Video: Isometric Sketch App Tutorial – Create Perspective in Sketch with Magic Mirror
Hey, I'm Hunter from Skillthrive and in this tutorial you'll learn how to turn any artboard in Sketch into an isometric view in just a few clicks. You'll need to download two Sketch plugins. The first is a Sketch Isometric plugin and the second is a Magic Mirror plugin. Both links are in the description below. After you're done downloading the files, go ahead and unzip them. Then double-click on each Sketch plug-in to install them. Open the Sketch file that has the art board you want to turn into an isometric view.
Then head to Plugins, Sketch Isometric, and Generate Isometric View. Set the rotate, angle, depth, and scale until you get the desired look. Next, select the artboard and head to the Magic Mirror panel on the right side of Sketch. Select "Include in Artboards." Select the isometric shape, expand the grouping, and select the top isometric shape. With the shape selected, head back to the Magic Mirror panel and select the artboard from the drop down. To add color to the sides, select the right and left isometric shapes, then go into fill and select a color using the eyedropper tool. Head back to the top isometric shape and duplicate it with command D. Select the bottom of the two top isometric layers and then turn off the top fill of the shape. Select the bottom fill and use the color that you used for the sides. Use your arrow keys to move this layer down to enhance the isometric effect. Blur the edges of the shape by adding a Gaussian blur and fine-tune the effect by adjusting the overall capacity.
That wraps up how to turn an artboard into an isometric view in Sketch. If you liked this video, give it a thumbs up! For more tips like these and full courses in Sketch, Photoshop, After Effects, and more, please subscribe! Again, I'm Hunter from Skillthrive and I'll see you in the next one..
