Does the assignment instructions actually use the word oblique? Personally, as regards the object (gear) you must draw, I don't see the benefit to creating an oblique view. In this situation I'd say an isometric view would be more preferable.

well our instructor literally just said make a view of the object similar to that of the second figure's which I thought was in oblique view

Since he said "similar" I might interpret that as being isometric. Who's to say? So, for example, you might have this...

Add a little hatching and you're done.

it should be in oblique/cavalier view apparently according to a classmate I asked

IMHO, that type of projection is obsolete in CAD. I would make sure you are understanding the assignment correctly by checking with your instructor before proceeding.

Have you studied object orientations rules for the construction of oblique projection?

You are correct and you have a good example of what is wanted. What help are you actually needing? You draw the gear front view and then receding lines all at a common angle.

Simple diagram explaining the concept of oblique projection.

Make a front view drawing of the object then make a copy of it at and angle of 45° up to the right a distance of 0.75. Make another copy at an angle of 225° (45° down to the left) a distance of 1.37 (2.12-.75). Then edit as necessary.

I think the OP has to create an oblique view of a gear.
