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 can I make a solid wireframe material

I've found the wireframe toggle on the materials. But when I toggle this the material is see-through except the wireframe. I would like the background solid as well (just a different color or material). I've looked into layered materials but when making attribute values I cannot find the wireframe toggle anymore. Dumping this into a material with wireframe toggle activated just turns the plugged in material translucent as well (except where the wireframe is). Whats the trick for this?

Except for doing some really deep hlsl coding (I don't think the required functionality for this would be in the material editor but i could be wrong) the best I know of is to have a UV map with non-overlapping UVs and export a texture mask of them for use in an engine material. This is custom per mesh per material.

For simpley object like Box, you can use this shader tron-like glowing effect.

what you can do is create a new uv channel, and use a per face mapping. and use a simple black box with a white stroke as color. it should do the trick
