Line Shading

I want to do line shading.  Is it a form of Hatching?  In case I don't get my lighting set right (which I will) I'll do the shading with lines.  Any references?

Two possibilities are shown in the attached screenshots. IMO, however, it'll be worth your while to get the lighting right. (I've found that one Ambient light and one Headlight, each one watt with Color (RGB) = 128,128,128, are just fine for probably 90 percent of my renders.)

I had a Headlight and Ambient light but in World Plan I was getting washed out so I wanted to try something different.  It also helped to change the part of mine to a lighter shade of green.  It works in Iso view.  I just have a flat object about 7" dia ant 1/16 thick.

re: ...but in World Plan, it was getting washed out...

Try turning off the Headlight; I believe it's reflecting back at you.

That helps.  I usually use Draft just to check the parts with each part a different color to make sure how it is assembled and usability.  If I need a rendered drawing to submit to someone I can make the necessary adjustments.

Thanks for you for your help as usual,
