Isometric Drawing Tool
3rd to 5th, 6th to 8th, High School
Use this interactive tool to create dynamic drawings on isometric dot paper. Draw figures using edges, faces, or cubes. You can shift, rotate, color, decompose, and view in 2‑D or 3‑D. Start by clicking on the cube along the left side; then, place cubes on the grid where you would like them.
This interactive is optimized for your desktop and tablet.
There are two ways to move objects:
The other buttons along the top navigation serve various functions:
Rotate the entire figure by dragging the image or by using the sliders.
Use the Eraser to erase individual objects. You can also select multiple objects with the Pointer and then use the eraser to erase those objects.
Explode- Change all cubes into faces. If two cubes share a face, the face will not be shown. Note that you can not undo this action.
Use the Paint Brush to select a color before you create an object. You can also change the color once an object is created by selecting the object with the color you wish it to be.
In the Inspect Mode, you can:
You can reset all the view at any point by choosing the Reset View button.
