Showing Outline Only of Facetted Object

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if it's possible to show only just the outline of a facetted object in "Shaded Full" display option. See attached screenshot of a structure with a facetted skin. It's an imported file from a client and there are no parametric(smooth) options to import.

I have a workaround for this by exporting a full shaded image with 'Override Edge Display' turned off then a hidden line image of the same view and layering them in photoshop but it'd be more efficient to not have to have this extra step. See attached second image.


Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

Hidden line should not show the facets, unless they are on edge of the object.

where you want to see the edge, select all the faces you want as a group, then un-stitch them as in the final image shown here.

Hi Chris,

Thanks for the response. Yeah hidden line doesn't show the facets in this model as illustrated by the second image which is a hidden line image layered over a full shaded image with edge display turned off.

What I'm trying to achieve is a full shaded image with an outline but no facets showing.

Any ideas?
