Hi Kristin,

  The simplest approach is to select the icosahedral cage (ctrl-click on 
it), the use inspection selector (button in lower right corner of 
graphics window), and change the "line thickness" parameter to the value 
you want in screen pixels.

  Some other approaches using commands "shape", "hkcage" and "meshmol" 
can do the job -- the meshmol command allowing you to make cylindrical 
edges if you want that:
