    I think that you would have better information by searching on the web.

    I googled it, and found this site full of most excellent information on Axonometric projections.

    Nicely done eldon, a wealth of information on that link!

    It would have looked better to have reduced the lengths of the red and green faces, to about half of the width of the blue face, rather than doubling them, if this is meant to represent a cube.

    Your example looks closer to Trimetric to me.

    I read in your above link about dimetric.

    It doesn't show how to draw a dimetric cube.

    Can someone show me how to draw dimetric by a projection method?

    Really???

    There was a welter of information. Perhaps you did not read far enough. It will never say "Start the line command" and "Draw a line". You have to interpret the information and draw it for yourself.

    This is part of the information. I am sure that plenty of folk here could make a good fist at drawing a Dimetric Cube.

    The link eldon provided does indeed show how to draw a dimetric cube. You're just having trouble understanding it.

    You can lead a horse to water but you can't rip his lips off.

    Perhaps basty should read up on Pohlke's theorem.
