I wanted wireframe mode in openscad so that positioning things inside of other things was easier.

Using GLIntercept, we can accomplish this.

Install GLIntercept from https://code.google.com/p/glintercept/ (if your OpenSCAD is in <b>C:\Program Files (x86)\OpenSCAD</b>, get the 32 bit version of GLIntercept)

Copy <b>gliConfig_FreeCam.ini</b> and <b>OpenGL32.dll</b> from <b>C:\Program Files (x86)\GLIntercept_1_1_0</b> to <b>C:\Program Files (x86)\OpenSCAD</b>

rename <b>gliConfig_FreeCam.ini</b> to <b>gliConfig.ini</b>

start OpenSCAD, open and render an object.

Now while moving the 3d view, hit the keyboard shortcut ctrl-shift-w to enable wireframe. Due to a bug, the keyboard shortcut only seems to work while manipulating the 3d view.
