Default Turning wireframe mesh into geometry?

How do I take a sphere, for instance, and generate geometry based on its wireframe? How do I control the thickness of the "wires"?

Thanks.

select each "wire" and run the duplicate curve command. The create a circle and extrude it along the curve. You can control the thickness by changing the radius of the circle.

Are you talking about a NURBS sphere?
