Passing sharex=True when creating the subplots will automatically turn off all x ticks and labels except those on the bottom axis. In this example the plots share a common x axis but you can follow the same logic to supply a common y axis. .. image:: /gallery/subplots_axes_and_figures/images/sphx_glr_ganged_plots_001.png :class: sphx-glr-single-img .. code-block:: default import matplotlib.pyplot as plt import numpy as np t = np.arange(0.0, 2.0, 0.01) s1 = np.sin(2 * np.pi * t) s2 = np.exp(-t) s3 = s1 * s2 fig, axs = plt.subplots(3, 1, sharex=True) # Remove horizontal space between axes fig.subplots_adjust(hspace=0) # Plot each graph, and manually set the y tick values axs[0].plot(t, s1) axs[0].set_yticks(np.arange(-0.9, 1.0, 0.4)) axs[0].set_ylim(-1, 1) axs[1].plot(t, s2) axs[1].set_yticks(np.arange(0.1, 1.0, 0.2)) axs[1].set_ylim(0, 1) axs[2].plot(t, s3) axs[2].set_yticks(np.arange(-0.9, 1.0, 0.4)) axs[2].set_ylim(-1, 1) plt.show() .. _sphx_glr_download_gallery_subplots_axes_and_figures_ganged_plots.py: .. only :: html .. container:: sphx-glr-footer :class: sphx-glr-footer-example .. container:: sphx-glr-download :download:`Download Python source code: ganged_plots.py ` .. container:: sphx-glr-download :download:`Download Jupyter notebook: ganged_plots.ipynb ` .. only:: html .. rst-class:: sphx-glr-signature Keywords: matplotlib code example, codex, python plot, pyplot `Gallery generated by Sphinx-Gallery `_
