Isometric dot paper is a type of graph paper containing dots instead of lines. The dots are placed where the lines would intersect on a graph paper sheet. This type of paper is especially useful for isometric illustration and design. If you are an illustrator designing concepts for an isometric video game, like Sim City, this paper can be very helpful.
On an isometric dot paper sheet, the dots mark the corners of equilateral triangles rotates 90 degrees counter-clockwise. Isometric paper allows you to easily create 3D illustrations on a 2D plane. Each of the 3 coordinate axes are equally foreshortened, and the angle between each of them is 120 degrees.
On this page you will find two free printable isometric dot paper PDFs. The sheets are letter-sized, 8.5″ x 11″. The first sheet contains black dots. The second sheet contains light blue dots. I prefer to use the blue dot sheet paper over the black dot sheet paper, because the dots don’t interfere with my drawing.
To download a sheet, click the sheet image below. The PDF will open in your browser. From there, you can save it to your computer or send it to your printer.

It’s a bit difficult to see, but the blue dots are there. This template is best for illustrators who don’t want the dots to interfere with their art. In Photoshop, you’ll be able to select the blue dots and remove them once you’ve scanned your drawing.
