Drawing an Isometric (3D) cube


How can draw an isometric or axiometric cube (or other shapes) in PowerCADD?


Any version of PowerCADD and the corresponding most recent Mac OS?
PowerCADD 7 and Mac OS X Tiger (10.4.4 or newer) recommended


PowerCADD's Shear menu item (choose Edit menu > Shear...) let's you create a variety of isometric and axiometric views based on simple plan/section/elevation components.

What to do

quicktime Demo Movie(750KB download) illustrates the steps involved to create a simple '3d' cube. The steps to create more complex shapes are the same and they enable you to create a whole host of isometric, axiometric or even exploded isometric drawings! ( having problems playing the movie? )

We hope that helps
