I’ve mapped 3 view jpg reference images onto planes to be used as modelling guides.

Is there a way to View reference images in wireframe mode ?

Hi
I’m still pretty new to hexagon but If you want to be able to see through your model while still viewing your reference image there is an icon along the bottom for turning on transparent display of sub selection, which might do the trick.

Yep, found that one, its sort of what I want but still not transparent enough to see my background images clearly.

I’ve since found it is easiest to apply a material to the model and set transparency slider to 100% which gives me a wireframe view for modelling.

@ausair yup it is pretty clear even with the slider set at 60 ~ 70%  depends on the colour you choose, sort of can enhance the contrast, either that or I have funny eyes.  big surprise
