I try to draw together point (0,0,12) and the line  x=4t, y=-2t, z=2t on one graph 3D. Somebody has some pointers? Thank you 

A quick question, Can I add legends to 3D plots? 


I have studied most posts about plot quality, still confused.


When I export 2d graphs and import the to microsoft word, the quality is horrible. How can I presents my results in a reseanably good way? 

what command should I add to my code that the quality increase notoceably? 

Any suggestion about 3d plots? 

If I export as an eps file, how can I import that in microsoft word? I did, but I guess they are not compatibble. 


thank you 



I am trying to find the interpolation of a 3D function.

I have the vector x, the vector y and a matrix M at my disposition.
I know how to do the pointplot3d , but I can not find the function: f(x,y) 

any suggestion?


Thank you for help

Hi all


How can I make maple to write the values of each contour plot on the graph?

I have a 3d graph and want to have a contour plot in which each line have the associated value on it. I know I can use legends and input the values for each line by hand but I dont know those values. I just need maple to calculate the values and write them on the contour plot. 


Many thanks for helping me 


I am trying to plot 3d scattered data as a 2d scatterplot with the third dimension being displayed as colour or a line that separates the value of the two functions (for example, the higher value and lower value at that point). I attached the file. I have two functions and several parameters that are constant. Here, I want to use P[A] on the x-axis, and P[B] on the y-axis. The z dimension is the profit functions, either Profit[1] or Profit [2]. I want to show them in colors like the highest one is red and the lower one is green, or something similar.  P[A] and P[B] are probability values and P[B] is between 0 to 0.50 with 0.01 increments, while P[A] is always less than P[B]. The file is here:


P[A] := 0 ..P[B]-0.01

P[B] := 0 ..0.50

Anyone please help me to code this problem.Thanks,


Suppose that we have the following curve on a unit sphere




which is the implicit equation of a circle in "cylindrical coorinates" (r,phi,z) on the sphere.

How can I plot this curve without solving the implicit equation for r or z ?

Also, I don't want to make any parameterization.

In this paper we will demonstrate the importance of using simple to complex algorithms applied to complex systems in civil and mechanical engineering. In order to develop solutions that developers need to be involved in issues of advanced dynamic computer science. We show how is that with the Maple scientific program and through component-based algorithms can generate power then then be inserted into specific algorithms. Will form patterns with movements of rotation and revolution of their axes, in each case to model and analyze the curves thereof comprising. With these modelalos and curve analysis we can predict manufacturing costs, freight, inter alia estrcturas which they can be used with the correct use of Maplesoft.

hello guys,


i have a system of autonomous equations which i want to plot its 3D phase space with directional field,

i have some problem with it , and i dont know how to command for add some directional field for 3D phase space .


thank you guys


I would like to plot a 2D contour plot in the botton of a 3D plot of a spacial curve. I don't know how to do that in maple, but I found something similar done in Matlab for a 2Dcontour plot in the botton of a 3D surface.

Can someone help me?



Hi All,

I would like to create a 3D plot or surface plot and got stuck here and need your help.

I have a text file cretaed from C++ program. This file contains data in 8 columns. The first columns are X and Y values and rest of the columns are my calculated values based on X and Y. How can I visualize column numbers 3 to 8 based on X and Y values? Here is a sample:

0.00 0.00 0.378629 0.043703 0.259182 0.221199 0.181269 0.139292

I defined a line normally, but when I try plot this line in R3, appears a shape of a plane.

How can I plot only a line in a 3D window?

Line has coordinates x,y, e z.


Dear Maple users

I am delighted that Maple has builtin commands to plot so many polyhedrons in 3D. Here I am talking about the polyhedraplot command in the plots package. I was however disappointed that the socalled Truncated Icosahedron is not supported (not present in the supported list ...). My first question is:

1. Why isn't it supported?

It seems more relevant than many of the other polyhedrons which are supported. It is a member of the Archimedian Solids (see Besides it is the basic structure for soccer footballs. I found out that a TruncatedIcosahedron command is available in the geom3d package. This command is able to deliver data for the faces and more. With this command I succeded in writing a small program to actually plot this polyhedron in 3D:



    local i::integer,
    for i from 1 to 32 do
    end do;
end proc:



Since I am not really experienced in programming in Maple, here is my last question:

2. Can I simplify something in my code above?


Best wishes,



Hi all,


I'm trying to create the 3D animation which can show the idea of rotating 2D function plot, such as:



display(seq(surfdata([seq([seq([x, cos(2*p*Pi*(1/25))*x^(1/2), -sin(2*p*Pi*(1/25))*x^(1/2)], x = 0 .. 4, .1)], p = 0 .. t)]), t = 1 .. 25), insequence = true);

But it's too inconvenient because of too many seq functions in this commond, is there any easier way to plot this animatiton?

Thank you.
