When I run:

Plot3D[Sin[x + y^2], {x, -3, 3}, {y, -2, 2}]

I get no axes showing on my plot, i.e. enter image description here

However when saving the plot as a PDF the axes are shown.

Does anyone have anyone idea on how to fix this? I would like to be able to see the axis in Mathematica notebook and the PDF file. I am using a clean install of Mathematica 11.3 on Arch Linux.

Thanks!

  • $\begingroup$ Welcome to Mathematica.SW! What is the desired outcome? Would you like to have axis in the notebook or you would not like to have axis in the PDF? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Hi! Sorry for the amibguity, I would like to have the axis in the notebook be visible, as well as the PDF file (edited my question for clarity). $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ You may have changed an option setting for Plot3D. Start with a fresh kernel to reset all of the options to their default. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @MichaelE2 I played around with rendering options and it seems to be that OpenGL was the problem. Switching to Mesa seemed to fix it. Thanks all for the help! $\endgroup$

For those that run into this problem, I was having problems with OpenGL rendering. Instead of running mathematica in the shell, running mathematica -mesa seemed to fix the problem.

I get the axes in v. 11.3.0.0.

Nevertheless, you might add Boxed->True

  • $\begingroup$ I have added Boxed -> True but this didn't do anything. Thanks anyway. $\endgroup$
