AutoCAD Lesson 108

Creating Isometric Drawing

After we watched and learn from previous lesson 107

Let’s take a look these next Topic.

We finish our simple plan and elevation, these time we will going to create isometric drawing in 2Dimensonal.

see video below!!

Follow step by step

  • Command: UN (UNITS) Verify unit and set to Millimeters
  • Command: DS (DSETTINGS) Verify Set be sure to set into isometric snap See video..

Press F5 to toggle between isometric plane… Left, Right or Top Plane.

  • Command: F5 (Follow the video posted above)
  • Command: PL (PLINE) (see cursor direction) (Follow the video posted above)
    Specify start point:
    Current line-width is 0
    Specify next point or [Arc/Halfwidth/Length/Undo/Width]: 300
    Specify next point or [Arc/Close/Halfwidth/Length/Undo/Width]: 300

“Note: Follow the step first, after that you can experiment in you own way to make your work more faster and easy.

Summary:

If you have finished reading and watching video posted above, we be able to make our first Isometric drawing. Congratulation!!!

Another technique in drawing you can use to give life on your drawing for presentation

Remember this is still basics topic. But always keep in mind that mastery of this basics will lead us into advance.

Our next lesson will be all about creating Furniture Block”.
