Allan Hayes posted the following to the Mathgroup on 5/25/98 in
[mg12588] Re: About plotting a surface.
ParametricPlot3D[{x,y,Sin[x+ Sin[y]], EdgeForm[]},{x,0,6},{y,0,6}]

[mg12655] Re: About plotting a surface.
NoMesh2[Graphics3D[c_,rest___]]:=
Graphics3D[{EdgeForm[],c/._EdgeForm :>Sequence[]},rest]
The code above is a more robust (and a bit more complicated) than a
version Roman-Meader gave in
The Mathematica Journal 2(3), 32. This version is more robust because
it will get rid of any EdgeForm directives that may be present.

The graphics generated by Plot3D[] are represented by Mathematica as
SurfaceGraphics objects, for which Mesh is a valid option. Surfaces
generated by ParametricPlot3D[] are represented internally with more
general Graphics3D objects, which do not support a Mesh option. The
elimination of lines can be achieved through the EdgeForm[] directive,
which is used to modify the Polygon[] primitives in the Graphics3D
object.
Here is an example using a ParametricPlot3D[]-generated sphere
<<Graphics`ParametricPlot3D`
gr = (ParametricPlot3D[
{Cos[u] Cos[v], Sin[u] Cos[v], Sin[v]},
{u, 0, 2Pi, Pi/20},
{v, -Pi/2, Pi/2, Pi/10}, DisplayFunction -> Identity] /.
Polygon[x_] -> {EdgeForm[], Polygon[x]} )
Show[gr, DisplayFunction -> $DisplayFunction]
The operation above uses ReplaceAll[] (/.) to place all Polygon[]
primitives inside of lists which contain a null argument EdgeForm[]
directive.
See Section 2.9.9 of _the Mathematica Book_ for details.
You can also paste the following ButtonBox[] in a Mathematica notebook
to create a hyperlink that will point you to the relevant section.

ButtonBox[\(Using\ the\ EdgeForm\ directive\),
ButtonData:>{"2.9.9", "9.14"},
ButtonStyle->"MainBookLink"],
