# 45 degree isometric

## Recommended Posts

Hi, Is there a way to make 45 degree axonometric projection of a drawing? Predefined right & left isometric drawings are 120 degree.

Thanks

Use the flyover tool to set the view you would like. You can also save that view to use later.

@BGD have you tried Cavalier 45 projection?  What exactly are you trying to accomplish?

@jeff prince basically I need scaled orthogonal drawing that has ground line of wall & floor @ 90 degrees and ground line of floor and wall height @ 45 degrees. So for eg in the file lets say red is the wall & green is the ground. I have tried to make Wall  floor line and floor ground line as 90 degree, but the the angle betweeen wall ht & floor line is almost 70 degree.

@BGD I could be wrong, but I don't think Vectorworks projection system will allow you to make such a drawing.  It sounds like you want Military Oblique Projection.  You could fake it if that perfect 90/45 degree relationship is not required.

In Architecture Studies I totally misunderstood Isometrics 90°/45°/45°

because I thought and I still think that makes no sense - you can't recognize

anything.

So I developed my 90°/30!/60° fake Cavalier/Trimetric Isometric.

And professors told me to do wrong.

Still, the first thing I always do when switching into a standard Isometric View

is to rotate it slightly so that I am able to recognize my Geometry.

Because it looks so awful for square Columns, Walls and Rooms if it is 90/45/45.

(Asked here for an Option to rotate ISO a bit out of 45/45 many years ago)

Would love to have some non-standard View Options.

@jeff prince You completely right. Maybe the term I am using is wrong. Yes it is the military oblique I am after

@zoomer Thats so true that this projection looks awful practically. But I suppose the educational courses go for 90/45/45 look because it is easiest to draw by hand and the idea is to teach how to go about drawing these projections by hand. So, have you nailed this projection in VW (i mean 90/45/45)? How do you go about it? I have tried my best and looks quite close but still not perfect.

Thanks both

@BGD Are you doing this for class?  If not, what is the purpose?
