A Draftsman Board Isometric View is an automated projection graphic composite of the active PCB project's board assembly. Its drawing projection representation and graphic style elements are configurable in the Properties panel.
Board Isometric Views are available for placement in a PCB project Draftsman document from the Draftsman Editor as follows:
After launching the command, drawing data is retrieved from the source PCB file, the cursor will change to a cross-hair and the rendered Isometric View is attached to the cursor. Move the cursor to the desired position then click to confirm the placement.
Both the position and size of placed Board Isometric View may be graphically modified.
A selected Board Isometric View will show a node handle at the top right of the selection outline, which can be dragged to a new location to modify the view's size. To move an Board Isometric View, drag and drop it to a new location.
