Now what about a solid cylinder of some suitable color located inside a larger coaxial or concentric cylinder of the same length, with the surface of the outer cylindrical surface being lightly colored or shaded, but semi-transparent enough so that the inner cylinder can be seen inside it, through the outer cylinder's surface? (A 3D semitransparent view of an optical fiber, with the cylindrical fiber core visible thru the outer surface of the fiber cladding, is what I'm after.) (And again, no surface lines, if possible.)
