How to Improve Renderings

Edge lines are a perfect way to show off detail in a SketchUp model. But what happens when the user wants to render a high quality image of their model? If edge lines aren’t used, the details can be washed out due to lighting and material choices. Using rendering software that can support edge lines can give the user a high quality image as well as helping to make the details of their model stand out.

Please take a look at the images above. Notice how in the image without edge lines, the details in the cabinets are washed out and flat, it is very hard to tell what type of trim work was adding to them. But the image with edge lines, the details of the trim stand out and are easily seen.
#1 Kitchen rendered with edge lines.
#2 Kitchen rendered without edge lines. Details are washed out

#3 This image was photoshoped. Used a rendered image wihtout edge lines (like image #2) and blended it with another image of only edge lines. Note: The edge lines are not reflected.
