You maylook at FullForm of the plot produced, and you'll find all the information about the plot. In particular, you may extract thereof the whole set of points which Mathematica has joined with succesive line segments to produce the plot. This set you can save for future use. Take the following example (outputs ommitted): In[3]:= p = Plot[Sin[x], {x, 0, 2 Pi}] In[4]:= FullForm[p] Here you extract only the points you need: In[5]:= points= Cases[p, List[x_, y_] -> {x, y}, Infinity] Then you may save "points" for further use. Save them using >>, i.e. points>>pointsforplotp and retrieve them with <<pointsforplotp Tomas Garza Mexico City "Martin Richter" <mr.fi at cbs.dk wrote: > I'm making some plots, for which is takes Matematica a long time to plot. > After making some plots I export them to EPS and is using Show to include > different figures in one plot.
