cutting one object with another using illustrator
I want to cut an object using second object how can I acheive it?
In the above image you can see 2 objects one is circle having 2px stroke and no fill, second is rectangle having white fill but no stroke. I want to cut circle based on rectangle to make it something like this
Using your solutions I am getting object like this one
by using shape builder tool - (Shift+M)
step 1- make 2 shapes as shown in the image
step 2- keep both objects together and select both the images.
step 3- use the shape builder tool(Shift+M) and alt+click on the part of image you want to remove.
step 4- the unwanted part of image will be removed....we can just play around with this tool....its really easy and cool.
hope it helps :)
