I'm drawing a piping system for power plants, and one of the problems is that a ring is created when a straight pipe joins with a elbow. Normally I turn on dispsilh and have the viewport plot in hidden mode. All the elements look perfect, but where ever a straight pipe joins to an elbow we see a ring. The trick that I've used was covering that ring with a pure white hatch in paperspace so that in the final presented form that is ring is covered. I'm wondering if there is a way to automatically make that ring not appear when plotted.
The ring needs to disappear because I've had people confuse it with a weld, when I have a seperate 3D drawn in other specific locations.
