Re: Question FarOutsideCurrentVolume exceptions (Johannes Hoppenau)

Maybe this is a geometry problem. I run /geometry/test/recursive_test and got outputs like the following:

DistanceToOut(p,v) = kInfinity for point inside
    Solid name = WCBarrelAnnulus
    Local position =          -1708       1221.21             0 cm
GeomTest Error: SolidProblem
    DistanceToOut(p,v) = kInfinity for point inside
    Solid name = WCBarrelRing
    Local position =          -1708       1221.21             0 cm

This point is far outside of the WCBarrelAnnulus. The WCBarrelRing is the daugter volume of the annulus. It is used to divide it in Z direction. At the moment, there is only on WCBarrelRing that fills the howl WCBarrelAnnulus volume.
