GO - Merging Fills


Hello together,


because this former topic about GO seems to be closed now... I've to write a new one anyway, to bring the subject up again (... and I'm thinking about to do something that shows it at top all time... 😏 )


In many projects I used the workaround, to work in early project state with just one building material for solid real materials (concrete, brick´work, etc.) and i.e. another one for insulation materials, etc.  ... to get a seamless display in ground plans and sections... without the obligation having that all just in black.color.

But with a current project, I need alt least to different concrete materials... with different intersection priorities.


Foundation (Ground Plan)



Upper Stories (Ground Plan)



Result in Section



Before GO came, there was a simple rule:

Material displayed with the same fill merges.


Now there is no way to avoid separators between different materials.

(... except using 'Hide Skin Separators'... but this causes a lot of other problems... see linked topic.)


I mean, the GO are actually such a powerful tool... but it's impossible to get this simple display task done. Can that be true?

(I'm disappointed since I've realized this inability (again)... and I yet don't know how to get a proper seamless display in this project....
Maybe I just forget the different materials and try to control the intersection with layer numbers (possible because everything is just orthogonally here...).. but that's no good solution...)

Am I really the only one who faces this issue?
