Hello There, 

I work on GUI and I woud like to do this kind of effect: a continuous graphic evolving around a curved line. I just don't know what tool to use.... I tried the blend tool with path, which works well for regular lines around knobs, but this kind of effect is continuous... 

 

Any idea what tool to use?

thanks 🙂

Pyerbass,  Hi.

That was an interesting inspiration piece.

No, it’s not a one trick pony.

Not difficult but a process.

 

I’m briefly sharing my process. Of course, your settings may differ.

Basically  I'm working with Strokes, Effects>Transform, Align Panel, Expand Appearance, Object>Path>Average and then again, Join,

Make Art Brush, One close path, Make Art Brush, Stroke path.

 

See below some detailed screenshots.

Hope that helps you.

You can create brush and apply it to circle. Please review help for brushes. Also width tool can be use to create such a effect for changing brush width
