Projections Engineering drawings have three common projection divisions. They are Axonometric, Oblique, and Perspective. Axonometric (Isometric, Dimetric, and Trimetric) These projections are orthographical and used to produce representative drawings of an object by rotating along one or more axes. They differ from Multi-view projections (Front, Right, Top) where there is a principal plane or axes… Read More
