Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

How to render 3D grid lines?

alt text

I want to render something that looks like this.

Would this be a material/texture? Or rendering lines with code? This would be a pretty big texture, I think I'd rather render lines with blueprints if possible.

If I were to add transparent vertical lines too, what method would I use for that?

hi farzher, i made a small project with a grid. it contains no texture, but a ground plane with 2 parametrized material instances. the bigger line in the middle is not solved very elegantly. i.e. it is polygon segments with an opaque material on it. the smaller lines are procedural lines that are made with two GenerateBand material functions that come with the mat editor. i also add the 6.1 project hope you get the idea and can cusomize your grid yourself grid project alt text

I didn't realize you could do so much with materials. that's pretty interesting
