FaceGrids

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:
Noneno grid lines drawn
Allgrid lines drawn on all faces
{face1,face2,...}grid lines drawn on the specified faces
{{face1,{xgrid1,ygrid1}},...}details of grid lines specified
  • Faces are specified as {dirx, diry, dirz}, where two of the diri must be 0, and the third one must be +1 or -1.
  • For example, the x-y face with smallest z value is specified as {0, 0, -1}.
  • For each face, specifications {xgridi, ygridi} can be given to determine the arrangement of grid lines. These specifications have the form described in the notes for GridLines.
