How can I make a triangle with two rounded corners?
I need to create an image like this one.. It's a basically a triangle with 2 rounded corners.
After reading your question again, I was answering a little more broadly with that last answer and assuming you would want to create more complex shapes in the future.
If you are really just wanting to create a triangle with two rounded corners, and you are using Illustrator CC, check this out:
- create a triangle.
- select the bottom left corner's anchor point with the
direct selection toolthen hold the shift key and also select the bottom right corner's anchor point.
- see those fancy circles at the corners, they are magical. click on one and move them to the middle of your path to choose your desired corner radius.
And thats it. Done!
It wasn't always this easy, Adobe added that with CC. And sometimes you'll need to do things without a fancy tool like this, so I hope the pathfinder instructional was also useful.
Have fun learning Illustrator. It is amazing! Learning to use the pen tool will help you too. But sometimes I just want to know that the angles and everything are right, so I prefer combining shapes to make compound paths, or using some of CC's new features like this one.
