I have some difficulties with exporting a 3d plot from Maple in a pdf format without loosing the whole settings. As a simple example consider the following.
plot3d(sin(x)*10^y, x = -4 .. 4, y = -2 .. 2, view = [-4 .. 4, -2 .. 2, 0 .. 2], labelfont = ["TimesNewRoman", 26], labels = [x, Typesetting:-Typeset(log(y)), typeset()])
I tried two approaches, each has a drawback.
1- Right clicking on the figure, choosing `Export`, then `PDF`. Unfortunately, Maple changes the font size of labels!
2- Right clicking on the figure, choosing `Export`, then `Encapsulated Postcript`. Then I open the resulted `eps` file in GSview. Convert it to pdf. The result is a large-size pdf file which is heavy to render. Even when it gets rendered, scrolling up and down (for example in Adobe reader) is not good, because it seems the picture is going to get rendered again!
So how should one export a 3d plot from Maple in a pdf format, But not loosing the settings of the plot such as the font size of the labels and also not ending up with a heavy file?
