# How to increase the thickness and change colors of the edges in a mesh?

Consider 10 random points as

pts =  RandomReal[{-1, 1}, {10, 3}];


The edges of the polyhedron formed by these points can be visualized as

HighlightMesh[DelaunayMesh[RandomReal[{-1, 1}, {10, 3}]],
Style[2, Opacity[0.]]]


However, The edges are thin. I want to change the thickness of the edges and the colors as well.

Edit 1

In my approach and the answer provided by @Szabolcs, all the edges along with some inner planes are visible while I need only the outer edges and no surface or plane.

How can I do this?

Edit 2

I got it.

Show[HighlightMesh[
ConvexHullMesh[pts], {Style[1, {Black}],
Style[2, Opacity[0.]]}]]


For some reason, these options don't work directly in DelaunayMesh in 3D (they do for 2D meshes), but they do work in a MeshRegion applied afterwards.

m = DelaunayMesh[RandomReal[{-1, 1}, {10, 3}]]

MeshRegion[m,
MeshCellStyle -> {2 -> None,
1 -> Directive[AbsoluteThickness[3], Red]}]


• I don't mind how it is done. I am happy with the result. Thanks. Aug 22, 2018 at 14:23
• However, I have found two problems with this solution. Firstly, it shows all the edges (which was there in my approach as well) while I need only the outer edges and not the diagonals. Secondly, I find that some of the surfaces formed by these points are still not transparent. Aug 22, 2018 at 14:40
• @Majis What are "diagonals"? Aug 22, 2018 at 14:49
• @Majis Regarding inner edges, that was not in your question. If I understand what you are sayig then you want the ConvexHullMesh, not the DelaunayMesh. Aug 22, 2018 at 14:50
• The diagonals are the edges which do not lie on the surface of the convex hull formed by these points. Aug 22, 2018 at 14:51
