How To Render Edge Lines (wireframe) Only

Post by Fletch » Thu Mar 10, 2011 7:53 pm

Here is a great little technique tip that comes from forum member pdwyer here.

How to render a mesh only. How to render a wireframe only. How to render SketchUp Edge Lines only.

Just create your material and put it everywhere in the scene you want a mesh look. the edge line thickness can be controlled.
