The isometric view looks slightly to the left (negative X), slightly to the back (positive Y), and slightly down (negative Z).


  • Go to the menu View → Standard views → Axonometric → Std ViewIsometric.svg Isometric.
  • Or press the Std ViewIsometric.svg Isometric button.
  • Or press 0 in the numerical pad of the keyboard.


The isometric view can be set from the Python console.

It is a method of the ActiveView of the ActiveDocument. The ActiveView only exists when the graphical interface is available; it does not exist when FreeCAD is used in purely console mode.
