Can someone help me? I have to build a worldmap in this style - small squares in a circle. The squares should have the same size. But i have no idea how to build this. To overlay the square-circles overt the worldmap is definitely no problem, but first i have to build this circle-square-file... hmmm...
The circular arranged squares can be achieved with blends.
First create the circles: small one for the center, large one for otuside
Cut them both open at the top
Blend them to create thecircles
Expand the blend
Then create 2 squares (for each of those circles)
Blend the squares with the circle as a blend spine.
You will need to adjust the number of steps for each of the circles individually.
Expand all the blends and then use this technique to bring them in the shape you want: http://vektorgarten.de/align-and-distribute-pathfinder.html
Alternatively use the plugin Phantasm (the halftone function) to make this.
Create a circle with a dashed stroke.
Scale a smaller copy and leave Scale Strokes and Effects unchecked.
Create a Blend with a number of specified steps in the Blend Options.
Expand the Blend.
Object > Compound Path > Release
Effect > Convert to Shape > Rectangle, Size relative, without any extra width or height.
