Question Determine previous volume with sensitive detector 

Forum: Event and Track Management
Date: 07 Jun, 2018
From: Wade <Wade>

I have a sensitive detector defined and I would like to know the volume the particle was in just prior to hitting the SD. Since the PreStep starts right at the detector, I don't think I can get that information from the step provided by the SD (please let me know if this is incorrect).

My thoughts are to do something like the extended example runAndEvent/RE01 and save the track, and then in the EventAction, match them up and figure it out that way. Please also let me know if there is a more efficient way to do this (maybe in the stepping action?).
