I use PovRay at work to do 3D views of new window products. It is a real pain to
first create the shape in AutoCAD, extrude it, save it as 3DS, convert to mesh2,
then render. Is there some way we could have a prism type that would allow
curves instead of straight lines?. I know all about the other line types, but
frankly they are cumbersome. Ideally I would like to reads in the DXF polyline
and then use it in a prism.

The rendering I have done have been impressive to the architects and owners and
they all ask if I used AutoCAD...no, I say, I use POVRay!
