How to make a bulged hexagon in Adobe Illustrator?
I want to make this shape in adobe illustrator:
I don't want to have to draw a path. Is there any option that makes the sides rounded?
The shape in picture was designed in Adobe After Effects, I made a polygon with six sides, and there is an option in AE called "Outer Roundness" that makes the sides rounded, but I can't find any option like that in Illustrator.
Does anyone have an idea?
It looks like you want a hexagon that has symmetric handles at each node. I don't think there's any standard tool to do this, so use something like
Effect > Pucker & Bloat with a value around 100%.
Expanding this shape and adding points with
Object > Path > Add Anchor Points gives you a shape with 12 nodes that has a nice amount of curvature in the middle of each "petal".
By removing the original nodes with the pen tool, you are left with a nice, bloated polygon.
