Generating Wireframe Renders (for 3ds Max users)

by Beau Perschall

Hey all,

A common question at TurboSquid is how to better present your models to help increase sales. One quick way to help increase your potential audience is to include wireframe renders of your models. It may come as a surprise to you, but we have many clients who won’t even consider buying a model without having a sense of what the wireframe looks like so they can determine if the model meets their project’s needs. Without at least one, these folks will just move on and not even consider your product.

As such, I have created a quick video for everyone on a simple technique to generate these wireframe renders within 3ds Max.

I’m currently working on similar videos for the other 3D apps including Maya, Softimage and Cinema4D, and will post them when done.

    OMG! Very strange and difficult technique. Exists many simple methods.

  3. There are always multiple ways to achieve renders like this in 3ds Max. The advantage to this setup is that once you have the wireframe scene and material set, you can import whatever model you want and have it render out quickly and in the exact same style. However, the more important thing to take away from this is that your wireframe images should be treated with the exact same preparation as you give your fully rendered views. The more professionally you present your work, the better the chances you’ll make sales.
