Axonometric graph paper is very similar to Isometric graph paper. The primary difference is that the angle on Axonometric is 45 degrees whereas it’s 30 degrees for Isometric. This difference in angle gives 3 dimensional drawings a bit of a distorted look. Here is a great example of the difference between Axonometric and Isometric drawings.
