The cylinder has raytrace transparency on and it does show the texture of the globe through it but not the squares. How come the grid doesn't show through the cylinder?

  • $\begingroup$ I'm using Blender Render. The wireframe is made by creating cubes and changing the material to wire. I'm rendering it with the default settings. $\endgroup$ – John Pham Jun 30 '16 at 17:42

I am guessing that rendering wireframes inside other materials or through effects like refraction is not supported since the wireframe is itself sort of a "2D-like effect.

Try using a Wireframe modifier in your cubes instead, that should be visible inside refractive materials, at the expense of extra geometry.
