Hi George,
 You can turn off the black outlines (but it will turn it off for everything, not just the ribbons) with:

~set silhouette

I don’t know where you got those grid lines. If it is a density map or occupancy map contour surface, you can use the Volume Viewer dialog (in menu under Tools… Volume Data).  In that dialog, you can change color by clicking the square color well under the histogram and using the Color Editor. You can make the mesh less dense by increasing the “step” value above the histogram.  For line thickness or making a more dense mesh, In the Volume Viewer dialog’s menu, show options with Features… Surface and Mesh options.  Then the dialog will contain mesh line thickness, whether you want square mesh, etc.  To get a denser mesh, use the “Subdivide surface” option.


I hope this helps,
