# Drawing circle in isometric projection

When this cylinder is viewed from one end, we see a true circle.

As the cylinder is tilted away from us, the circle becomes an ellipse.

In an isometric projection, a circle appears as an ellipse.

The three steps for constructing an ellipse in isometric projection.

**Step 1** – Draw the isometric square with equal sides to contain the ellipse.

**Step 2** – Mark the center of each side of the isometric square.

**Step 3** – Draw the ellipse in four parts, using the center marks as guides.
