AbsoluteThickness

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, equal before magnification to of an inch.
  • AbsoluteThickness can be used in both two- and three-dimensional graphics, as well as in Style specifications.

AbsoluteThickness defines the thickness of lines in units of printer's points:
AbsoluteThickness is independent of the image size:
Thickness defines the thickness as a fraction of the total width of the graphic:
Thickness depends on the image size:
