Back with another question. Does anyone knows how to create a object like the one underneath. It looks like it's 3d but it's a flat effect.

    What have you tried? The 3d effect is merely by the distance between the lines that makes it look raised / lowered, these lines are hand drawn, there's no filter / effect for that. Can you expand your question to make more clear where are you having trouble?

1 Answer 1


Here's one method

  1. Create two open paths as shown, drawn with the Pen Tool.
  2. Create a 10 step blend
  3. Create an origin marked with guides, rotate and copy the blend 90° around that origin.

  • It's weird how often I see closed questions with great answers like this. Nice job Billy Kerr.
