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 , where two of the must be , and the third one must be or .
  • For example, the x-y face with smallest z value is specified as .
  • For each face, specifications can be given to determine the arrangement of grid lines. These specifications have the form described in the notes for GridLines.
Put grids on every face of a 3D graphic:
Put grids on both - faces:

Individually styled face grids can be used with FaceGridsStyle, and have higher priority:
Face grids are placed on the major ticks by default:
