This weeks tutorial it’s about the almighty isometric grid in Adobe Illustrator. As always at vectortwist we try to find the easiest and fastest way to do things and I think I found an even easier way to create an isometric grid and I will share it with you now. We’ll use a single line and the Appearance panel to make a reusable Graphic Style that you can turn into an isometric grid in any document. Yes you heard correct, out of one single line created in Adobe illustrator. 

All we need to do is get smart with the Appearance panel, save a Graphic Style and then expand and turn it into guides! This video tutorial is for all of you that love creating isometric art and use Adobe Illustrator to make it. It’s a shame that Adobe hasn’t implemented an isometric grid, but with this neat isometric graphic style added to your library, you can use it over and over again and no matter what document size you need, and it’s adaptable and lightweight.
