A simple example: Show[Graphics[{Circle[{2,3},4],Line[{{0,0},{3,1}}],Point[{2,2}]}]] Generally, put the graphics primitives in a list (and use the correct brackets: in contrast to your example for Circle above), then enclose place this list in Graphics as an argument, then display the result using Show. Of course there is much more, involving using options and more sophisticated graphics directives. This example was for simple 2-D graphics, for 3-D graphics you need to use Graphics3D, SurfaceGraphics,... The basic reference for all of thei is Tom Wickham-Jones's book "Mathematica Graphics", but you can get up to speed with The Mathematica Book as well as others. --David -- ---------------------------------------- Scientific Arts: Creative Services and Consultation for the Applied and Pure Sciences http://www.scientificarts.com David Reiss Email: dreiss at !SPAMscientificarts.com ---------------------------------------- Remove the !SPAM to send email
