Objects you select are redrawn (leaving the originals intact) using the isometric view

Isometric View Planes
ISO View Drafting Tool (Tip #2052) from Lloyd Beachy is a really nice function. Not only is it well written, but it contains several well-executed programmer tricks.Harry's favorite is the built-in DCL file generator -- very nice. Draw the basic object in 2D to get started. Load the LSP file to enable the ISO command. When you type ISO at the command line, a dialog box (figure 1) showing different isometric view planes will appear along with a series of toggles for the type of objects you want to select. Pick one of the views. The program then asks you to select objects for conversion to the new view orientation. Select the objects, and then provide a base point and relative displacement for the placement of the isometric view. The objects you selected are redrawn (leaving the originals intact) using the isometric view. Great tip, Lloyd, and nice coding too.
