I still have the files. The problem - as far as I can judge at this 
stage - is that the mannequin needs Moray for posing and moving the 
different parts, after which it is exported to a POV-Ray file to be 
included in a scene. That was how it worked at the time. Possibly I 
would need now to rework such a POV-Ray include into macros to make it 
work from there. Not sure, and unfortunately I have little time to 
plunge deeper in the matter at present. On hold for now, but who knows...?

That is very true.
I got however a warning by Malwarebyte about a trojan at the site Ingo 
mentioned in the threat (https://chiselapp.com/....) in 2018. Real or 
false positive? I did not dare to go further. (I have not yet checked if 
I have a copy on my other laptop though).
