Question Union solid for non-touching solids 

Forum: Geometry
Date: 05 Mar, 2015
From: Chris Howard <Chris Howard>

I have combined multiple solids into one solid using G4UnionSolid, however, in some cases two solids are not touching (but they are the same material). Will G4UnionSolid handle this properly? It seems too, but I want to be sure I'm not missing a requirement.

This would be useful in the case of many small components that are close together as I wouldn't have to worry about tiny overlaps, and I would have the advantage of being able to move the entire structure based on a single Placement. (alternatively, I have to place an 'outer' structure, then worry about other things protruding into this space -- can cause problem in close geometry!).
