I recently did up some isometric projections of a Mercedes engine to illustrate the assembly sequence for a scale model.
Not my best work, and i cut some corners - but it was a freebie :)

Work is all done in illustrator.
The key is to draw it out in plan view and then distort into plane using the values in the attached image isotools.jpg

I actualy made the thing - and it wasn't easy

mmiller no i dont do it for a living, im still goin throu University, but ive beed studying it for about 5 years now, some in my spare time and some full time extra classes. i enjoy it, not just for technical side of it, but it gives me understanding of perspective that i can apply to all means of work, :D
Great Engine, i love it !
