Question Minimum distance between two surfaces to decide rod length

Dear Geant4 Experts

I am trying to build an array of liquid scintillator detectors, for which the support structure is to be build. So I made the structure as shown in the attached file in which there are five circular iron support structure surrounds the central one in a pentagon shape. I would like to interconnect them with a iron rod having inner diameter as 12mm and outer diameter as 20mm. The question is how do I calculate the minimum distance between the two structure to decide the rod length ??? Presently I have all the co-ordinates of the centre of all the rings in the experimental hall.

Presently the five rings has 15degree polar angle with central ring. So, now once the rod length is calculated then how do I calculate the orientation of the rod length with respect to the experimental hall??

Presently experimental hall is the mother volume for all the rings.

I would appreciate if any one can help me for the above issues.

Thanks !!!
