

      The blend tool works fine when I use the "replace spline" command, however my rectangles are aligned in their centers, and I want the rectangles aligned along their bottom edges.

       

      I can't find any tutorials to help...is this possible?

       

      Thanks,

          Val,

           

          You may:

           

          1) Create the first rectangle,

          2) Move a copy downwards by the height and remove any fill/stroke,

          3) Group 1) and 2) to be used as the start of the blend,

          4) Create a copy of 3) as the end of the blend,

          5) Make the blend from 3) to 4) and replace the spine.
