Plotting with multicolor
edited April 2013
I will like to plot with 2 or 3 different colors. Is there a way to plot in layers?
Yes, absolutely. Here's a detailed tutorial, showing how to plot with two layers, to get two colors:
thanks. i will try it.
Is there a reason when I try to plot a circular shapes sometimes instead of printing a circle is turns it to a oval-like shape?
Not exactly sure if this is what you are talking about, but if you plot a circle on a spherical object (like a golf ball) it will come out circular, whereas if you plot the exact same shape on an egg, it will come out stretched, because of, well, geometry. Usually, you correct for this by stretching the initial figure by about 150% horizontally.
