Orthographic Projections, ContinuedDimetricprojectionsA dimetric projection is an axonometric projection where two of an objectsaxes make equal angles with the plane of projection and the third angle islarger or smaller than the other two. You use one scale for the two equalaxes and change scale to foreshorten the third axis in a different ratio. Donot confuse the angles between the projection of the axes and the angle theaxes make with the plane of projection. Dimetric projections are used lessoften than isometric projections.Figure 6-21 shows an example of dimetric projections.Figure 6-21.—A dimetric projection.Continued on next page6-26
