    Angry Non-orthagonal projection

    Hi! I need some help with AutoCAD 2008. What I'm trying to do is to make i display 3D model of a house non-orthagonal. This is how I want it to be displayed
    As you can see, this is a cube, but it's not isometric neither in perspective . it's in axonometry, but the Z axis is not perpendicular to the plane determined by the X and Y axis
    So I want to make a view where the side of the cube, which is lying on the XY plane is projected as it is in plan view or something, but in the same time I can see the volume of the cube
    Sorry for my cheap english

    Hi.
    Acad cannot do that (until someone proves otherwise) - you'll have to draw it in 2d.





    edit - and I appologise for my non-existant Bulgarian.

    You can produce the view you desire by manipulating your geometry to fit the view.

    Switch to the right side view, set your ucs to view and rotate the cube. Now, switch to WCS and In the plan view rotate your cube in the xy plane to a desired angle. Now switch to the front view and and there you have it.
