Enable hidden line removal.

Wireframe geometry will be drawn using hidden line removal if the rendering engine supports it.

Disable this with disable_hidden_line_removal.

all_renderersbool, default: True

If True, applies to all renderers in subplots. If False, then only applies to the active renderer.


Create a side-by-side plotter and render a sphere in wireframe with hidden line removal enabled on the left and disabled on the right.

>>> import pyvista as pv
>>> sphere = pv.Sphere(theta_resolution=20, phi_resolution=20)
>>> pl = pv.Plotter(shape=(1, 2))
>>> _ = pl.add_mesh(sphere, line_width=3, style='wireframe')
>>> _ = pl.add_text("With hidden line removal")
>>> pl.enable_hidden_line_removal(all_renderers=False)
>>> pl.subplot(0, 1)
>>> pl.disable_hidden_line_removal(all_renderers=False)
>>> _ = pl.add_mesh(sphere, line_width=3, style='wireframe')
>>> _ = pl.add_text("Without hidden line removal")
