Question different navigation routine 

Forum: Geometry
Date: 19 Aug, 2014
From: Anthony LaTorre <Anthony LaTorre>

I've been working on a library for the fast simulation of photons which currently has its own independent geometry representation. I'd like to be able to use these routines to represent the geometry in a Geant4 simulation. Is this possible? My library has the ability to do answer the following questions given a position in the geometry and a direction:

- What is the distance to the next boundary?
- What material am I currently in?

I **believe** these are the only two pieces of information that Geant4 needs from the geometry. Is this correct?

If so, is there any easy way to plug this into Geant4. I've been looking at the navigation routines, but haven't been able to make sense of them.
