How to | Customize My Graphics

The Wolfram Language allows you to customize your 2D and 3D graphics through a variety of options.

Without any options set, Plot uses a variety of default option values for color, axes style, and so on:

In[1]:=

Out[1]=

Add a plot label:

In[2]:=
Click for copyable input
Out[2]=

Style the plot label:

In[3]:=
Click for copyable input
Out[3]=
    

Style the curve:

In[1]:=
Click for copyable input
Out[1]=

Style the axes:

In[2]:=
Click for copyable input
Out[2]=

Style the labels:

In[3]:=
Click for copyable input
Out[3]=
    

Create a filled plot:

In[1]:=
Click for copyable input
Out[1]=

Draw grid lines:

In[2]:=
Click for copyable input
Out[2]=

Specify manual ticks on the axes:

In[3]:=
Click for copyable input
Out[3]=
    

Add points under or over the plot:

In[1]:=
Click for copyable input
Out[1]=

Add several styled graphics primitives to the plot:

In[2]:=
Click for copyable input
Out[2]=
    

The default graphics produced by Plot3D use a variety of default option values:

In[1]:=
Click for copyable input
Out[1]=

Control the intersection point of the axes:

In[2]:=
Click for copyable input
Out[2]=
    

Omit mesh:

In[1]:=
Click for copyable input
Out[1]=

Control the density of the mesh drawn on the surface:

In[2]:=
Click for copyable input
Out[2]=
    

Plot several surfaces together:

In[1]:=
Click for copyable input
Out[1]=

Control the regions over which the surfaces are plotted:

In[2]:=
Click for copyable input
Out[2]=

Specify lighting simulation to use for coloring the surfaces:

In[3]:=
Click for copyable input
Out[3]=

Control the ratio of the box dimensions and add other styles:

In[4]:=
Click for copyable input
Out[4]=
