I am trying to export the below plot

plot = Plot3D[Sin[x] Cos[y], {x, 0, 2 π}, {y, 0, 2 π}]


Export["plot.png", plot, "PNG"]

enter image description here

but my problem is related to the vertical and horizontal lines around the shape. How can I export the plot in png format or any format that can be inserted by Microsoft Word (for example not PDF or EPS because they can not be inserted by Word) and in a good resolution (for example png is better jpeg) but not with an unwanted vertical and horizontal lines

  • $\begingroup$ I do not experience this on v10.4 under Windows 10. What version of Mathematica/OS are you using? Also, on what program did you open the image to take the screenshot you posted here? Did you try opening it with some other application? $\endgroup$ – glS Sep 5 '16 at 18:52
  • $\begingroup$ I am using Math v 10.3, win 7. 64. I just opened it by paint for drawing some arrows for clarifying. I inserted the same picture in Word but the lines were accompanied. $\endgroup$ – Unbelievable Sep 5 '16 at 18:57
  • $\begingroup$ so just to be clear, if you drag and drop tha produced .png file into the mathematica notebook, do you still see the lines in the figure produced in the notebook? $\endgroup$ – glS Sep 5 '16 at 18:58
  • $\begingroup$ Yes the lines are sticky to the plot. I dragged and dropped to a notebook but they are still appeared $\endgroup$ – Unbelievable Sep 5 '16 at 19:07
  • $\begingroup$ I'm not reproducing this behaviour, but it rings a bell. I'm not sure, but try doing something with ImagePadding or some similar options. $\endgroup$ – corey979 Sep 5 '16 at 19:10
