Create isometrics in AutoCAD in different ways!

Projecting geometry directly – With this method you project geometry from you 2D-projection directly, without defining any projection boundaries. This function is suitable for simple geometry, like profiles and shafts.

Projecting within a box – For more complicated isometric drawings you need to know exactly how the geometry is located in relation to the projections. For this purpose you can project your 2D-projections onto the sides of an isometric box, that you can turn into a desired angle, and you can build your isometric view inside the box, using functions like “extrude”, “revolve” and “plain geometry”. When the isometric view is built (inside the box), you can then erase the geometry of the box with a single command.

Other Isometric Features

isometic exampleYou can easily ”explode” your isometric view. You can create every component as a block, then “explode” the drawing simply by moving the components apart with the normal AutoCAD command “move”.

With IsoBuilder you easily draw thick contours around components. You select the geometry, around which you want to draw an outline, and the contour-function will find the outline automatically.

You can also create isometric text and isometric position balloons. There is also a library of components often used, such as nuts, screws, washers and bearings.
