There's a train rail symbol in the tools on the bottom of viewport, which changes from perspective to parallel projection.

Not sure what exactly Axonometric view is... :|
A search on Google didn't convince me that what you're looking for is a parallel view as JQL have suggested...

Wikipedia provides this explanation...
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Axonometric_projection

As I understand it, there is no way to create a real-time 3D axonometric view that’s geometrically correct in Thea Render, as axonometric isn’t really a true 3D display mode, but rather an artificial (pseudo-3D) construction, which is great for making geometry for 2D plans, where the 2D geometry will have true measurements on all axes...

Can you please provide a little more information like what modeling application you're using?
Perhaps even an image of what you want to achieve...

From what I've seen so far about axonometric view, I can't understand why anybody would need such a view in a photo realistic render...?!? :crazy:
It would be similar to asking if you can get a lens for a camera, which would distort the view in axonometric projection...

Because it would look cool?

Thea is, above all else, a presentation tool. Rarely thea users use it as reality simulation tool...

In that order of ideas, why would Thea have the parallel projection camera or why would Tomasz blend Sketchup edges on a renderer, or why do people blur thea render output with watercolor styles?

Axonometric seems a kind of Ortographic view, dont really understand what the difference is though. It seems there are many, yet the difference is very small when it comes to the naming.

Here's something i've done a while back using Thea4Blender. Isometric camera setup using Orthographic view. It was for a flyer i made. The feeling needed a bit like cutout craft paper or kartoline, very bright colors!

In my architecture program /archline.XP) I can set an axonomtric view for 3d model, as you can see:

while in Thea Render I can set only the following view:

In technical drawings, many times, we designers, we need to represent three-dimensional objects in axonometry, I do not see the problem, Thea can do it! ;)

Could you explain me how can I set an axonometric view??

I have to set the parameters of the camera?

No, it is simply an icon that converts the scene from perspective to axonometric and vice versa

I have to set the parameters of the camera?
1. insert camera
2. change projection to "Parallel" (this has the same effect as clicking the 'railway' icon in the viewport).
