Q - question

How to suppress the tesselation mesh and print only a silhouette of 3D solids?

A - answer Rounded (filleted) 3D solids are meshed using tesselation faces (edges).

To switch off these auxiliary lines in hidden views set the DISPSILH variable to 1 (and adjust ISOLINES). Applies on the HIDE command (and PLOT Hidden), not for SHADEMODE Hidden.
