At the beginning of the include file maille.inc, I have the following comment block:
Code:
This macro can create an open or closed ring.
A closed ring would have a helix distance (d) of zero.
An open ring would probably have a helix distance of
2.25 to 2.5 times the wire diameter (WD).

WD = wire diameter
ID = ring I.D.
n = Number of cross-section segments
m = Number of loft segments
d = Helix distance
To create the open ring, my scene code was
Code:
#declare Ring = CreateRing(1,4,24,72,2);
object { Ring rotate <95, 0, 11.3> translate 2*y texture { Steel } };
Is that what you needed? If not, please elaborate on what the problem is.

To be quite honest, none of this makes sense to me at all. I use blender as my CGI tool, and it is a point and click interface:
insert Object ==> manipulate verticies ==> render.

There is none of this bovine excretory matter that you call code, but I WOULD like to learn how to use POVRAY, but when I add your codes, it highlights anything with the word "ring" in it, then S**ts all over itself, WHY IS IT DOING THIS TO ME!!!!!!!! WHY!!!!!!!!!!!!! does ANYONE have ANY tutorials for this program!!!!! HELP ME!!!!!!!


What's upside outside?

It means there's an error in the program, and it wants you to fix it. try putting it in an include file.

You can get POV-Ray at http://pov-ray.org/ and rendering the files is creating a picture.
