  • AbsoluteThickness[ d ] is a graphics directive which specifies that lines which follow are to be drawn with absolute thickness d.
  • The absolute thickness is measured in units of printer's points, approximately equal to of an inch.
  • AbsoluteThickness can be used in both two- and three-dimensional graphics.
  • See the Mathematica book: Section 2.9.3.
  • See also: Offset, AbsoluteDashing, PointSize, Dashing.

    Further Examples

    The thickness of the group of five lines varies from 1 to 5 printer's points; the single line is shown at the default thickness.
