    Isometric Text:

    My previous blog focused on placing isometric dimensions. In this blog we will focus on placing isometric text in AutoCAD. To write text on the isometric cube that we created previously, type TEXT on the command line and press Enter. Now click on the face of cube towards dimension C and enter a text height value and rotation angle of 30 degrees in the command line prompts.

    Type any word and press enter twice to exit the TEXT command. I am using the word “TEST” as the sample text on the isometric cube.


    Repeat the process of writing the word test on the face of cube towards dimension B as well, but in this case change angle of text to -30 degrees keeping all other parameters unchanged.

    Next select text on the face of dimension C, then right click and select Properties from the contextual menu. From the Text panel of properties palette, change value of Obliquing to 30.

    Repeat the process for text on cube facing dimension B, but in this case change obliquing value to -30. The final drawing with isometric dimensions and text should look like the image shown below.
