ok, so I did:

G4double coneRadiusTop = 3.1877*cm; G4double coneRadiusBot = 2.54*cm; G4double semiAxis = (coneRadiusTop-coneRadiusBot)/reflectorHeight; G4double zHeight = (coneRadiusTop+coneRadiusBot)/(2.*semiAxis);

G4EllipticalCone *space_solid = new G4EllipticalCone("space_solid", semiAxis,semiAxis,zHeight,reflectorHeight/2.); space_log = new G4LogicalVolume(space_solid,spaceMaterial,"space_log");

And I get a volume overlap error when trying to make these cones the daughter volume of an object (the "reflector") of height of reflector (0.599*cm). The volume overlap goes away if I shrink zHeight by a mysterious 1.7342 mm but messes the cone dimensions up completely. Any ideas?
