I want to achieve this cool translucent see-through effect with a graph wireframe background in my 3D objects as shown in the images below. How do I do this?

I have regular low poly objects with materials. This effect comes in really handy when you want to explain the architecture of an opaque object.

So, for an object I need to have both the effects. The regular opaque material design look & the translucent see through look;

I am using Blender 2.8

The screenshots are from a youtube channel called the Real Engineering

Try a Translucent Shader any shader, lol, with the blend mode (if you're using Eevee) set to additive. The Principled shader works well : ) GL OP
