I am a beginner when using Adobe Illustrator so I have been searching the web for answers and tips. I came across this thread about Isometric design using a grid and someone mentioned something about using an isometric segmented grid. How would I set up a segmented grid?

  • @joojaa explains the grid creation HERE which he also links to in the question you linked to. Simply follow the link.

  • I read that post too. But he doesn't explain how to create a segmented grid. I have been trying to use the stroke panel and adjust dashes and gaps to make the segments align, no luck so far. Ill keep trying Commented Oct 17, 2019 at 23:53
  • @IsionIndustries are you talking about what I used in this answer?

  • @joojaa, it sounds like the OP is struggling with the "Make vertical lines and rotate the field 2 times with 120 degree offset" part. Maybe you could make a gif of that? I might do it later if I have the time.

For those who are still wondering, here's an Isometric Grid Template I made with the grid overlaying an artwork layer.

You are free to download and use as desired.

I made a bunch of triangles laid out, then applied a thin dashed stroke at a lower opacity on a locked layer above the artwork.
