ok, there are two ways, essentially[*], to deal with a shadow: adapt the
light_source or the object.  there are 'shadowless' (lights) and 'no_shadow'
modified objects; you can get the details from this page:
<https://wiki.povray.org/content/Reference:Keywords>

[*] but bear in mind that many of the regulars here know a _lot_ more about
POV-Ray than I do :-).

also meant to mention, re cylindrical lines, there's a 'sphere_sweep' primitive
which folks here use to good effect to make "lines", recently eg Dave Blandston.


regards, jr.
