# How to save the image generated by Plot3D as svg? [duplicate]

pic11 = Plot3D[Sin[x + y^2], {x, -3, 3}, {y, -2, 2}];Export["ff.svg", pic11]


The generated svg diagram is very vague, why is this? How to convert the map generated by Plot3D into svg format?

• 3D objects are Rasterized before being converted into SVG, which is why you get the output that you do. Most 2D plots aren't rasterised, so if you do pic11 = Plot[Sin[x], {x, -3, 3}]; Export["ff.svg", pic11] it's a nice scaleable vector image. – Carl Lange Jul 7 '18 at 11:31
