We begin by creating a grid of triangles, we can do it manually or by using “script to grapher” a plugin for Illustrator which will accelerate us in carrying out this operation.

We take any letter from a previous font we have on our PC. We can also create a new form without using any existing font, like I did. We transform the letter font in the form so that we can work on it. To do this, we select and going to “object> expand”

Position our new form, the letter “V” in this case, above our pattern of triangles.

This will separate all the forms that we have created in the previous operation. We remove the parts that do not serve us and cancelliamole leaving the shape of the “V” which will now be composed of many triangles as it was our grid.

The most important thing, at least according to my ward staff for the success of our work “V” must always be composed of tringoli. It may in fact happen that the initial grid was cut not exactly at the top of our triangles. You will be created trapezoids or diamonds here and there. Here they must disappear. Do not be afraid to move the points and bring them together, or to add the line of conjunction that separate your traps into triangles. Using the appropriate trumento line in the window on your left.
