Isometric Drawing in AutoCAD


In this tutorial, we are going to learn what is Isometric drawing in AutoCAD.

We will first need to go to snap and grid drafting settings for drawing isometric and change the snap-type from Rectangular snap to Isometric snap.

As soon as we do this, we will observe that our cursor will change from the usual one. Now, as soon as we press the F5 key from our keyboard, we will keep that in our command prompt it will be first written 'Isoplane : Top,' and then when we again press the F5 key, it will change to 'Isoplane : Right,' and similarly if we press F5 key it will change to 'Isoplane : Left.'

Our cursor is also moving with the reference of isoplanes.
One thing which we need to remember while drawing is that we should always keep ortho ON. We can do that by pressing the F8 key from our keyboard.

So by selecting our Isoplane as TOP and keeping our ortho ON, we will draw a small box of 10 unit dimensions for every line. Similarly, by changing our isophane to RIGHT, we can remove the right side of the box and then changing our isoplane to LEFT, and hence we can draw the remaining left side of the box.

We can switch between isoplanes by pressing the F5 key from our keyboard.

If we want to draw a circle on every side of the box that we have outlined, we can remove it with the 'Isocircle' option from the command prompt.

So like this, we can draw isometric drawing in AutoCAD by using several options.


Isoplane is a plugin for Autocad that can be used to create 3D models. It is a software that was created by the company Altair, Inc. Isoplane has been around for a while and it has been used by many companies in the past few years. It is an easy-to-use plugin which can be installed on Autocad and it can generate 3D models in just a few clicks.

Isometric views are used to create a three-dimensional representation of an object without any perspective distortion. It is also called axonometric projection, which is a type of parallel projection. The purpose of the isometric view is to provide a more realistic representation of objects in architectural drawings and technical drawings.

An isometric circle can be drawn by using the LINE command, which has a variety of options:

  • The first option is to draw an arc by specifying the start point, direction, and radius. The second option is to draw a line with two points that form an angle of 360 degrees. The third option is to use the RECTANG command to create a rectangle with three points that are used as the corners of the rectangle.

An isometric circle is a diagram that depicts the three-dimensional form of a two-dimensional object. The circle is drawn in such a way that it appears to be slanted from the viewer’s point of view. The slant can be seen from the top, bottom, or front.

An isometric circle is used to show three dimensions in a two dimensional space. It also helps with scale and proportion when drawing objects in an orthographic view.

The benefits of using an isometric circle are:

  • It can help with scale and proportion when drawing objects in an orthographic view
  • It's much easier to construct than a three dimensional object
  • It's possible to add shading and texture without adding too many lines or shapes

  • Drawing an isometric circle is important because it helps you to understand the different shapes that are in a 3D drawing. Not only does it help you to understand the different shapes, but it also helps you to understand how they are positioned in 3D space.
  • An isometric circle will help you to better understand the different shapes that are present in a 3D drawing. It can also help you to better understand how these shapes are positioned in the 3D space around them.
