    no problem, again here you go ... with pleasure for a fellow Maccer

    in AI, draw a line ( keep the shift pressed)
    then use the selection tool and click & drag it away to duplicate it while holding down the shift & alt key //
    once you have done this press the command key + D to redo your last action

    copy them all & paste them in a new layer & make shure you rotate them


    btw when you play with the line-thickness every 10 lines or so it even get niccer---

    Gotta love the CTRL D function.
    It also works well for scaling objects.

    Say you need to decrease your object a little, but you dont know how much. Go to 'Scale' then hit about 95%

    You can get it perfect by hitting CTRL D several times, thereby decreasing it by 5% each time. NICE.
