  • FaceGrids is an option for three-dimensional graphics functions that specifies grid lines to draw on the faces of the bounding box.
  • The following settings can be given for FaceGrids:
  • Faces are specified as , , , where two of the must be 0, and the third one must be +1 or -1.
  • Example: the - face with smallest value is specified as {0, 0, -1}.
  • For each face, specifications , can be given to determine the arrangement of grid lines. These specifications have the form described in the notes for GridLines.
  • See the Mathematica book: Section 1.9.7, Section 1.9.7, Section 2.9.13Section 2.9.13.
