    AutoCAD Better Ways of Drawing Isometric Views ??

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Help Please,
    I am trying to draw isometric views for Pressure Vessel. it's a 2-D draft on Autocad 2006

    My question is that are there any better ways of drawing isometric views rather than just drawing lot of 'Construction Line'. ??

    I have searched help in AutoCad and every book I can think (Autocad Bibkle) but no where could find on projected views.

    Your approach are warm welcomed.

    Yes. At the command line type SNAP, the type "S" for STYLE, then type "I" for Isometric. Answer the two remaining prompts. You can control the isometric cross-hairs using the <Ctrl>+<E> keys to cycle through the iso-planes of top, right and left.
