The Perspective Grid tool allows you to display a perspective grid that you can use to draw shapes and create scenes with 1, 2, or 3-point perspective. For example, you can create a row of trees down a street to create perspective. The perspective grid provides presets with a 1, 2, or 3-point perspective to help you get started. You can change the viewing angle and distance along with widgets to control vanishing points, horizon height, ground level, and the origin. You can draw objects directly on the perspective grid or attach existing ones to it. If you want to match the depth or height of an existing perspective object, you can use the Move Plane To Match Object command to adjust the grid, so you can draw or adjust another object to it.

1. Click the Perspective Grid tool on the Tools panel.

  • If the grid doesn’t appear, click the View menu, point to Perspective Grid, and then click Show Grid.

2. To select a perspective grid preset, click the View menu, point to Perspective Grid, point to a Point Perspective (One, Two, or Three), and then select a preset.

3. To draw objects on the grid, do any of the following:
