Dear Colleague,

please try:

Show[Show[Map[Plot3D[{#, GrayLevel[0]}, {x, 0, 2}, {y, 2, 6},
DisplayFunction -> Identity] &, {Sin[x*y], Cos[x*y]}]] /. Polygon[p_] :>
Line[Append[p, First[p]]],  DisplayFunction -> $DisplayFunction]

(*This example by Prof. Dr. Frank Brand, Visual Analysis GmbH*)

If you are interested in "hand-woven graphics" I have such as well.

Betreff: [mg30189] Drawing transparent objects.

Dear MathGroup members,
I would like to draw transparent three-
dimensional objects
(cuboids, graphs of functions and such things),
i.e. objects with unfilled mesh.
I searched the Mathematica book for a option or 
graphics directive, but didn't find one.
Is there a simple way solve the problem or have I 
to do this by defining the graphics objects by 

Thanks for your help and best regards,
	Johannes Ludsteck
