I support this idea totally!

I am considering to purchase the "PrintrBot Jr.", a 3D printer for less than US$
300. Like many 3D printers, it requires stl files. POV-Ray currently lacks the
possibility to export its scenes. Which is a pity. But understandable, because
the way POV-Ray internally handles shapes. They are not meshes, but real shapes.

But there is a 3D editor, which actually can IMPORT POV-Ray files. It is Bishop
3D, and you might want to contact the makers of Bishop 3D. Their software should
be able to handle a few more conversions.
