Thickness

Thickness[r]
is a graphics directive which specifies that lines which follow are to be drawn with thickness r. The thickness r is given as a fraction of the horizontal plot range.
  • Thickness can be used in both two- and three-dimensional graphics, as well as in Style specifications.
  • The following symbolic forms for r can be used: Tiny, Small, Medium, and Large. These specify absolute thicknesses independent of the overall size of the graphic.
Specify the thickness of lines as a fraction of the total width of the graphic:
Set the thickness of edges of polygons:
Set the thicknesses of lines in plots using PlotStyle:
Specify the thickness of lines as a fraction of the total width of the graphic:

Symbolic values for predefined absolute thicknesses:
Specify the thickness of curve primitives:
Specify the thickness of edges in 2D by using EdgeForm:
Specify the thickness of edges in 3D by using EdgeForm:
Use Thick and Thin to specify predefined absolute thicknesses:
Thickness defines the thickness as a fraction of the total width of the graphic:
Thickness depends on the image size:
AbsoluteThickness defines the thickness of lines in units of printer's points:
AbsoluteThickness is independent of the image size:
Thick lines can be clipped by a frame without ImagePadding:
ImagePadding->All leaves enough padding for thick lines:
