Default value: none.

If enhanced3d is none, surfaces are not colored in 3D plots. In order to get a colored surface, a list must be assigned to option enhanced3d, where the first element is an expression and the rest are the names of the variables or parameters used in that expression. A list such [f(x,y,z), x, y, z] means that point [x,y,z] of the surface is assigned number f(x,y,z), which will be colored according to the actual palette. For those 3D graphic objects defined in terms of parameters, it is possible to define the color number in terms of the parameters, as in [f(u), u], as in objects parametric and tube, or [f(u,v), u, v], as in object parametric_surface. While all 3D objects admit the model based on absolute coordinates, [f(x,y,z), x, y, z], only two of them, namely explicit and elevation_grid, accept also models defined on the [x,y] coordinates, [f(x,y), x, y]. 3D graphic object implicit accepts only the [f(x,y,z), x, y, z] model. Object points accepts also the [f(x,y,z), x, y, z] model, but when points have a chronological nature, model [f(k), k] is also valid, being k an ordering parameter.

When enhanced3d is assigned something different to none, options color and surface_hide are ignored.

The names of the variables defined in the lists may be different to those used in the definitions of the graphic objects.

In order to maintain back compatibility, enhanced3d = false is equivalent to enhanced3d = none, and enhanced3d = true is equivalent to enhanced3d = [z, x, y, z]. If an expression is given to enhanced3d, its variables must be the same used in the surface definition. This is not necessary when using lists.

See option palette to learn how palettes are specified.

explicit object with coloring defined by the [f(x,y,z), x, y, z] model.

explicit object with coloring defined by the [f(x,y), x, y] model. The names of the variables defined in the lists may be different to those used in the definitions of the graphic objects; in this case, r corresponds to x, and s to y.

(%i2) draw3d(
        enhanced3d = [sin(r*s), r, s],
        explicit(20*exp(-x^2-y^2)-10, x, -3, 3, y, -3, 3))$

        parametric(sin(u)^2,cos(u), u, u, 0, 4*%pi))$


parametric object with coloring defined by the [f(u), u] model. In this case, (u-1)^2 is a shortcut for [(u-1)^2,u].

(%i4) draw3d(
        nticks = 60,
        line_width = 3,
        enhanced3d = (u-1)^2,
        parametric(cos(5*u)^2,sin(7*u), u-2, u, 0, 2))$


elevation_grid object with coloring defined by the [f(x,y), x, y] model.

(%i5) m: apply(matrix,
        makelist(makelist(cos(i^2/80-k/30), k, 1, 30), i, 1, 20))$

(%i6) draw3d(
        enhanced3d = [cos(x*y*10), x, y],
        elevation_grid(m, -1, -1, 2, 2),
        xlabel = "x",
        ylabel = "y");

Maxima – 260 – draw – 7


Continuo da qui, copio dal Reference Manual, PDF scaricabile da qui, sono a p.802.

Default value: "data.gnuplot".

This is the name of the file with the numeric data needed by Gnuplot to build the requested plot.

Since this is a global graphics option, its position in the scene description does not matter. It can be also used as an argument of function draw.

See example in gnuplot_file_name.

Default value: 5.

This is the delay in 1/100 seconds of frames in animated gif files.

Since this is a global graphics option, its position in the scene description does not matter. It can be also used as an argument of function draw.

(%i1) draw(
        delay = 100,
        file_name = "zzz",
        terminal = 'animated_gif,
3 frames in animation sequence
(%o1)          [gr2d(explicit), gr2d(explicit), gr2d(explicit)]


Option delay is only active in animated gif’s; it is ignored in any other case. See also terminal, and dimensions.

Default value: [600,500].

Dimensions of the output terminal. Its value is a list formed by the width and the height. The meaning of the two numbers depends on the terminal you are working with.

With terminals gif, animated_gif, png, jpg, svg, screen, wxt, and aquaterm, the integers represent the number of points in each direction. If they are not intergers, they are rounded.

With terminals eps, eps_color, pdf, and pdfcairo, both numbers represent hundredths of cm, which means that, by default, pictures in these formats are 6 cm in width and 5 cm in height.

Since this is a global graphics option, its position in the scene description does not matter. It can be also used as an argument of function draw.

Option dimensions applied to file output and to wxt canvas.

(%i2) draw2d(
        dimensions = [300,300],
        terminal = 'png,
        explicit(x^4,x,-1,1)) $

(%i3) draw2d(
        dimensions = [300,300],
        terminal = 'wxt,
        explicit(x^4,x,-1,1)) $


Il file maxima_out.png è uguale alla window prodotta da wxt.

Option dimensions applied to eps output. We want an eps file with A4 portrait dimensions.

(%i4) A4portrait: 100*[21, 29.7]$

(%i5) draw3d(
        dimensions = A4portrait,
        terminal = 'eps,
        explicit(x^2-y^2,x,-2,2,y,-2,2)) $
$ file maxima_out.eps
maxima_out.eps: PostScript document text conforming DSC level 2.0, type EPS

When true, functions to be drawn are considered as complex functions whose real part value should be plotted; when false, nothing will be plotted when the function does not give a real value.

This option affects objects explicit and parametric in 2D and 3D, and parametric_surface.

(%i6) draw2d(
        draw_realpart = false,
        explicit(sqrt(x^2 - 4*x) - x, x, -1, 5),
        color = red,
        draw_realpart = true,
        parametric(x,sqrt(x^2 - 4*x) - x + 1, x, -1, 5));
(%o6)                    [gr2d(explicit, parametric)]


Maxima – 259 – draw – 6


Continuo da qui, copio dal Reference Manual, PDF scaricabile da qui, sono a p.798.

Default value: true.

If colorbox is true, a color scale without label is drawn together with image 2D objects, or coloured 3d objects. If colorbox is false, no color scale is shown. If colorbox is a string, a color scale with label is drawn.

Since this is a global graphics option, its position in the scene description does not matter.

Color scale and images.

(%i1) im: apply('matrix,
                makelist(makelist(random(200), i, 1, 30), i, 1, 30))$

(%i2) draw(
        gr2d(image(im, 0, 0, 30, 30)),
        gr2d(colorbox = false, image(im, 0, 0, 30, 30))


Color scale and 3D coloured object.

(%i3) draw3d(
        colorbox = "Magnitude",
        enhanced3d = true,
        explicit(x^2+y^2, x, -1, 1, y, -1, 1))$


See also palette_draw.

columns is the number of columns in multiple plots.

Since this is a global graphics option, its position in the scene description does not matter. It can be also used as an argument of function draw.

(%i4) scene1: gr2d(title = "Ellipse",
                nticks = 30,
                parametric(2*cos(t), 5*sin(t), t, 0, 2*%pi))$

(%i5) scene2: gr2d(title = "Triangle",
                polygon([4, 5, 7], [6, 4, 2]))$
(%i6) draw(scene1, scene2, columns = 2)$


Default value: none.

Option contour enables the user to select where to plot contour lines. Possible values are:

  • none: no contour lines are plotted.
  • base: contour lines are projected on the xy plane.
  • surface: contour lines are plotted on the surface.
  • both: two contour lines are plotted: on the xy plane and on the surface.
  • map: contour lines are projected on the xy plane, and the view point is set just in the vertical.

Since this is a global graphics option, its position in the scene description does not matter.

(%i7) draw3d(explicit(20*exp(-x^2-y^2)-10, x, 0, 2, y, -3, 3),
             contour_levels = 15,

             contour = map) $


Default value: 5.

This graphic option controls the way contours are drawn. contour_levels can be set to a positive integer number, a list of three numbers or an arbitrary set of numbers:

  • When option contour_levels is bounded to positive integer n, n contour lines will be drawn at equal intervals. By default, five equally spaced contours are plotted.
  • When option contour_levels is bounded to a list of length three of the form [lowest, s, highest], contour lines are plotted from lowest to highest in steps of s.
  • When option contour_levels is bounded to a set of numbers of the form {n1, n2, ...}, contour lines are plotted at values n1, n2, ....

Since this is a global graphics option, its position in the scene description does not matter.

Ten equally spaced contour lines. The actual number of levels can be adjusted to give simple labels.

             contour = both,

              contour = both,

Maxima – 258 – draw – 5


Continuo da qui, copio dal Reference Manual, PDF scaricabile da qui, sono a p.793.

Default value: [false, false]

A list with two possible elements, true and false, indicating whether the extremes of a graphic object tube remain closed or open. By default, both extremes are left open.

Setting capping = false is equivalent to capping = [false, false], and capping = true is equivalent to capping = [true, true].

(%i1) draw3d(
        capping = [false, true],
        tube(0, 0, a, 1, a, 0, 8) )$


(%i1) draw3d(
        capping = [true, true],
        tube(0, 0, a, 1, a, 0, 8) )$


Default value: auto.

If cbrange is auto, the range for the values which are colored when enhanced3d is not false is computed automatically. Values outside of the color range use color of the nearest extreme.

When enhanced3d or colorbox is false, option cbrange has no effect.

If the user wants a specific interval for the colored values, it must be given as a Maxima list, as in cbrange=[-2, 3].

Since this is a global graphics option, its position in the scene description does not matter.

(%i2) draw3d (
        enhanced3d = true,
        color = green,
        cbrange = [-3,10],
        explicit(x^2+y^2, x,-2,2,y,-2,2)) $


See also enhanced3d, colorbox and cbtics.

Default value: auto.

This graphic option controls the way tic marks are drawn on the colorbox when option enhanced3d is not false.

When enhanced3d or colorbox is false, option cbtics has no effect.

See xtics for a complete description.

(%i3) draw3d (
        enhanced3d = true,
        color = green,
        cbtics = {["High", 10],["Medium", 05],["Low", 0]},
        cbrange = [0, 10],
        explicit(x^2+y^2, x, -2, 2, y, -2, 2))$


Default value: blue.

color specifies the color for plotting lines, points, borders of polygons and labels.

Colors can be given as names or in hexadecimal rgb code. If a gnuplot version >= 5.0 is used and the terminal that is in use supports this rgba colors with transparency information are also supported.

Available color names are:

Opzioni grafiche

Default value: 10.

adapt_depth is the maximum number of splittings used by the adaptive plotting routine.

This option is relevant only for 2d explicit functions. See also nticks.

Default value: false.

With option allocation it is possible to place a scene in the output window at will; this is of interest in multiplots. When false, the scene is placed automatically, depending on the value assigned to option columns. In any other case, allocation must be set to a list of two pairs of numbers; the first corresponds to the position of the lower left corner of the scene, and the second pair gives the width and height of the plot. All quantities must be given in relative coordinates, between 0 and 1.

In site graphics

(%i1) draw(
          allocation = [[1/4, 1/4],[1/2, 1/2]],
          grid = true)) $


Multiplot with selected dimensions

(%i2) draw(
        terminal = wxt,
          allocation = [[0, 0],[1, 1/4]],
          explicit(x^2, x, -1, 1)),
          allocation = [[0, 1/4],[1, 3/4]],
          explicit(x^2+y^2, x, -1, 1, y, -1, 1)))$


See also option columns.

Default value: true.

If axis_3d is true, the x, y and z axis are shown in 3d scenes. Since this is a global graphics option, its position in the scene description does not matter.

(%i4) draw3d(axis_3d = true,
             explicit(sin(x^2+y^2), x, -2, 2, y, -2, 2) )$


See also axis_bottom, axis_left, axis_top, and axis_right for axis in 2d.

Default value: true.

If axis_bottom is true, the bottom axis is shown in 2d scenes. Since this is a global graphics option, its position in the scene description does not matter.

(%i5) draw2d(axis_bottom = false,
             explicit(x^3, x, -1, 1))$

See also axis_left, axis_top, axis_right and axis_3d.

Default value: true.

If axis_left is true, the left axis is shown in 2d scenes. Since this is a global graphics option, its position in the scene description does not matter.

(%i7) draw2d(axis_left = false,
             explicit(x^3, x, -1, 1))$


See also axis_bottom, axis_top, axis_right and axis_3d.

Default value: true.

If axis_right is true, the right axis is shown in 2d scenes. Since this is a global graphics option, its position in the scene description does not matter.

(%i8) draw2d(axis_right = false,
             explicit(x^3, x, -1, 1))$

See also axis_bottom, axis_left, axis_top and axis_3d.

Default value: true.

If axis_top is true, the top axis is shown in 2d scenes. Since this is a global graphics option, its position in the scene description does not matter.

(%i9) draw2d(axis_top = false,
             explicit(x^3, x, -1, 1))$

See also axis_bottom, axis_left, axis_right, and axis_3d.

Default value: white

Sets the background color for terminals. Since this is a global graphics option, its position in the scene description does not matter.

This option das not work with terminals epslatex and epslatex_standalone. See also color.

(%i11) draw2d(background_color = light_blue,
              explicit(x^3, x, -1, 1))$


Default value: true.

If border is true, borders of polygons are painted according to line_type and line_width.

This option affects polygon, rectangle and ellipse in gr2d.

(%i12) draw2d(color = brown,
              line_width = 8,
              border = false,
              fill_color = blue,
              polygon([[5,2],[9,2],[7,5]]) )$

Maxima – 256 – draw – 3


Continuo da qui, copio dal Reference Manual, PDF scaricabile da qui, sono a p.787.

draw2d (argument_1, ...)
This function is a shortcut for draw(gr2d(options, ..., graphic_object, ...)). It can be used to plot a unique scene in 2d, as can be seen in most examples below. See also draw and gr2d.

draw3d (argument_1, ...)
This function is a shortcut for draw(gr3d(options, ..., graphic_object, ...)). It can be used to plot a unique scene in 3d, as can be seen in many examples below. See also draw and gr3d.

draw_file (graphic option, ..., graphic object, ...)
Saves the current plot into a file. Accepted graphics options are: terminal, dimensions and file_name.

(%i1) /* screen plot */

(%i2) /* same plot in eps format -- crea maxima_out.eps */
      draw_file(terminal = eps) $


L’opzione dimension in draw_file non funziona; solo da me?

multiplot_mode (term)
This function enables Maxima to work in one-window multiplot mode with terminal term; accepted arguments for this function are screen, wxt, aquaterm, windows and none.

When multiplot mode is enabled, each call to draw sends a new plot to the same window, without erasing the previous ones. To disable the multiplot mode, write multiplot_mode(none).

When multiplot mode is enabled, global option terminal is blocked and you have to disable this working mode before changing to another terminal.

On Windows this feature requires Gnuplot 5.0 or newer. Note, that just plotting multiple expressions into the same plot doesn’t require multiplot: It can be done by just issuing multiple explicit or similar commands in a row.

(%i1) set_draw_defaults(
        xrange = [-1,1],
        yrange = [-1,1],
        grid = true,
        title = "Step by step plot" )$

(%i2) multiplot_mode(screen)$

(%i3) draw2d(color=blue, explicit(x^2,x,-1,1))$

(%i4) draw2d(color=red, explicit(x^3,x,-1,1))$

(%i5) draw2d(color=brown, explicit(x^4,x,-1,1))$

(%i6) multiplot_mode(none)$


set_draw_defaults (graphic option, ..., graphic object, ...)
Sets user graphics options. This function is useful for plotting a sequence of graphics with common graphics options. Calling this function without arguments removes user defaults.

(%i1) set_draw_defaults(
        xrange = [-10,10],
        yrange = [-2, 2],
        color = blue,
        grid = true)$

(%i2) /* plot with user defaults */

(%i3) set_draw_defaults()$

(%i4) /* plot with standard defaults */
