Make Quick 3D Pie Charts in Illustrator

In today’s tutorial we’ll be going over a handy tool in Illustrator that allows you to make various kinds of charts and graphs — like a pie chart, for example. Then, we’ll be going over how to make that pie chart 3D. Making a 3D pie chart in Illustrator is simply a matter of using the Pie Graph Tool to generate the chart, then using the Extrude and Bevel effect to make it three dimensional.

One distinct advantage Adobe Illustrator has over other vector design applications is the abundance of tools and features it has — one of which being its ability to generate charts and graphs with relative ease. In other vector applications, these things need to be designed manually. In Illustrator though, there are dedicated tools that will generate them for you. All you have to do is input your data.
