Another method for working with isometrics in Illustrator.

I found this tutorial on the Computer Arts website. Pretty nice tutorial on covering some basic isometric tricks. I have to admit, I’ve never messed around with the extrude tool much but this made me want to try it out a little more.

  1. Interesting article. Thanks Clint.

    I’ve played around with the isometric settings of the ‘3D rotate’ function before – but I’ve found it inaccurate.

    If you take three identical squares and use the iso top, left and right settings, then assemble the results into a cube – the corners don’t match up. As a perfectionist – that bothers me : )

    I think it would be great if the Illustrator team took the new perspective grid feature and gave it isometric and other para-line capability. If you think the same you can request it here:

    You could definitely see your enthusiasm in the article you write.
    The arena hopes for more passionate writers such as you who are not
    afraid to mention how they believe. All the time go after your heart.
