And I would like to see an example of a small  model. For when trouble 
shooting, checking the input file is a valid starting point.

Hi Thomas,

Apologies mate but I have no idea what 'p.b.i' means. The Accutrans conversion
program converts my .dxf file into a single .pov file (no material or geometry
files a la poseray), version 3.5 with a simple 'save as' click. I can then make
any adjustments to the textures etc that I want and call this converted mesh
file into any pov scene I like.

It's shorthand for "povray.binaries.images".

I have never claimed to possess a single shred of sanity. You, however,
often attempt to be the voice of reason ;-)
