[Mesa-users] Roche lobe plot using mesa-r8845

the plot is a two-dimensional representation of the gravitational potential 
for the two-body (or restricted 3-body) problem. colors represent the 
equipotentials and the five lagrange points are readily visible.

mesa is a 1d toolkit for stellar evolution. 
it cannot generate the data needed to make this kind of plot. 

you will need to find another tool to produce such a plot,
or learn how to calculate the potential yourself and have
a graphing program like gnuplot plot the data,
