I'm trying to work out how to set up the rolling edge on a circle in Adobe Illustrator.
It's for a design/pattern that will be printed on the face of a ceramic casino token, which will be wrapped around the face, along the edge and onto the reverse side.
I know that the spacing needs to be different, so that the edges don't merge at the ends when wrapped around... But can this be calculated programmatically by any native tool?
I'm struggling to work out the best way to do the alignment to the edges/faces.
Further, the edges are very slightly curved - they aren't sharp, so what's the best way to set up my mapping of the face/edge to ensure they're joined up.
Not sure what tools/features on Illustrator best support this?
