Thickness

Thickness[r]

is a graphics directive which specifies that lines which follow are to be drawn with thickness r. The thickness r is given as a fraction of the horizontal plot range.

Details

  • Thickness can be used in both two- and three-dimensional graphics, as well as in Style specifications.
  • The following symbolic forms for r can be used: Tiny, Small, Medium, and Large. These specify absolute thicknesses independent of the overall size of the graphic.
