Good to see that they've posted the how-to info re: POV-Ray. (That was missing
when I looked at the site last year.) From a quick view of those sites, it seems
that you need to start with an STL file first, then convert it to POV-Ray using
their 'stl2pov' utility. I.e., apparently you can't start with a POV-Ray scene
that you've created. Am I wrong about that?

BTW, their stl2pov utility is pre-compiled as a binary, but only for Windows;
Mac users need to compile their own.
