How can I fill a normal circle with rotated stripes in Adobe Illustrator?


  • I wouldn't say that was an exact duplicate. Similar, but not exact. – Westside Dec 2 '16 at 9:04

If you want the black lines to be even (ie. not taper at the ends), another option is to used a stroked dash. Here's what I did:

  1. Make 3 circles
  2. Subtract circle 3 from circle 1
  3. Add a dashed stroke to circle 2 the same width as the distance between circles 1-3.

  • This is the way to do it. Super old-school technique, but perfect for the job. Adjustable too! – TunaMaxx Dec 2 '16 at 9:17
  • You make a star shape with many faces like this.

  • You add 2 circles, position them where you need them, centered with the star. Use the Pathfinder tool to crop out the bits you dont need.
