Just a thought. A wireframe is not a solid it is just the edges as far 
as I understand it.

When I use PoseRay. I do not allow it to render the scene but export the 
geometry and material then import it into Bishop3D* to work on it and 
view it in openGL.

Bishop3D is a modeller for PovRay which is now free but only works with 
PovRay Ver 3.6
Also you would need to use an older version of PoseRay ver or 
Bishop3D will not be able to import it.
