export from a plot to a geometric data file
exportplot(fname, p, opts)
path of the file
a PLOT or PLOT3D structure
(optional) the format option as described below
encoding : one of text or binary
Specifies whether the output should be encoded using a text or binary variant of the format. This option is only effective for the PLY and STL output formats. The default is binary.
format : string
Specifies the output format. It must correspond to one of the listed supported formats. If unspecified, then the format is inferred from the file extension of fname.
The exportplot command retrieves geometric data from a plot structure and exports it to a file in the specified data format.
The command returns a number showing the count of bytes written to disk during the export.
The exportplot command supports all 3-D plot structures with the exception of ISOSURFACE.
It is also possible to export plot data to a file in an external graphics format using the graphical export tools in the context-sensitive menu.
Supported Export Formats
Formats supported by exportplot include the following:
Raster Graphics formats: GIF, JPEG, TIFF
Vector Graphics formats: AMF, BYU, DXF, COLLADA, JVX, OBJ, OFF, PLY, POV, STL, VTK, WMF
stl ≔ FileTools:-JoinPath⁡FileTools:-TemporaryDirectory⁡,seashell.stl
p ≔ plot3d⁡−1.2x⁢sin⁡y,x=−1..2⁢Pi,y=0..Pi,coords=spherical:
