This question already has an answer here:
I'm working on marine gun turret model and trying to use its drawing/blueprint image to make 3d model more accurate. Blender wireframe view mode is great for modelling but when I switching to it the plane mesh with brawing/blueprint texture also switches to wireframe and texture disappears of course:
I know about 'Maximum Draw Type' object settings and I probably can set Gun model to 'Wireframe' maximum draw type and don't touch viewport display mode. But somethimes it is better to see gun model in solid mode and sometimes in wireframe. So I need something like 'Minimum draw type' and apply it to gun image plane behind the gun model i'm modelling. Can I do it with Blender? Thanks in advance.
