I see that G4ExtrudedSolid is implemented in geant4. However, there does not seem to be any implementation of "Revolved solid", i.e., sweeping an arbitrary surface around a fixed axis to make solids. The only example I can find on google is http://indico.cern.ch/getFile.py/access?contribId=16&sessionId=53&resId=0&materialId=slides&confId=44566. However, it is not yet included in the official release.
Like G4ExtrudedSolid, solid of revolution is a standard CAD function that is used a lot in building geometries. Perhaps I did not look in the right place. Can anyone tell me how to get around this problem. If they are indeed messing, I would like to strongly urge the geant4 team to add this functionality to the geometry.
