The purpose of this graphic is to determine the *unit height* of an agreed isometric tile. This unit height is important to when modelling 3d objects which feature floor levels. The next height level should always correspond to the tile above.

- Need the Hypothenus to get the
*diamond’s*upper and lower tips. - Knowing the camera angle and the Hypothenus, what is the Opposite.
- tan θ = O/A (in which case ‘A’ is the Hypothenus)
- O= tan θ * A (multiply the tangent of the angle by the Hypothenus)
- In the example above, O = 50.4367359
- If O and A is known, what is the angle?
- θ = atand(O/A) (arctan in degrees)

Solve for the camera angle needed to match a 2x2m tile’s height with the grid if the height is 100cm and 200cm.

- 200^2 + 200^2 = 80000
- A = sqrt(80000) = 282.8427
- θ = ( O / 282.8427)
- if O=100
- 100/282.8427 = 0.35355
- atand(0.35355) =
**19.471**

- if O=200
- 200/282.8427 = 0.7071
- atand(0.7071) =
**35.2643**

- if O=250
- 250/282.8427 = 0.8838
- atand(0.8838) =
**41.4729**
