I would like to set the front-most plot's DefaultColor to "Transparent", so I could see its grid lines, but see the other plot behind it. I haven't seen any way to do this. Is it possible? p.s. Even better would be to be able to set it to a translucent color. ------------------------------------------ A demonstration of how to simulate transparent colored graphics is given at http://support.wolfram.com/Graphics/ThreeD/Transparency.html Also the following will make a graphics using a transparent wire mesh. gr1=Plot3D[Sin[x y],{x,0,Pi},{y,0,Pi}, HiddenSurface->False]; However, I can't get the transparent wire mesh to work when I try to show the graph above and another graphic made with Plot3D. Any ideas on how to get that working? -------------------------- Regards, Ted Ersek For Mathematica tips, tricks see http://www.dot.net.au/~elisha/ersek/Tricks.html
