  • FaceGridsStyle->style specifies that all face grid lines should be rendered by default with the specified style.
  • FaceGridsStyle->{xgrid,ygrid,zgrid} specifies that different grid directions should use different styles.
  • Styles can be specified using graphics directives such as Thick, Red, Dashed as well as Thickness, RGBColor, Dashing and combinations given by Directive.
  • Style specifications can refer to styles using style names from current stylesheets.
  • Any outside styles not explicitly overridden by settings in FaceGridsStyle will still be used.
  • Explicit styles specified in the setting for FaceGrids can override styles specified in FaceGridsStyle.
  • The default style of face grids is specified by the option DefaultFaceGridsStyle.
