Definition - What does Isometric Diagram mean?
An Isometric Diagram, also known as an isometric drawing is a three-dimensional representation of the shape of an object on a piece of paper. In almost all cases, an isometric diagram is usually a 3D drawing of industrial equipment. In order for a design to appear in a three-dimensional drawing, a 30 degree angle should be applied to its sides.
Petropedia explains Isometric Diagram
All industrial applications when drawn on paper are represented in the form of three-dimensional isometric diagrams or isometric drawings. Isometric diagrams are the preferred choice by any manufacturer and fabricator to receive the data specifications of equipment before putting the metal under knife for fabrication.
These drawings give a clear picture of the overall shape of the fabricated equipment, dimensions of each side such as radius or diameter of circular openings, length, width and height size of the equipment, etc.
Isometric diagram is a primary requirement by any manufacturer in order to estimate the cost of the equipment to be manufactured.
