Planometric drawing is a method of paraline drawing that allows pictorial drawings to be projected from floor plans. This can provide the client with a spatial experience of the build environment. Planometric drawings are drawn by rotating the plan view to so that the angle between the plan view and the horizontal makes either 45° / 45° or 60° / 30° angle. The plan view is then given height by drawing vertical lines up from the plan drawing. The height of a planometric view can be scaled (0.5 – 1.0) to allow hidden detail to be shown.
