I am trying to help a friend fix his logo for printing on a shirt.

It is a complicated logo, a ball using revolve with light spots added. the rings with the same, glows, shadows etc.

It is causing issues for the printer crashing their computer.

 

I need to flatten the vector while keeping it still a vector. I am unsure how to explain it as i dont know what to ask for.

I am afraid that rasterizing is the best solution (maybe redoing the whole logo with gradients is better, but it is complicated and will take a lot of time).

Apart from your main question: No offense, but from a technical or economical point of view the entire construction is some kind of disaster. It consists of about 20.000 paths with about 80.000 anchor points. If you were drawing it properly, it should only consist of about 100 or 200 paths at most. In case you or your friend are going to use this logo often and in different contexts, you definitely should consider to redraw it from the ground up.

As for the white edges: you might want to discuss this with the print service. Depending on the process this might or might not matter.

 

When rasterizing it, I suppose you leave a transparent background?

Can you perhaps show us or tell exactly how this has been made?

I agree. Unfortunately this was created a few years ago by someone else. He has brought it to me to try and fix. I was hoping to avoid the redraw as i couldnt figure out a way to avoid. Thats what i was hoping the community would be able to do. I guess we have come to the same conclusion.
