Eneroth Axonometric Projection
Distorts a group or component to resemble an axonometric projection when viewed from above.
Eneroth Axonometric Projection

This plugin is used to emulate axonometric views by distorting a group or component and viewing it from a defined direction. Useful for technical and architectural drawings. Called from Extensions > Eneroth Axonometric Projection.

Workflow

For simple models all content is typically turned into a component. A copy of this component is moved away a bit from the original so it's not visible in the view and the tool is used on it.

For more advanced models the whole model can be imported (File > Import) to a blank Sketchup file and  the tool be applied to this imported component. This component can be reloaded in the component browser to update the axonometric view when the master model is drawn to.

A wide range of projections such as isometric, dimetric, trimetric, cavalier, cabinet and approximations of these can be applied by setting the angle for right and left axes (measured from horizontal) and scale on all 3 axes.

Limitations

Since this tool only applies a transformation to an individual group or component and not the camera itself shadows won't work properly. Line drawings will however work just fine.
