I wrote a script that finds the edges of a mesh and creates an edge map and/or creates roughed up edges on the mesh. Just pick a mesh and choose your settings and the script will render out a map for you. The script tessellates the the mesh and colors the vertices black where ever it finds corners, so you can choose if you want the high poly mesh or just bake a edge map to use on the low poly mesh.
