ellipse can be drawn. Where, however, a geometric ellipse gives too elongated a shape, an approximate ellipse of four arcs corresponding to the isometric projection of a circle can be used as shown in 345:6. First construct a rhombus whose sides are equal to the diameter of the circle which is to be the basis of the ellipse. Draw in the diagonals and from point A bisect two sides of the rhombus at E, F. With radius CE and centres C and D describe the smaller arcs, and with centres A and B the larger arcs.
