Hello! I'm curious if there is a way to make curved lines fit together more snugly - with the same amount of space between then at the bend? I've included a picture below. When I curve the edges, they just don't fit flush. Any ideas? Would be so helpful.

With AG Offset from Astute Graphics, you have more control over the offset path and it works con open paths.

To maintain the spacing around a curve, geometry requires that the radii increase as the path moves away from the center: as the outside of the bend has a larger radius than the inside, a path further outside must have a correspondingly larger radius. Carlos's method, which I have used here, is easy and precise, but it can be accomplished with native Illustrator tools such as the Corner Widgets by selecting and adjusting each path. As with most things in Illustrator, there are certainly other possibilities.
