Create concentric circles / spirals

Recommended Posts

don't know if it is the best way.

but you could try this:

draw a circle with control pressed, than CTRL J , in the transform box:  W -=5% and than hit CTRL j again.

That gives you a geometric progression instead of an arithmetic one. For example, if the first circle has a diameter of 100 units, then '-=10%' will give you 90 for the next circle but 81 (instead of 80) for the one after that.

 

We need a Blend Tool (which is on the roadmap).

Yes, the command J gives a proportional change. The easiest I found was to turn on the grid, invoke snapping, and draw, draw, draw.

Just curious: how would you use the spiral to create evenly spaced concentric circles ?
