Dear Damien Thiriet,

If you change ‘vardef’ to ‘def’, you will get the figure.
There is a difference between ‘vardef’ and ‘def’.
AFAIK, vardef returns the value of the last statement in the macro.
Please see  the examples in Metafun manual from page 32 ~ .
I hope that you find your answer there.

I am sorry that I am not good enough to explain the variables.

Best regards,
