If you are running a recent 3.71 version, the following method & code 
will get you to an isosurface.

Folks, I kindly ask you to avoid protracted cross-posting.

Anyone using a proper newsreader please set the "followup-to" field when
replying to this thread. Since attachments are involved in this
discussion, I've decided to go for "povray.binary.utilities".

Test manually selecting one of cross posted to newsgroups. In 
Thunderbird followup-to deactivates my send button...

Test leaving newsgroup items, but adding followup-to (which does not 
de-activate my send button)

For others in thunderbird, what worked for me was leaving the (2) 
newsgroups and adding a followup-to line below them in the followup pop 
up.

It doesn't work. I didn't wait long enough for thunderbird to refresh... 
Only way I get down to one group in thunderbird is to delete all but one 
of the newgroup reply lines...

Just adding the followup-to below the multiple newsgroup addresses does 
work - for replies coming afterward in any of the groups. I didn't give 
my brain time to refresh...

Thanks but I think the prism generated by Inkscape is faster to render. :-)

I'll show you the result when it is done. :-)
