i am trying to create an isometric drawing of an architectural detail. i would like to draw a section of the detail in flat plane, and then "skew" the section into isometric, and want to know if this is possible in autocad. what im trying to do is basicaly exactly like photoshops skew command.
the closest thing ive been able to find is autocads "stretch" command. see this example:
as you can see, it doesnt stretch "relatively"... it brings all points up the exact amount, rather than bringing points closer to the referenec point up relatively smaller. here is an example, just using photoshops "skew"... you can see the difference:
i think it should be obvious what im getting at. does anyone know how to skew in autocad???
im not interested in insanely complicated workaround using the stretch tool - like moving each row of points individually according to the trigonomotry of the distance between them and the reference... i know you can do that, it jus takes lots of time and accuracy. im really interested in some more straightforward, tried and true method. (although if your workaround makes good sense, that works).
