How to recreate exactly this shape?
on Jun 6, 2019 at 6:39:20 pm

Hi,
I need to recreate the object in the picture with illustrator.
...and I should mention I'm a beginner, of course ☺



I can't get it accurate by scanning or tracing a picture because it's not flat. I'd like to have it precise by re-drawing it. What would be the best way to translate it in vectors?

Thanks!

Max

A failry easy method would be to make one circle the edge of which matches the shape of one of the protrusions, filling a piece of the inside, then copy it around the shape edge, finally combine the circles into one shape with pathfinder and deleted the remaining inner shape.

Thanks Kalleheikki Kannisto!

That's pretty much what I did.

I managed to get most of it but the outline is still quite off...

You can place the original photo into the illustrator file on a layer below the illustration and set the "fade placed images to 50%" checkbox on. Then you can use that as a reference to match the placement exactly. There are some clear differences here. For example you have 34 "bumps" on the edge while the original has 28 of them.

Thx and sorry for the late reply ☺

In the end I made a fusion from the top circle to the bottom circle and put it on the edge, adjusting the single circles to make them fit the original shape on the layer below.




I think It'll be ok.
