it to scale.
The isometric drawing follows certain rules or
conventions to show three dimensions on a flat surface.
These rules are as follows:
1. Vertical lines in an orthographic elevation
remain vertical in an isometric sketch.
Horizontal lines in an orthographic elevation are
projected at an angle of 30 degrees and 60 degrees in an
COMPARISON OF ISOMETRIC AND
Compare the simple rectangular block shown
in the orthographic representation in view A,

isometric representation in view B. Notice that the
vertical lines of the orthographic drawing and
isometric drawing (views A and B) remain
vertical. The horizontal lines of the orthographic
drawing are NOT horizontal in the isometric
drawing but are projected at 30-degree and 60.
