Sorry if this is a daft question but in all the tutorials I've watched it just shows how to do a wireframe for one object not an entire scene and I don't really fancy having to select every single object and apply the wireframe mod to it. I know about the wireframe material that I could apply to the scene but that displays it in triangles and I want it in Quads.

Here how would I do this task.

  1. Get 2.8x version
  2. Set up overlays like this:

enter image description here

  1. When setup matcap and cavity as you want:

enter image description here

enter image description here

  1. If the result is not bad, click View -> Viewport render.
  2. If you want wireframe on top of Cycles (or outer) Render Setup viewport like this:

enter image description here

enter image description here

  1. In color management set View transform to default

enter image description here

  1. When click View -> Viewport render and compose resulted image over render using multiply.

Quick script nothing fancy just uncomment set or removed at bottom and run for 2.79. Note that removing the wireframe modifier will not discriminate if there were some you wanted to leave in place.

import bpy

objects = bpy.context.scene.objects


def set_wired():
    for ob in objects:
        if ob.type == 'MESH':
            objects.active = ob
            bpy.ops.object.modifier_add(type='WIREFRAME')


def rem_wired():
    for ob in objects:
        if ob.type == 'MESH':
            objects.active = ob
            try:
                bpy.ops.object.modifier_remove(modifier="Wireframe")
            except:
                print('no wireframe modifier on %s' % ob.name)

set_wired()
#rem_wired()

I could be wrong, but I don't think there is a way to do that normally in Blender, but if you program Python (unless someone might be willing to whip up a quick script for you), I think you should be able to modify this script to do exactly what you're looking for...

Once you have your wireframe material created just set in in the Materials box

enter image description here

This is how I created all the clay/wire videos here https://youtu.be/Q6FS9sRJcDQ?t=48

and the Python if you need to automate it.

bpy.context.scene.render.layers["RenderLayer"].material_override = bpy.data.materials["MYMATERIALNAME"]
