Maple Maple 13: Increase resolution of 3D shapes

  1. Jan 30, 2010 #1
    Hey all,

    I'm sure this is simple, but I can't seem to find the answer in the Maple help section.
    When drawing 3D shapes, I want to be able to up the number of dots used to constitute the image, thus increase the resolution of the object.

    My spheres are showing up a bit boxy.


    What "option" command do I need to add at the end of the line to increase the resolution?

    Just found it.

    "numpoints" is what I was looking for.

    Example application:
    implicitplot3d(x^2+y^2+z^2=1,x=-1..1,y=-1..1,z=-1..1,axes=normal, numpoints=20000):
