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
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.
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

- Make them distinctive or indistinctive by changing its color.
