Workbench Plot.svg

The FreeCAD Plot Workbench Icon


The Workbench Plot.svg Plot Workbench allows the user to edit and save output plots created from other workbenches and tools.

With the Plot workbench you can edit the working area, the axes, labels, titles, line styles, and other elements of plots.

The Plot workbench is an abstraction of the matplotlib Python library conveniently adapted for FreeCAD. To use the Plot functions, the version of matplotlib installed in your system should match the Python version that FreeCAD uses, that is, if FreeCAD uses Python 2.7, you should have matplotlib for the same version.


  • Plot Save.svg Save plot: Saves the plot in several formats. You can select the output size and resolution too.
  • Plot Axes.svg Axes: Add, remove or edit plot axes.
  • Plot Series.svg Series: Edit series title and styling.
  • Plot Grid.svg Grid: Show/hide grid.
  • Plot Legend.svg Legend: Show/hide legend.
  • Plot Labels.svg Labels: Edit labels.
  • Plot Positions.svg Positions: Set elements positions.


Since the Plot Workbench is a layer on top of matplotlib, you are free to use any function from this library on plot instances. See scripting examples for examples.
