Desired output:

To remove the white lines in the rainbow cone.


I am wondering if it has to do with me using version Adobe Illustrator CC 2017. I first thought the issue was in LaTeX, but then I tried to rasterize the object at 300 ppi and the problem disappeared. I am trying to understand why this happens in the first place and if it can be solved in another way.

  • This is a well known defect caused by the way the rendering engine works. Indeed rasterizing does not necceserily have a problem as the software rasterizer can be configured to supersample or just not antialuas so it has no problem with this.
