# Axes

 Axesis an option for graphics functions that specifies whether axes should be drawn.
• In two dimensions, axes are drawn to cross at the position specified by the option AxesOrigin. »
• In three dimensions, axes are drawn on the edges of the bounding box specified by the option AxesEdge. »
Draw all the axes:
Draw the axis but no axis:
Draw the axis only:
Specify overall axes style, including axes labels, ticks, and tick labels, using AxesStyle:
Draw all the axes:
 Out[1]=
 Out[2]=

Draw the axis but no axis:
 Out[1]=

Draw the axis only:
 Out[1]=

Specify overall axes style, including axes labels, ticks, and tick labels, using AxesStyle:
 Out[1]=
 Scope   (12)
Determine AxesOrigin automatically:
Specify AxesOrigin explicitly:
In 3D, axes are drawn on the bounding box edges:
Choose the bounding box edges automatically to draw the axes:
Specify the edges explicitly, using AxesEdge:
Specify the style of each axis:
Display the axes without the bounding box:
Specify a label for each axis:
Use labels based on variables specified in Plot3D:
Draw the axes but no tick marks:
Place tick marks automatically:
Draw tick marks at the specified positions:
In 2D, the axes are drawn above the graphics:
Objects in Epilog are drawn on top of any graphics, including the axes:
If the option Frame is set to True, the ticks are drawn on the edges of the frame:
GridLines puts grids across the image:
FaceGrids puts grids on the faces of the bounding box in 3D:
By default, DensityPlot and related functions display the frame, instead of the axes:
If Frame and Axes are both present, the axes ticks are suppressed:
Move the axes using a locator:
