    About Controlling the Display of Edges

    Different edge types can be displayed using different colors and linetypes. You can
    also add special effects, such as jitter and line extensions.

    In a shaded or wireframe model, the visual style sets the visibility and appearance
    of isolines, facet edges, silhouette edges, occluded edges, and intersection edges.
    Facet edges (the edges between planar faces representing a surface) are displayed
    only when the angle between the facets is smaller than the crease angle value you
    specify.

    Edge modifiers such as line extension and jitter, produce the appearance of a model
    that is still in the conceptual phase. Jitter makes lines appear as though they were
    sketched with a pencil. Line extension produces another kind of hand-drawn effect.

    NOTE: Plot styles are not available for objects with the Jitter edge modifier applied.

    Show or Hide Occluded Lines and Edges

    Occluded lines are hidden lines made visible by changing its linetype and color.
    In 2D View, you can change the display of occluded linetype with OBSCUREDLTYPE system
    variable and occluded color with OBSCUREDCOLOR system variable.

    You can only change occluded color when the occluded lines are partially or completely
    visible.

    • Hide them or make them partially visible with dashes and dots.
    • Make them completely visible.
    • Make them distinctive or indistinctive by changing its color.
    IMPORTANT:After changing settings for occluded lines or edges, use the HIDE command to regenerate
    the drawing and display the changes.
