type: int, default: 2, minimum: 2

Set the number of dimensions used for rendering.

The maximum value allowed is 10.

If both dimen and dim are set, the latter specifies the dimension used for layout, and the former for rendering. If only dimen is set, this is used for both layout and rendering dimensions.

Note that, at present, all aspects of rendering are 2D. This includes the shape and size of nodes, overlap removal, and edge routing. Thus, for dimen > 2, the only valid information is the pos attribute of the nodes.

All other coordinates will be 2D and, at best, will reflect a projection of a higher-dimensional point onto the plane.

Valid on:
  • Graphs
Note: neato, fdp, sfdp only
