Start by drawing a circle using the Circle tool, whilst holding down Ctrl Turn on "Snap to object centre" & "Snap to rotation centre" and create guides that snap to the centre of the circle With the circle tool and circle still selected, you can calculate the arc length you desire by expressing it as a percentage fraction X 360. i.e. (25/100)*360 ...

This has to do with the algorithm that InkScape and other graphics programs use to create gradients, namely (pseudo-code): var gradient = [] var firstColor, secondColor, steps for i in range(steps): p = i/steps R = firstColor.R * p + secondColor.R * (1 - p) G = firstColor.G * p + secondColor.G * (1 - p) B = firstColor.B * p + secondColor.B * (1 - p) ...

I assumed that would be a continuous path moving from one point to the next (as you mentioned stitching) but it looks like they are actually just a bunch of squares and triangles, rotated around a common center. In which case... Draw a sqaure: Use a transform effect (Effect → Distort & Transform → Transform... ) with a rotation and a number of ...

I suggest following workflow: make a white thin lined stroke and start drawing polygons edges with line tool. Make sure you have smart guides on but no align guides. make a small area of polygon edges. select all and switch to live paint bucket tool hide edge color alt click in middle of polygon to pick color click in polygon to color it Once you have done ...

The shape you are trying to duplicate is difficult to draw. It is a mathematical function called a sine wave. I use a different version of Illustrator but the technique to draw one is the same or very similar. Things in Adobe programs migrate from menu to menu so I'll have to tell you what to do by name. Draw a line. Select it. Apply "Zig-Zag" effect. ...

You can simply use a dashed stroke: You can even apply multiple strokes with different offsets to a single live text object using the appearance panel. You can add effects (such as Offset Path in this case, so that the strokes are outset from the text) to a specific stroke by selecting that stroke and using the "fx" button at the bottom of the appearance ...

To color in the individual triangles which seems to be your goal, then you can use the Live Paint Bucket (K) You can then Expand it to have your individual polygons

Not 100% sure what you mean by thick from bottom and thin from top like a tower but I'm assuming you want to achieve either one of these: Case 1: Draw a rectangle, let's say 300x200px with a stroke of 10px. Select the rectangle and in the menu choose "Path" > "Convert stroke to path" (or hit Ctrl+Alt+C). Now enter the "Edit paths by nodes" mode (...

FYI, here's another way to create a triangle with one curved side, using the polygon tool and pen tool in Photoshop. 1-using the polygon tool, create an object with 3 sides 2-Rotate using Image > Image Rotation > 90 degrees Clockwise. Drag a vertical guide rule to align with the bottom triangle point (this helps define the triangle's vertical center). With ...

I found an even easier way: Turn on snap to cusp nodes and snap to object centers. Grab vertical guide. Snap star center to vertical guide. Rotate until the top node of star snaps to vertical guide. It should be perfectly aligned now.

Once you've converted the text to an outline, you could user object>path>offset path to add one or more offset versions (offset path will take positive and negative values) and then just chop the resulting paths up by deleting sections of them. It's a bit of work, but it will get you the effect that you are looking for. Alternatively, if you don't want to ...

Hum. I am afraid that is an incorrect aproach, regardless if the tutorial says it is a perfect spiral. The error is that that figure has a "Jump" in the diameter every half circle. A "perfect" spiral has a smooth continous progressive increment in diameter. Your specific model is an Archimedean spiral. That can be minimimized using smaller fractions, ...

Given what you've tried it sounds like its a very small spiral. Scale it up, position them, then scale it back down.

Marking the status of a list-item is definetly best with using simplest possible solutions, colors are the best in my opinion for that. As for the alternatives you can always go for some icons related to the current state of the particular item. There are many ready-to-use icons such as Flaticon or Freepik and many more if you use your search-engine ...

Try the pst-3dplot package available for example in Texlive. Oh look, they've got what you want as an example right in the manual. If you want to have perspectivity, try pst-solides3d instead. Just in case you don't know how to handle this all by yourself, you can use this link to access one such example. The code is very easy to understand.

I was running into the same issue. I solved it by allowing all shapes to be loaded within the shapes. Right after that I was able to define my shape.
