The Xray material type provides a useful tool for illustrative renderings. It is often used to create a faded view through an outer shell.

When applied to a part, the Xray effect works by showing more of the material color on areas of the surface that are being viewed at more of an angle. The surface is nearly completely transparent where it is viewed at a direct angle.

Note: the Xray material does not cast shadows.
