AbsoluteThickness

AbsoluteThickness[d]

is a graphics directive which specifies that lines which follow are to be drawn with absolute thickness d.

Details

  • 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.
  • The following symbolic forms for d can be used: Tiny, Small, Medium, and Large.
  • The initial default is AbsoluteThickness[0.5].

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:
