How do I create wireframe images for a client?

I am looking for a way to create wireframe images from some models I created in Onshape.  The images will be used by a patent attorney.  I've tried creating drawings but the edges are to thick.  The patent attorney has access to eDrawings but we havent figured out how to get the models into Edrawings.  Step and Solidworks models wont work.  Any ideas?

    Go to the view menu (below view cube top right) and change the shading mode. This would be much better than edrawings.

    I see where translucent has long ago replaced wireframe (https://forum.onshape.com/discussion/211/improvements-to-onshape-november-20-2014#latest (number 4)). I am getting colored/shaded translucent bodies. I need clean black and white wireframe with consistent line weight (for a patent application). Hidden Lines gives me light grey hidden lines, and translucent gives me a watercolor shading of the imported parts in my assembly. Is there a way to get clean, black, consistently weighted wireframe (including the hidden lines) either on screen or in a drawing?

    Drawings is the correct way to do this and you can modify the line weight in the drawing properties
