What You’ll Learn

Are you excited as we are about the new tool in our Toolbar?

Educational Value

The Shape Builder Tool can be used to interactively extract, unite or intersect regions of partially overlapping shapes. Using the Shape Builder tool, regions of intersecting shapes can be extracted as new shapes, removed from the original, or integrated into the original. Hmmm sounds a bit complex?

In simple words: think of yourself as a sculptor, uncovering brand new shapes at the core of intersecting paths, by erasing or combining these paths together.

But it's even simpler if you watch the tutorial.
