    Draw blue circle
    Draw rectangles matching the width of the bars
    Inline the blue circle
    Cut the inline shape from the bars
    Draw and oval to match the top cutout of the bars
    Cut that out of the bars.
    Be done

    -- Draw blue circle

    -- Draw rectangles matching the width of the bars

    -- Select and compound the bars

    -- Copy and paste the blue circle on front of bar and circle (command +F), then size to match the bar cut-off

    -- Select bars and blue radius then Window>Pathfinder>Intersect shape area (HIT EXPAND)

    -- Draw and oval to match the top cutout of the bars

    --Select bars and blue radius then Window>Pathfinder>Subtract from shape area (HIT EXPAND)


    Bobs yer uncle...

    I agree thanks for the instruction and the pdf. I am going to go ahead and do it myself (that's the only way I will ever learn) but having the pdf helps. Now if I can just get my curves correct all will be good. You guys rock :smile:

    If I couldnt recreate this, (which I could) I would send it to the vector doctor and pay him is fee. While he was recreating it for a completely reasonable price, I would drink a beer and watch some TV.

    Not to sound harsh, but seriously, an hour?

    Are you not familiar with AI? Not a graphics person etc?

    I'm just not seeing what the difficulty is here, it should take about 5 minutes.

    Obvious is not a word that applies to any procedure in Illustrator... possibly the single most un-intuitive piece of software ever produced.

    Thank you for defending me Pat. I do know Illustrator pretty well (corel not at all). I was just having a blond moment (and I am brunette) the hour included cleaning it up enough I could see lines and trying to identify the fonts. Plus phone calls, boss over shoulder etc. I didn't want to sound like I hadn't tried before asking which is why I said the hour. Oh and btw I'm a girl. :smile:

    Illustrator non-intuitive? Say what? Dems fight'n words!!! Corel is the most clunkiest piece of software ever dreamt up, :banghead: I'd rather design in Omega first.

    Which makes Omega the second worserestist piece of garbage that ever came out of a box. LOL:Big Laugh

    Seriously, I guess whatever you learn to design in is best! :)
