This example shows the steps involved in constructing an isometric projection of a lamp.
Step 1 – Draw the overall isometric box for the form using a hard and sharp 2H pencil.
Step 2 – Add boxes within the isometric box for individual parts of the form.
Step 3 – Add in the details to each box, starting from the lowest point. Then use a softer 2B pencil to define the form.
Look at the blocks shown here. Each block has been cut from a 50mm cube. Try drawing each block in isometric projection using isometric grid paper.
