Workbench Plot.svg


The Plot Workbench allows the user to edit and save output plots created from other workbenches and tools.

With the Plot workbench you can edit the working area, the axes, labels, titles, line styles, and other elements of plots.

The Plot workbench is an abstraction of the matplotlib Python library conveniently adapted for FreeCAD. To use the Plot functions, the version of matplotlib installed in your system should match the Python version that FreeCAD uses, that is, if FreeCAD uses Python 2.7, you should have matplotlib for the same version.

==Scripting== Since Plot module is a layer over matplotlib, you are free to use all matplotlib commands over plot instances. See scripting examples section to see examples.
