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.

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:
