You can try this script.var d = app.activeDocument.artboards[0].artboardRect; var paths = app.activeDocument.pathItems; var circle1 = paths.ellipse(d[3]/2+250, d[2]/2-250, 500, 500); var polygon1 = paths.polygon(d[2]/2, d[3]/2, 250, 300); var points1 = polygon1.pathPoints; for (var i = 0; i < points1.length/2; i++) { var line1 = paths.add(); var points2 = [points1[i].anchor, points1[i+150].anchor]; line1.setEntirePath(points2); } polygon1.remove();

Try the Polar Grid tool (hidden below the Line Segment tool)

You can try this script.

``````var d = app.activeDocument.artboards[0].artboardRect;
var paths = app.activeDocument.pathItems;
var circle1 = paths.ellipse(d[3]/2+250, d[2]/2-250, 500, 500);
var polygon1 = paths.polygon(d[2]/2, d[3]/2, 250, 300);
var points1 = polygon1.pathPoints;
for (var i = 0; i < points1.length/2; i++) {
var line1 = paths.add();
var points2 = [points1[i].anchor, points1[i+150].anchor];
line1.setEntirePath(points2);
}
polygon1.remove();``````

Great, thanks! I tried the script and it works perfect. Can you explain to me how I can change the pieces from 300 to another number?
