you can render a wireframe using vector rendering..make the normals all hard and it will render all the edges

i found out a pretty cool technique to do this and pretty fast.
I turned on Wireframes mode, selected any shader and flipped it all the way to white. This way you dont see the back wireframes and only the front wireframes. Then i play blasted it. Render quality looked almost the same when i play blasted it. Its great for turn tables.
