Orthographic drawings are typically two dimensional views of an object. For instance, if you were designing a table, you would draw a top view, side view and a bottom view. Should these three views not fully explain the design of the table other views would need to be drawn. When drawing an perspective view in an orthographic manner, you would utilize a 45 degree triangle for the lines that extend back or forward from the vertical lines. This type of perspective is not a true perspective because you can measure the true length of all the details shown.

An isometric drawing is meant to depict a 3D image of an object in what appears to be a perspective view. However, similar to an orthographic perspective, all of the lines in an isometric drawing can be measured to their true length. What makes it different from an orthographic perspective is that its angled lines are drawn at 30 or 60 degrees or divisions of them. Drawing this by hand you would use a 30/60/90 triangle.

In either case, both types of perspectives can be accurately measured with a ruler in order to know the objects measurements.

These principles are usually taught in a drafting class, but may be taught in advanced art as well. Orthographic views may be drawn out on a page to show top, front and side views of an isometric drawing that is also drawn on the page as well. This is a basic drafting design setup.

difference between isometric view and isometric projection

User Avatar

its the hipotanuse between the to drawings. so if u do it rite u wll see how good u r in the economic powerment

I think both are same. There is difference between isometric view and isometric drawing that is of size.

the relationship is complicated.. you should use google to find it

User Avatar

orthographics means line is perpendicular to the view plane,while oblique means line is not exactly perpendicular to the view plane.

Isometric projection is smaller in size. Whereas Isometric view is larger in size. By, Zafiur Rahman LPU, Punjab.

isometric is 30o while axonometric is 45o. Hope this helps.

the similartes between the drawing is the cow jumped over the moon and went home to his momma :) :) :D :D :P :P

isometric view the lines in the axis are parallel dont converge. oblique view is vise versa of isometric view.

User Avatar

The difference is that the Isometric projection shows more and accurate drawing than the Oblique project which is just a pictorial method.

Shop drawings are made specifically to note differences in prefabricated components. Construction drawings are detailed design drawings made for builders.

Aerial photographs are prospective projection while maps are orthographic projection

A two dimensional drawing has length, width, but no depth. An isometric drawing is three dimensional drawing, showing length, width, and depth - drawn on a grid.

Two examples of isometric transformations: 1. Point reflections 2. Reflections over lines / x-axis / y-axis. Example of a non isometric transformation: 1. Dilations

Both are 3D view of an object. With perspective view, the far end of the object looks smaller (think "vanishing eye point"). With isometric view, the near and far end of the object looks the same.
