    Maple Graphics

    Does anyone know how I can shade an area between two curves in a 2-D maple plot? The shading commands that I can find will only work with 3-D graphics.
    Thanks.

    There isn't a built-in feature to do such things with Maple. However, on the Maple website, there is a [Maple] application which shades the region between two curves. You can find the documentation and application here: Shading the region between two graphs - Application Center

    I hope this helps...

    Maple plotting guide>plot options>drawing tools

    The drawing fill option should allow you to fill regions. If you'd like a better exlaination, let me know.

    That's great. That is just what I'm looking for. I'm having some trouble getting it to work. When I downloaded it they warned me that it might have problems as it is pretty old, but I'm confident that with a little fussing I can get it figured out. Thanks a bunch.

    I did not see that was there. Thanks. I couldn't get it to fill a pre-plotted region though. It would only fill an object created from the drawing menu. I was leaning more towards something command based, like Chris L T521 suggested, but if I could get the fill to work that might be a pretty good option.

    Yeah, I guess you're right. I assumed that it would work. Hmmm.... It can't be possible that maple's plotting could be limited in something like this ?!

    I mean, the stupid little drawing application that comes with every computer can fill regions! Maple is light years ahead of that.

    That was my thought exactly. I just couldn't believe that it couldn't do something so seemingly simple. Which is why after reading through as much of the plotting guide as I could bare, I decided to call for help...

    So I haven't been able to get the shading to work. I thought that I read somewhere that the shadein procedure is no longer in the plottools package. So I'm wondering if anyone else has gotten it work, as it could be that I'm just messing it up somehow.

    On a somewhat positive note I did make some headway in making use of the filled procedure. I can get it to shade, but only if the area in question is set nicely about the x-axis (see image). Even then it's still kind of a pain. I guess that's where the other procedure would come in handy.

    How did you upload this maple doc? I've tried and can't do it.

    The one from the application center? After you open the linked page, just click on download maple document. It will warn you that it may be out of date, but at the bottom of the warning box there is another place to click that says download file. From there just save it and open it in maple.

    I guess my question was, Can I upload any of my own personal maple docs that I create?


    Or did you answer that? I'm confused.

    Sorry about the misunderstanding, I guess that I was confused. Were you referring to the plot that I posted?

    It's actually not the maple doc itself, it's just a gif of the plot. You can create and export gifs (and other file types) by command, but the way that I do it is just to right-click on the plot image, go to plot, then export, then pick the file type that you want, and save it wherever you so choose.

    Though you can export whole maple docs as html files (among a few other things) from the file drop-down menu, by way of export as.
