    Hi,
    How do you apply material ?
    Do you use one layer by material ?
    Exemple :
    Windows Glass - Glass material
    Windows mullion - aluminium material
    etc..
    Do you know attach by layer ?

    I believe some books recommend that the user assign materials to specific layers rather than to individual objects.
