edges into tubes

I make a box. How do I turn the wireframe/edges into tubes. That is to say give the wireframe dimension. Like a shell modifier for edges.

thanks

Best wey to do this is to use Lattice modifier but but mxs expose limited number of properties. Another way can be this method

delete objects
boxy = Box lengthsegs:3 widthsegs:3 heightsegs:3 length:60 width:60 height:60
cage = converttopoly (copy boxy)
max create mode
polyop.createShape cage #{1..polyop.getNumEdges cage} smooth:off name:(boxy.name+"_Cage")
cage = (delete cage ; getnodebyname (boxy.name+"_Cage"))
cage.render_displayRenderMesh = on ; cage.thickness = 2
