# How to combine two Affine2D transformations in matplotlib

If you have two `Affine2D`

transformations, you can combine them by using the `+`

operator. Internally, this will multiply the two transformation matrices, which is equivalent to applying the two transformations in sequence:

```
# Example: Combine transform1 with transform2
combined_transform = transform1 + transform2
```

### Full example

```
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
from matplotlib.transforms import Affine2D
# Create two transformations
transform1 = Affine2D().rotate_deg(45)
transform2 = Affine2D().scale(2)
# Combine the two transformations
combined_transform = transform1 + transform2
```
