Re: None Revolved Solid in geant4 (Chen-Yu Liu)

Hello Chen-Yu Liu,

While some of the more advanced volume constructions you might want do not seem implemented in G4 (e.g. sweeping a surface along an arbitrary line in space), the G4Polycons class enables you to define an arbitrary 2-dimensional surface of point pairs - such as (R,Z) in cylindrical coordinates - and then sweep them around an axis of revolution - such as theta in cylindrical coordinates - to create "revolved solids" of an arbitrary 2D surface.

Read about them in the G4 User's Guide: http://geant4.web.cern.ch/geant4/UserDocumentation/UsersGuides/ForApplicationDeveloper/html/ch04.html#sect.Geom.Solids

Hope this helps.
