Junior Cert Section A
Isometric
There are two types of isometric questions:
Freehand
WIth a ruler
Be careful, if the questions asks for a "freehand pictoral sketch" then you
can't
use a ruler. Other than that the methods are identical.
How to do it
Pictoral
= 3D
Horizontal lines become diagonal
Vertical lines remain vertical
Count the gaps between the dots to work out the length of the lines
Don't forget to
colour or shade
the sketch
