How do I...

I'm rendering an assembly that has several components that are constructed one on top of the other to create a wall. The mating edges are mated flush. I want to show mating line in the rendered photo. Is there anyway I can go about this??

A few ways.
leave a tiny gap between the pieces
Add a very small fillet or chamfer around the edges of the pieces, this will higlight the edges of the pieces in the rendering.
Use contour rendering to add the edges of the pieces (shown as a line) in the rendered image.

Thanks Rob. I was going to try putting a fillet on the edges next. I'll give the contour rendering a shot first.
