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
format : string corresponding to one of the supported export formats; if unspecified, 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.
It is also possible to export plot structures to an external graphics format, using the graphical export tools in the context-sensitive menu.
Export supports all 3-D plot structures except ISOSURFACE.
Supported Export Formats
Formats supported by exportplot include the following:
Raster Graphics formats: GIF, JPEG, TIFF
Vector Graphics formats: 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:
The plottools[exportplot] command was introduced in Maple 18.
