This problem is probably due to the MathematicaMono font which is introduced in v10. Defining the problem: Some fonts ("[","_","]","=", etc.) are rendered badly with strange thinning in v10 in some notebook magnifications. This is obvious when you compare the renderings from v10 with those from v9. Analyzing the problem: I found that all of these ...

The relevant line from this SO post: fontlist = FE`Evaluate[FEPrivate`GetPopupList["MenuListFonts"]]; Update: The content of the "MenuListFonts" list is system-dependent. In Windows Vista, I get a list that contains only FontFamily: Panel@Row[fontlist[[;; 60]] /. Rule[x_, y_] :> Style[ToString@x, 14, FontFamily -> y], " \[FilledSquare] "] On ...

Mathematica is not really a reference in digital terrain models, and, there are very powerful software packages to deal with geographical information. But... where would be the fun... If the information in the files includes a digital terrain model (DTM), with the surface of the terrain defined by triangular faces (regular or not), then you can easily ...

I analyzed which fonts are loaded when starting Mma v10 compared to v9. The problem could be tracked down to the loading of the fonts in the Folder $InstallationDirectory\SystemFiles\Fonts\TrueType If you open Mathematica-Bold.ttf or MathematicaMono-Bold.ttf, you will see how ugly these are. To prevent loading these fonts one should make a backup copy of ...

Although exporting x3d format maintains the light sources and exports the mesh, it isn't perfect when used with Blender (the only 3D editor I tried). However, since it's the best solution I have, I wrote some brief instructions for that procedure. It's important to note that I used Blender version 2.60 and Mathematica 9. Since the instructions are almost ...

Here is my solution using RevolutionPlot3D to draw the disk layers, it's faster; First convert the image to data rows: imgd = Map[First[#] &, ImageData[ColorConvert[img, "Grayscale"]], {2}]; rows = Reverse /@ Transpose[imgd]; Define the function to draw the disk slices: ClearAll[disk] disk[row_List, nPoints_] := Module[{ lr = Length[row]}, ...

Im sorry i have a bit limited time at the moment so the answer will need to be revisited later. While its true that the hardware of your computer could do this, and it could be included in by wolfram making shadows is usually considered a next step in rendering. I am not dwelling on why this doesn't work, as you can use any of the existing free raytracers ...

Based on experimentation with Mathematica 8.04 on Windows 7 64-bit: I don't think it's possible to do anything in the kernel. When you rasterize a Graphics expression it is processed by System`ConvertersDump`ConvertGraphicToRasterDataPacket which assembles an ExportPacket and sends it to the front end. The front end returns a System`ConvertersDump`Bitmap ...

Problem 1 should be a distribution specific bug. I cannot reproduce this problem on Archlinux. I can reproduce problem 2. I think primusrun is still experimental. You may report a bug to them (but the developers may not have Mathemataica though).

Here you can find some software to convert Mathematica graphics for input into POVray (untested and rather old, though) http://www.mathconsult.ch/showroom/pubs/MathProg/htmls/2-11.htm Edit Maeder's book and files aren't available for online downloading (you've to purchase the book) Edit Or perhaps you can find them at the link provided in the commen Edit ...

After talking with Wolfram tech support, it seems problem 1 is really just this issue resolved by running Mathematica by the mathematica -mesa command. Problem 2 is unresolved. I suppose I should keep this question open, though I don't know if a fix will come soon.

You must adjust the Antialiasing Quality to solve that issue. Go to menu Edit -> Preferences -> Appearance -> Graphics.. then adjust it.. That worked for me. I have Ubuntu 14.04 and Mathematica V9. Other solution is open a terminal and run: mathematica -mesa when opening.

I have the same memory issue as you do. Try Compress/Uncompress with Animate: exampleFrames = Table[DensityPlot[ Evaluate[Exp[-((x - Cos[t])^2 + (y - Sin[t])^2)/.025]], {x, -1.5, 1.5}, {y, -1.5, 1.5}, ColorFunction -> GrayLevel, PlotRange -> All, PlotPoints -> 30, Frame -> None, PlotRangePadding -> None], {t, Pi/50, 2 Pi, ...
