There Are Now NO POVRay Modelers For Linux?

Filed under
Software

NONE? Zero, zip, swabbo, nothing? Empty, the opposite of full?

Because there must be a thousand POVRay front-ends out there that I can find at the end of a Google search, and every last one of them has eliminated itself in some way or another.

* Being mesh-only modelers - Like Wings 3D. It exports to POVRay. Great! But it does that as all mesh2 objects, even a simple sphere. Look, if I want mesh, I'll use Blender. POVRay is for CSG.

* Being Windows only - like Bishop3D. How many POVRay modelers does the Windows platform need, anyway?
