<a href=3D Tool Illustrator" align="left" border="0" hspace="10" vspace="10" />A Wireframe effect outlines the contours of an object but leaves each surface transparent. Since the tech boom in the late 1990’s, Wireframe effects have been extremely popular and synonymous with technology. However, creating these effects usually involved the use of a 3D modeling program. It was possible to fake this effect in Illustrator but, as with many “faked” effects, the results are usually unpredictable and not top quality. Illustrator CS has changed all of that with 3D effects though. You can now reduce any 3D object you create to a wireframed object. In this exercise, you will learn, not only how to accomplish this, but a highly used technique for incorporating wireframe objects with other artwork.

Matt Kloskowski has a fantastic tutorial on how to create a 3D wireframe effect at IllustratorWorld.
