I want to force all tracks to stop at a specified plane bounded by a circle or rectangle; my SteppingAction will then sample the track. This plane can intersect multiple volumes in the mass world, and need not be parallel to any coordinate axis. There can be multiple planes, but they can never intersect within their boundaries. At present I am using a limiting process that is both inefficient and inaccurate.
If I could construct a solid that has zero thickness, I could place it into a parallel world and that would use the geometry navigation to do this. So a related question is:
How can I construct a valid solid with zero thickness?
This would be a special solid modeled loosely after G4Tubs/G4Box. Perhaps it is possible to "pop" the navigator up one level at the same step it "entered" this solid. This volume would never have any daughters, of course.
I don't want to use a Tubs or Box with a thickness of a few nanometers or microns, as that requires setting the tracking parameters so small that efficiency is lost.
