Dear Zhiyi,

Unfortunately it is quite hard to use G4BREPSolid directly - I would  
not recommend it.

I would suggest to examine whether an existing solid (or a boolean  
operation on a set of existing solids) could be used to yield the  
solid you need or an approximation to it which is adequate.

What is certain is that neither this solid nor any other in Geant4 is  
able to infer information - for example to determine by itself how to  
create some surfaces.

If you described what you want to do, maybe we can offer further advice.

Best regards,
John Apostolakis
