Anyone know how to make 2point polys cast shadows? Even with raytracing on they dont cast shadows T.T LW8 here

You don't. 2-point polys have no real dimension and hence cannot cast shadows.

Is there any way to make them cast a shadow anyways?

Make a very thin long 3 or 4 point poly the same length as the 2 point poly on an empty layer. Back in Layout. Select to properties for the new poly and select unseen by camera only. when you render you will see a shadow cast by the new poly but only see the earlier ploy. Everyone will think it is casting the shadow.

IMHO seems like a lot of work for nothing. I would have just made a 4 point poly like I said above. But I don't know what you are tring to do.

I'm using 2 point polys to emulate a wireframe render.
