Oblique Sketches:

An oblique sketch does not have proportional lengths. Still, it conveys all important aspects of the appearance of the solid.

For example, let us attempt to draw an oblique sketch of a 3 × 3 × 3 (each edge is 3 units) cube.

Step 1: Draw the front face.

Step 2: Draw the opposite face. Sizes of the faces have to be same, but the sketch is somewhat off-set from step 1.

Step 3: Join the corresponding corners

Step 4: Redraw using dotted lines for hidden edges. (It is a convention)The sketch is ready now.
