How to | Customize My Graphics
Mathematica allows you to customize your 2D and 3D graphics through a variety of options.
Without any options set, Plot uses a variety of default option values for color, axes style, and so on:
 Out[118]=
Add a plot label:
 Out[119]=
Style the plot label:
 Out[22]=

Style the curve:
 Out[120]=
Style the axes:
 Out[24]=
Style the labels:
 Out[26]=

Create a filled plot:
 Out[126]=
Draw grid lines:
 Out[127]=
Specify manual ticks on the axes:
 Out[130]=

Add points under or over the plot:
 Out[32]=
Add several styled graphics primitives to the plot:
 Out[33]=

The default graphics produced by Plot3D use a variety of default option values:
 Out[134]=
Control the intersection point of the axes:
 Out[139]=

Omit mesh:
 Out[140]=
Control the density of the mesh drawn on the surface:
 Out[34]=

Plot several surfaces together:
 Out[143]=
Control the regions over which the surfaces are plotted:
 Out[144]=
Specify lighting simulation to use for coloring the surfaces:
 Out[145]=
Control the ratio of the box dimensions and add other styles:
 Out[35]=
