Tip of the Week - Edge Lines

Use Edge lines for better detail
Kitchen rendered with edge lines:
(Not a Photo. This is a Photo Realistic rendering created with IRender nXt from a SketchUp model.)
Kitchen rendered without edge lines. Details are washed out

The Edge Lines feature displays the edges of faces when rendered. This is especially valuable with scenes which contain cabinets or furniture where edge lines are necessary to bring out the detail of the components. If edge lines aren’t used, the details can be washed out due to lighting and material choices.
