As stated, contourplot3d is not displaying contours. Even in the Maple Help examples the contours are not displayed in the help screen.

In this example:

contourplot3d(-5*x/(x^2+y^2+1), x = -3 .. 3, y = -3 .. 3, filledregions = true);

which is directly from Maple Help, the surface is plotted (with boxed axes), but no contours appear.

When I try

contourplot3d(-5*x/(x^2+y^2+1), x = -3 .. 3, y = -3 .. 3);

the plot shows nothing except boxed axes.

I've also tried

plot3d(-5*x/(x^2+y^2+1), x = -3 .. 3, y = -3 .. 3, contours=6);

and the surface shows but without countours. Furthermore, the Maple scripts that worked previously in earlier versions (showing contours via plot3d) now do not show contours in Maple 18. This occurs on both Win 7 and Win 8 laptops.



Ok guys, so i have a bunch of datapoints in 3d (x,y,z)

I'm trying to calculate an equation using maple that will express z as a function of x and y.

I've been browesing around for like 2 hours now with no hope. Help?


Hello everyone,


how exactly do i 3-d plot some data that i have to back-transform first. in 2-d it is so easy. why isnt it in 3d? all i end up with is an all black diagram

please see the file attached

Grateful for some hints




I have a file with arbitrary points which I want to connect with a surface. I have seen similar problems on this site but I can't fix my problem with the answers that are given, mainly because my points are just plain vectors. Can anybody help me? 
These are my points/vectors:

v1 := `<,>`(15, 6, 14.89);
v2 := `<,>`(15, 8, 14.72);
v3 := `<,>`(15, 10, 14.79);
v4 := `<,>`(15, 12, 14.95);
v5 := `<,>`(15, 14, 15.17);
v6 := `<,>`(15, 16, 15.43);
w1 := `<,>`(15/2, 4, 9.78);
w2 := `<,>`(15/2, 6, 9.95);
w3 := `<,>`(15/2, 8, 9.85); 
x1 := `<,>`(15*(1/3), 4, 8.71);
x2 := `<,>`(15*(1/3), 6, 8.44);
y1 := `<,>`(15/4, 4, 8.31); 

I can only plot the different points with 

pointplot3d({v1, v2, v3, v4, v5, v6, w1, w2, w3, x1, x2, y1}, scaling = CONSTRAINED, symbolsize = 20, color = red, axes = normal, labels = ["L/h", "n", "kg/m"]);

I hope someone can help me!

So if you are given a 3x3 matrix i was just wondering how to use plot3d and plot the 3 column vectors given by it?  Thanks.

I have just begun thinking of trying to make some mathematically defined objects using a 3d printer. I would be happy to hear from anyone who has done this using Maple to prepare input. Pointers for a novice in 3d printing would be appreciated.  I have access to a MakerBot Replicator 2. But the people who have it have only used it to scan objects and make 3d copies of them. 


Hi, guys and happy eastern to all! :)

I have a realy big problem. I have to do beziercurves in 3d plots.

I can´t plot it in 3d, something wrong with the plot (complex). Can anybody pls help me?! It´s very important to me, thanks! :)

In geom3d. I want to find the vertices A(x1,y1,z1), B(x2,y2,z2), where x1, y1, z1, x2, y2, z2 are integer numbers so that the triangle OAB  (O is origin) and perimeter and area are integer numbers. I tried

> resrart:



for x1 from -N to N do

for y1 from x1 to N do

for z1 from y1 to N do

for x2 from -N to N do

for y2 from -N to N do

for z2 from -N to N do

a:=sqrt(x1^2+y1^2+z1^2):b:=sqrt(x2^2+y2^2+z2^2):c:=sqrt((x2-x1)^2 + (y2-y1)^2 + (z2-z1)^2):



if type(2*p, integer) and type(S, posint)

then L:=[op(L), [[0, 0, 0], [x1, y1, z1], [x2, y2, z2]]]: fi:

But my computer runs too long. I can not receive the result. How to get the answer?

If I the length of the side are 6, 25, 29. I tried 

DirectSearch:-SolveEquations([(x2-x1)^2+(y2-y1)^2+(z2-z1)^2 = 6^2, (x3-x2)^2+(y3-y2)^2+(z3-z2)^2 = 25^2,  (x3-x1)^2+(y3-y1)^2+(z3-z1)^2 = 29^2], {abs(x1) <= 30, abs(x2) <= 20, abs(x3) <= 20, abs(y1) <= 20, abs(y2) <= 20, abs(y3) <= 20, abs(z1) <= 20,abs(z2) <= 20, abs(z3) <= 20}, assume = integer, AllSolutions, solutions = 1);



In geometry 3D, I have four vertices A(x1,y1,z1), B(x2,y2,z2), C(x3,y3,z3) and D(x4,y4,z4) of a tetrahedron. How to check a point P(x0,y0,z0) inside, outside or lie on  tetrahedron ABCD?


I'm trying to fit a spacecurve onto some points I have. 

I know, I can use Spline to do this in 2D, but it doesn't work in 3D.

What command(s) can I use to fit a spacecurve onto my points? 

Thanks in advance

So i got rhis
with(plots); low := 1015; high := 1019; j := 0; for i from low to high do proc (X) options operator, arrow; X(t) end proc; proc (Y) options operator, arrow; Y(t) end proc; ode := diff(X(t), t) = evalf(subs(x = X(t), y = Y(t), subs(vvx = VX[i], vvx))), diff(Y(t), t) = evalf(subs(x = X(t), y = Y(t), subs(vvy = VY[i], vvy))); ics := X(0) = Cordx[i+1], Y(0) = Cordy[i+1]; j := j+1; plott[j] := odeplot(ds, [X(t), Y(t)], t = 0 .. 100, numpoints = 1000) end do; display(plott, jj)


I have a problem. I want to make plot 3d for pressure drop in diffuser by posuille formula,

plot3d(∫_0^l▒〖(128∙1.2∙〖10〗^(-3)∙〖10〗^(-14))/(π∙〖(d+2∙x∙tan⁡〖θ)〗〗^4 )  dx,d=0.1∙〖10〗^(-6)..1.5∙〖10〗^(-6),l=5∙〖10〗^(-6)..50∙〖10〗^(-6),axes=box,font=[TIMES,ROMAN,13])〗

but with increasing of "l"(length of channel) graph shows wrong pressure drop. Normally with i increasing of "L" we should have...


do 3D-OpenGL-Graphics in Maple 16/17 on Linux-x86_64 (openSUSE 12.2/12.3)  work with Intel HD 3000/4000 Graphics?


Thank you very much.

Dear Maple users

I know how to plot surfaces in 3D. However now I have a special task: I want to plot a piece of a solid region in 3D, more precisely a transverse or logitudinal wave. I wonder if there is an easy way to do this in Maple? Any hint will be appreciated!





Notice it doesn't completely go down to the x-axis. 

It can be partially fixed with this


but due to bugs in earlier versions of maple I can only achieve this
