Isometric Sketch

Look at the given picture of a cuboid.

This cuboid is drawn on a flat surface, but the picture gives us an idea that how a cuboid looks like. Although the surface on which the cuboid is drawn is two-dimensional, the image looks three-dimensional.

To draw a solid shape (3D shape) on a paper, we can use different techniques. There are two main techniques to draw solid shapes (3D shape) on a paper.

(2) Isometric sketches

In this article, you will learn to draw isometric sketch.

## What is an Isometric Sketch?

An isometric sheet is a paper, which is divided into equilateral triangles made up of dots or lines. We can use an isometric sheet to draw sketches with given measurements. The sketch on an isometric sheet has the same measurements as the solid. This type of sketch is called the ‘isometric sketch’.

## Isometric Sketch Definition

The term ‘isometric’ is related to measurements of objects with equal dimensions.

To draw isometric sketches, we use a special sheet of paper called isometric sheet, where the dots are marked in the form of equilateral triangles.

The edges drawn on an isometric sheet have the same measurements as that of the given solid (3D shape).

## Isometric Sketch of a Cuboid

Let us learn how to draw an isometric sketch of a cuboid of dimensions 5 × 2 × 3 units.

Step 1: Take an isometric dotted sheet. Draw the rectangular base with dimensions 5 units × 2 units.

Step 2: Draw the heights from all corners with 3 units.

Step 3: Join the corresponding corners (vertices).

## Isometric Sketch of Cube

Let us learn how to draw an isometric sketch of a cube of side 3 units.

Step 1: Take an isometric dotted sheet. Draw the square base with dimensions 3 units × 3 units.

Step 2: Draw the heights from all corners with 3 units.

Step 3: Join the corresponding corners (vertices). We can erase the side which are not visible.

Example: Draw an isometric sketch of the following cuboid.
