Thank you both very much for your responses. Very kind of you to take the time.

Witek: Regarding the GDML modules being read in: I understand they work the way they do, I guess I was just wondering if there was a simply way to have them read in only once. I like the module concept because it means I can separate out parts and run simulations on specific “sub-assemblies”. For now, I’m just commenting out my call to a materials file except for the top-most level file. Not a big deal, just didn’t want to be doing that extra work every time if there was a shortcut. It would be great if at some point an “if not read...” could be addd in!

And yes, I used to always include elements in mixtures and it worked just fine. Of course, this is not a problem to define separate elements and materials; I was just curious.

Vladimir: I didn’t know there was a flag to turn off the multiple materials warning. Of course, I think the warning makes sense not just from a logic standpoint, but from a memory standpoint. Your point #5 I agree with. If a material is redefined, it could greatly reduce memory requirements if it was not re-created. A warning would still probably be pertinent.

Cheers, Brent
