Drawing only free faces/edges of a mesh

I am displaying large structured meshes using VTK (vtkStructuredGrid).  I
would like to only draw the free faces (external faces) of the mesh so the
display (and rotation, etc.) is faster.  How do I go about doing this?

Also, what is the recommended way to draw element edges and nodes?  I know
how to use glyphs for the nodes, but this will be way to slow.
