I recently got the collection of D3 Smartparts and have had mixed feelings about them. One of my issues is with rendering. I want to do an interior rendering of a kitchen with a boatload of cabinets, but when I go to render, the drawer lines and lines between doors on the cabinets disappear.

Can anyone tell me where the magic button is?

One method that I like using when producing kitchen renders is making a sketch render to bring out the lines that may not show up in bare archicad renders and/or lightworks renders. Using a sketch render over your rendering will make your drawer lines and lines between doors on the cabinets appear. I'll attach a sample. Hope this helps.
