High resolution images

With a white background you should also include:

set depth_cue=0
set ray_trace_fog=0

To change the lighting of the object during a ray trace:

set direct=0 (values from 0 to 1)

Other values to play with during ray tracing:

set orthoscopic=0
set antialias=1.0

When doing a final rendering, the following will improve resolution of the image

ray 2400,2400

This will give you an image 2400 by 2400 pixels. This can be used to create smaller images but with a higher resolution. After you have a 2400 by 2400 image you can convert this to a 600 dpi image using an image editor such as photoshop which will give you a 4" by 4" high quality final image.
