None Can't figure out how to create a particular geometry 

Forum: Geometry

From: Karen Pease <Karen Pease>

I'm trying to create the following geometry - here's a cross section along an axis (let's say the Z axis):


There can be an arbitrary, customizeable number of foils per section and an arbitrary number of sections in the overall geometry; I want to be able to tweak the numbers. Also, the foils and sections won't be perfectly parallel along the Z axis, but will rather point outward slightly along the horizontal axis as one progresses down the Z axis

How would one go about it in Geant4? It looks like the appropriate way would be with assembly volumes, but MakeImprint seems to directly place physical volumes, which would preclude the use of a boolean operation to cut out the center. Plus booleans only work on directly-touching sections anyway, if I'm understanding the manual correctly.

Do I need to hand-calculate and hand-place each foil and barrier - is that the only option?
