I'm drawing the following cylinder which represents a water flowing and cooling down

\usepackage[english]{babel} %change language if necessary
\usepackage[english,verbose]{layout}%change language if necessary


\psset{viewpoint=50 50 20 rtp2xyz,Decran=50,lightsrc=viewpoint 
 \psSolid[h=8,r=0.5, object=cylindre, ngrid=50 15, RotZ=30,
hue =1 0 0 0 0 1,linewidth=0.01pt ](0,0,-2.5)  \end{pspicture}


I would like the black lines to disappear, or atleast partially merge with the image. Is there anyway to perform this ?

Did you try to use 0pt for the line width? –  Sigur Mar 30 '13 at 0:03
Yes, it makes white lines which are not really pretty. I have found a way though. Set linewidth = 0pt and plot a second cylinder on top of the first with a slightly different ngrid. –  Mathusalem Mar 30 '13 at 8:09
@Mathusalem Would you like to make that an answer? –  Joseph Wright Aug 11 '13 at 11:08
@Mathusalem, if you have resolved the issue, please post your solution as an answer so others can benefit from the knowledge. :-) –  Paul Gessler Feb 22 at 5:32
