Method of Oblique Projection
The two methods of Oblique projection are cavalier projection and cabinet projection
Cavalier Oblique Projection: In this projection, the receding axes (width) are drawn full size.
Cabinet Oblique Projection: the receding axes (width) are drawn half-size to reduce distortion, but they are dimensioned full size. This is used to draw furniture i.e. cabinets.
To draw a rectangular block of length 6cm, breadth 5.0cm and depth 2.0cm in oblique projection.
a. Construct the oblique axes with two right angles and the third at 45° to the horizontal.
b. Mark off on this axes, the length, breadth, and depth of the rectangular block.
c. Draw the necessary parallel lines to complete the block.
