Re: Question 30000 beads in a detector (Michael Mayer)

Hi Michael,

Geant4 can certainly handle a number of volumes of that kind (and much more),
however, knowing the exact structure if your setup, you can think to use a
parameterisation on the position of the spheres in your PVT solid; this way a
single volume for the spheres will be represented in memory.

Cheers, Gabriele
