Here's Neondude's answer w/ screen shots
- select you object, go to Object->Transform->Transform Each, and move horizontal, in my sample I did 27 pt, then rotate -11.5 and press Copy.
select all 16 items and go to Object->Transform->Transform Each, and move Vertical 32.2 pt, then rotate 11.5 and press Copy.
Sorry, I was wrong with the blend tool.
Another way to do it is:
- Select your vector object
- Right click and choose Transform Each...
- In the open window, go to the Move section and set Horizontal to a value. (I chose .5 in in my screenshot below)
- Under rotate, enter the degree of rotation you want. (I chose 15 degrees)
- Hit Copy. The window will close. To repeat the last action you did, hit CTRL+D on Windows or Command+D on a Mac.
- Do that as many times as you want. (13 times for me)
- After that, select the entire row and do Transform Each... again.
- This time, swap the values for Horizontal and Vertical.
- Hit copy and then CTRL+D again. (15 times for me)
I hope that helps!
One way to make multiple rotations is to duplicate
- select the object you want to rotate
- then right-click>transform>rotate
- enter 'angle' and click copy(not ok)
- Then press ctrl+D do the rotation multiple times.
This way you will have many objects rotated in the same place.
for moving the objects:
- select the top object(of those multiple rotated copies)
- enter horizontal distance and click ok
- Then press ctrl+D to repeat the transformation
- repeat for each copy of the rotated object
