make wire frame tubular geometry?

is it posible to convert a wire frame into a renderable skeleton of itself?

i.e you look at a sphere in wire frame and apply geomety to the wireframe so you can control the thickness and shaders on those lines and render them out?

cheers

You could use the vector renderer, or Paint Effects, or you could actually create geometry by extruding a NURBS circle along each isoparm or edge. I think there's a plugin or script that automates that--do a search on HighEnd3D.
