Hi,

Apologies for the delayed response.

I don't know if it changes anything. If it doesn't work as expected, please let us know.

The surface RINDEX is only for backpainted surfaces.

It depends on what you want. According to the Book for Application Developers: The border surface is an ordered pair of physical volumes, so in principle, the user can choose different optical properties for photons arriving from the reverse side of the same interface.
