Outline on the inside, in illustrator
I have a shape in illustrator, an outline of a guitar, and I would like to add an outline on the inside, so as to represent binding. I need it to be around 1mm perfectly aligned along the outside path.
I have attempted this using outline and using scale. Any idea on how to achieve this? Any help would be great, thanks folks.
You can use path offset. Select the path for guitar outline. Go to Object -> Path -> Offset Path. For inside offsets, use a negative number.
Other option if you don't want to calculate anything:
Simply duplicate that outline you already have (menu "object", then "transform" then "copy" with the 0 value everywhere)
Then set your outlines to "Align stroke to inside" in the stroke panel.
