is a graphics directive that specifies what type of joins should be used to connect segments of lines, tubes, edges, and related primitives.
  • The following types can be used in JoinForm[type]:
"Bevel"truncate the corner
"Miter"extend the corner toward a point
{"Miter",d}extend by at most d times the line width
"Round"cover the corner with a disk
Nonedo not join segments
  • JoinForm[{"Miter", 1/Sin[/2]}] gives sharp corners for any join angle larger than .
