Hi Yuefeng,

you're likely referring to a custom solid which has never been distributed
within Geant4. I don't think this is mentioned in the official manuals either...
If this solid was built based on the obsolete BREPs module, you should
consider that in release 10 the BREPs module is no longer available.

Cheers, Gabriele
