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.
From the window of the pathfinder we click on the first of the second row of little boxes.
Then click with the right mouse button and click “UNGRPOUP” as photos.
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.
If we select our shape and we look at the left window you tools, we will see that there is something wrong in the colors. We select the black and create let’s put it as a side dish. The filling should be null. As photos.
Here is what will appear. We keep the selection and go now has to manually change the grid of our “V”
With the white arrow tool we select all the points of a junction and spostiamoli. in this way we will change the intersection angles of the various triangles. Now, let’s eyes to recreate a sort of tridimenzionale effect. Continue to move the points until you get the edge that you like.
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. As photos
the end result should be this …
Now the ever “STROKE” window having selected our letter “V” as seen in the photo we set the parameters.
Doing this work for each letter you will have our polygon alphabet.
