# cubes + clear black edges

*From*: johns1111@xxxxxx*Date*: 28 Nov 2005 08:46:30 -0800

Hi,

basically I want to draw a set of cubes, e.g. in red, and redraw the

edges so that each cube is clearly visible - look a little bit like

LEGO. That kind of works already, so a cube is drawn, it is shaded and

so on, that was all easy, I draw a set of lines after the cubes around

the cubes for the edges.

So that looks good now for one cube, but if I draw multiple cubes and

some of them form a plain area, because they got the same height and

are adjacent, the lines become hardly visible (dotted and so on) and

sometimes even totally disappear. Currently I just use a set of lines

that I draw in black and I assume that the Z-Buffer or so makes them

disapear if one cube is close to be in front of a line to be drawn.

So my question is: how can I draw always clear and visible edges for my

objects? even if they are next to each other and so on?

.
