Switching Between Isometric Snap Grids

When you create isometric drawings, you can switch between three isometric snap grids: left, top, and right.

To switch between isometric snap grids:

  1. Make sure that snap mode is on and the snap style is set to Isometric.
  2. Type IsometricGrid at the command prompt or press F5.

    Type IsometricGrid at the command prompt or press Fn + F5.

  3. Specify an option:
    • Left: Aligns the snap grid along the left plane, defined by the 90° and 150° axis pair.
    • Right: Aligns the snap grid along the right plane, defined by the 90° and 30° axis pair.
    • Top: Aligns the snap grid along the top plane, defined by the 30° and 150° axis pair.

    Orthogonal mode alignes along the isometric axes determined by the chosen plane. The three isometric axes are 30°, 90°, and 150°.
