Graphics Objects

At the core of the Wolfram Language's graphics language are geometrical objects, represented succinctly and efficiently by simple symbolic constructsto which all of the Wolfram Language's powerful symbolic programming capabilities can immediately be applied.


Point a point or list of points in 2D or 3D

Line a line joining a sequence of points in 2D or 3D

HalfLine, InfiniteLine infinite lines in 2D or 3D

BezierCurve, BSplineCurve splined curves in 2D or 3D

JoinedCurve joined curve segments in 2D
