    Hidden Line renders

    Hi all,

    Just sharing a simple technique I've been playing with, to produce hidden line renders, where the edges/lines on the far side of an object, or those obscured by another object are rendered differently, using the Ray Trace input as a switch.

    It's just a very simple example and setup, but there's scope to easily add more complexity if desired.

    A render, screen grabs, and the scene are attached. Hopefully this will be of interest to somebody...

    No worries.
    I rarely have anything I'm allowed to share, or worth sharing, so if feels good to be able to give a little back
