having equal dimensions is what isometric means.
Isometric drawings and shapes are angled to 30 degrees.
isometric view the lines in the axis are parallel dont converge. oblique view is vise versa of isometric view.
Oblique, isometric, and orthographic
This are orthogonal, oblique and isometric
The difference is that the Isometric projection shows more and accurate drawing than the Oblique project which is just a pictorial method.
Isometric, orthographic and oblique drawings.
1.)Oblique sketch has a more focus on the front side of an object or the face while isometric sketch focuses on the edge of an object. 2.)Oblique sketch drawn usually using the 45-degrees angle to render the third dimensions while isometric sketch drawn using 30 degrees angles.
isometric drawing oblique drawing perspective drawing
In an oblique sketch you have a horizontal x-axis and the z-axis comes off of it to show depth. In an isometric sketch the x-axis and the z-axis are at angles, and the angles of all three axis are 40 degrees each, or 120 degrees total.

The three main types of pictorial drawings are isometric, perspective and oblique drawing.
