Unfortunately it seems to convert all geometry to a mesh before 
exporting to POV :-( I was hoping that finally someone had written a 
proper POV exporter from CAD data...

As a CAD tool though it looks an excellent introduction and hobby tool. 
Perfect for creating those "engineered" type objects (especially with 
lots of rounded edges) with the same parametric flexibility that you 
have in SDL.
