I'm following these settings: Can Blender be used to render 80s style wireframe graphics and animations?

...to Cycles-render wireframe volumes in 80s look. But I don't wanna see the diagonals of each face/square (I know faces have to be triangles in principle, due to the need for co-planar vertices). How to do this? using Blender 2.79b

    The cycles wireframe node can only work with the mesh data it has, which is always triangulated. Look at other ways to render wireframe. – sambler Sep 15 at 6:36

Tray this Edit Mode

  • select all

go to this link there I put the answer a couple of days ago, it is called wire material LINK: How to make visible grid lines in the mesh?

Example Ware-Frame

  • @lamanoaqui maybe this helps is the simple method, Applied in Blender Render (internal) and Game Engine, it must work in cycles in a very similar way. with the exception that I do not know how to do well with nodes but I will try and complement the answer later – Nazgûl Sep 14 at 23:02
