Convert Solid to Wireframe

This action converts all active solids into wireframes. It is started from the menu [Objects]→[Convert Solid to Wireframe] or using the keys <Alt><O><W>.

As opposed to solids, wireframes do not have the ability to generate a surface or compute a volume. On the other hand, wireframes do not impose strict connectivity requirements like solids do, and polycurves in a wireframe can be freely connected to and disconnected from each other, using [Wireframe connections]. Wireframes can be converted back into solids by using [Convert Wireframe to Solid], unless it has become ambiguous as a solid representation.
