Using offset path to make a bevel
on May 8, 2018 at 11:48:56 am

I'm trying to create a bevel effect by using the offset path approach. I looked at the 3D approach but found it difficult to control.

Here is a picture of what I'm trying to achieve:

Note the chiseled edges of the bevel.

So i created a path and offset it like so:

I then added line segments between the original path and the offset one:

I then tried to make an object of the first segment of the path so that I could achieve the chiseled look of the original sample.

I couldn't. All I could select were the anchor points for the 2 line segments and NOT the original path or offset path:

How do I add the other paths to my selection or am I trying the wrong approach?
