  • Thickness[ r ] is a graphics directive which specifies that lines which follow are to be drawn with a thickness r. The thickness r is given as a fraction of the total width of the graph.
  • Thickness can be used in both two- and three-dimensional graphics.
  • The initial default is Thickness[0.004] for two-dimensional graphics, and Thickness[0.001] for three-dimensional graphics
  • See the Mathematica book: Section 2.9.3.
  • See also: AbsoluteThickness, PointSize, Dashing, PlotStyle.
