Pictorials Oblique Perspective WHAT IS ISOMETRIC PROJECTION? Isometric projection is a type of an axonometric projection (or

pictorial projection). Isometric means equal measure. As the name suggests, in isometric projection, all the mutually perpendicular plane surfaces of an object and the edges formed by these surfaces are equally inclined to a POP. In isometric projection, only one view on a plane is drawn to represent the three dimensions of an object. This provides a pictorial view with a real appearance. PRINCIPLE OF ISOMETRIC

PROJECTION CUBE Isometric means equal measure All planes are equally or proportionately shortened and tilted All the major axes (X, Y, Z) are 120 degrees apart A VIDEO TO UNDERSTAND

WHAT CONCEPT ARE WE ATTEMPTING TO UNDERSTAND TERMINOLOGY Isometric axes The three lines GH, GF and GC meeting at point G and making 120 angles with each other are termed

isometric axes. Isometric axes are often. The lines CB, CG and CD originate from point C and lie along X-, Y- and Z-axis respectively. The lines CB and CD make equal inclinations of 30 with the horizontal reference line. The line CG is vertical. LETS STANDARDIZE THE AXES NG TH

D CHARACTERISTICS OF ISOMETRIC PROJECTION Isometric lines The lines parallel to the isometric axes are called isometric lines or isolines. A line parallel to the X-axis may be called an x-isoline. So are the cases of y-isoline and zisoline. Non-Isometric lines The lines which are not parallel to isometric axes are called non-isometric lines or non-isolines.

The face-diagonals and body diagonals of the cube shown in Fig. 18.1 are the examples of non-isolines. Isometric planes The planes representing the faces of the cube as well as other faces parallel to these faces are called isometric planes or isoplanes. Note that isometric planes are always parallel to any of the planes formed by two isometric axes. Non-Isometric planes The planes which are not parallel to

isometric planes are called nonisometric planes or nonisoplanes (or non-isometric faces). Origin or Pole Point The point on which a given object is supposed to be resting on the HP or ground such that the three isometric axes originating from that point make equal angles to POP is called an origin or pole point.

D F E Circle & Arc in Isometric In isometric drawing, a circle appears as an ellipse. Sketching Steps 1. Locate the centre of an ellipse.

2. Construct an isometric square. 3. Sketch arcs that connect the tangent points. Circle & Arc in Isometric Four-centre method is usually used when drawn an isometric ellipse with drawing instrument. Sketching Steps 1. Locate the centre of an ellipse. 2. Construct an isometric square.

3. Construct a perpendicular bisector from each tangent point. 4. Locate the four centres. 5. Draw the arcs with these centres and tangent to isometric square. Example 5
