UNfortunately i got this message: A problem occurred with the scene:
Error while building scene: Error while loading diffuse material 'mat1': Invalid character '?'.
buffer, line 6:
vec3(line ? 0.1 : 0.6)
^.

What version of idigo should I be using?

sorry for my ignorance, Ono, but can you explain the || bit of the code within "line"? seems like an "and" or "also" type operation? this effect is similar to somethings I have been trying to work out on my own, combining meanCurvature() with some other property, but I think my approach has been super convoluted so far. I'd like to understand this more...

The shader is working but it is not fit for your scene, contegufo. It works best with smooth surfaces. Subdividing geometries may produce better results too.
