Question overlapping volumes with same material 

Forum: Geometry
Date: 30 Jul, 2013
From: Jean-Pascal Laedermann <Jean-Pascal Laedermann>


It seems that Geant 4 doesn't allow overlaps of two volumes in the same mother. But if the volumes are made from the same material, this should not be a problem, isn't it?

Does Geant 4 stop in the intersection or continue with a choice of one the volumes ?

In Geant 3 was a 'MANY' flag for these situations ...

Best regards.
