How to export Geogebra 3D in vector format (e.g. SVG, PDF)?

In https://www.geogebra.org/3d, my options are:


  • Export image.

Result: Image successfully saved on my computer as PNG file.

  • Download as SVG.


Result: A zero-byte SVG file is saved to my computer. When I try to open it, it says, "Failed to load the requested file."


  • Download as PDF.

Result: Nothing happens.


So, question: How to export Geogebra 3D in vector format (e.g. SVG, PDF)?

Have you tried ExportImage command?

I just tried entering the following into the Input line and pressing Enter, nothing happened:


ExportImage("type","pdf","filename","test.pdf")

Vector formats don't really suit 3D (eg hidden object removal / clipping)


You can try Download As -> Collada (html) here:

https://beta.geogebra.org/3d


which then has an Export SVG button - just for fun though

What does that do? I tried that and opened the html file and all I get is a page that is blank except for two buttons that don't do anything:

By the way, how on earth is this question marked "Answered"? So far the only "answers" I've gotten are:


  • "Have you tried ExportImage command?"
  • "You can try Download As -> Collada (html) here: https://beta.geogebra.org/3d, which then has an Export SVG button - just for fun though".


Neither of which is an answer.

This is still not answered. I have the same question.

For the 3D Graphics View, only PNG is supported. In GeoGebra Classic 5 you can try this to get a high-resolution output ExportImage("filename", "c:\Users\<username>\AppData\image.png", "view", -1, "width", 2000). Change <username> to your Windows username

Is it possible to pop up message "SVG/PDF format is not supported!" and "Custom size/scale/DPI is not supported!" or "Features are not implemented yet!". I spent more than an hour looking for a solution and it was just a waste of time. I've tried linux, windows, Geogebra 5, Geogebra 6, ... long story ...


In the version 5 the ExportImage works, but there is another problem/bug. I can't properly open saved file (btw correctly working) - "Opening file failed - processing of command IntersectPath(x=2, sqrt(x^2+y^2))" - "eq1: undefined"


It is terrible to create high-resolution drawings of 3D objects (with axes) that we need in our new math book. All we need is nice looking pictures. I think Geogebra can do it well, but some minor problems make it really harder to work.
