ISOMETRIC PROJECTION

SUMMARY

V. Ryan 2002 - 2010

 

   

Isometric drawing is another way of presenting designs/drawings in three dimensions. The example opposite has been drawn with a 30 degree set square. Designs are always drawn at 30 degrees in isometric projection.

SIMPLE EXERCISE

1. Draw two basic 30 degree guidelines, one to the left and one to the right, plus a vertical guideline in the centre of the drawing. In this example three edges of the cube have been drawn over the guidelines (they are slightly darker)

2. Draw guidelines to help you start constructing the left and right sides of the cube. Remember to use a 30 degree set square for the 'angled' lines.

   
 
   

3. Draw the two sides in place. They should be darker than the faint guidelines.

   
4. Complete the top of the cube by projecting lines with the 30 degree set square as shown opposite.
