If when plotting in Maple you receive an empty plot with no axis or the message
it is likely that your graphics driver needs to be updated. You can update your display driver from Device Manager in Windows or from the vendors website.
Hardware Acceleration and Plot Anti-Aliasing
If updating your graphics driver doesn't solve the problem then it's possible that by toggling the anti-aliasing and hardware acceleration settings will allow you to view your plot.
On Linux you may need to disable hardware-accelerated OpenGL routines. To do this open the maple file located in
in a text editor. Please note that the maple file doesn't have an extension.
On or around line 70 add
and save the file.
Very Large or Very Small Values
If your plot (or the function used to calculate the plot) contains any very large or very small values then you may need to disable hardware floats for Maple to display the plot. You can disable hardware floats using either:
Digits := 16:
UseHardwareFloats := false:
An example of a function that would need this would be:
f := x -> 10^(2000 + x)*0.5*10^(-2000):
Then your plot likely contains complex values. You can try plotting just the real part of the plot by using Re(). More suggestions on this error are available from the error message link.
If you receive an error similar to:
then it is possible that you either have an undefined variable in your plot or are attempting to plot a 3D plot in 2D.
If none of the above solve the issue please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with a copy of the worksheet that causes the empty plot.
