Isometric Graph Paper


Recently, Janine from California wrote to us looking for notepads filled with “isometric” graph paper. As that was a new one for me, I went to Wikipedia and found the following definition:

Isometric graph paper or 3D graph paper — This type is a triangular graph paper which uses a series of three guidelines forming a 60° grid of small triangles. The triangles are arranged in groups of six to make hexagons. The name suggests the use for isometric views or pseudo-three dimensional views. Among other functions, they can be used in the design of triangle point embroidery.

The following video seems to really drive home the way in which this paper could be used, and I am SURE this is just the tip of the iceberg. Anyone else out there using or looking for this kind of paper?
