I want to work on one mesh in edit mode with another, unselected mesh on screen. A typical example would be retopo work. I’m trying to find a way to have mesh I’m working on in wireframe mode while keeping the other in solid shaded mode. Is there an easy solution for this, or do I need some crazy material setup?
In the object panel (orange cube), expand the ‘Display’ options and select “Wire” in the drop-down dialogue for “Type:”. This changes the maximum draw type of the object you have selected. It will always appear in wireframe in the viewport unless you change this option again after retopo.
Worked great. Thanks
