[¦ī·sə′me·trik ′drȯ·iŋ]
(graphic arts)
A method of nonperspective pictorial drawing in which the object being drawn is turned so that three mutually perpendicular edges are equally foreshortened.

isometric drawing

A three-dimensional projection in which all planes are drawn parallel to the corresponding axes at true dimensions; all the horizontals are at 30 degrees from the normal horizontal axis; verticals are still parallel to the vertical axis.

isometric drawing
A form of three-dimensional projection in which all of the principal planes are drawn parallel to corresponding established axes and at true dimensions; horizontals usually are drawn at 30° from the normal horizontal axes; verticals remain parallel to the normal vertical axis.
