There are some options available through the File > Save Selection As > EPS menu that are not available through Export in Mathematica 6.0 (this has been address in the next version of Mathematica). Please take a look at the options described in this post: http://groups.google.com/group/comp.soft-sys.math.mathematica/msg/6b0387ea4f8732d4 from this newgroup thread: version 6 Plot3D exporting results in HUGE files http://groups.google.com/group/comp.soft-sys.math.mathematica/browse_thread/thread/a669fd00915cbbf5/6b0387ea4f8732d4?# Try them out and see if they help. Also, please note that PlotPoints->200 in V6 is not the same as PlotPoints->200 in V5.X due to automatic adaptive sampling (http://www.wolfram.com/products/mathematica/newin6/content/HighImpactAdaptiveVisualization/). It might be the case that you can decrease the number of points and still get satisfying graphics. Thanks, Igor C.
