Dear Giuseppe

If you can see it with VRML then it should be OK for all drivers.

I would say, however, that writing a new shape is quite a tough challenge. You should test it thoroughly by firing particles (geantinos) from all directions and positions and seeing if there are holes in your algorithms. A first test might be to view a volume with RayTracer ("/vis/open RayTracer") or RayTracerX from various viewpoints. It uses the Geant4 tracking algorithms.

John
