Hei, I wonder how I can read/re-use geometry description from another file. I want to take the geometry description of a single detector I already designed and import to another DetectorConstruction class file which should create an array from the first file. I want to use some sort of inputstream, so that I don't have to maintain two files, when we change something on the basic detector construction. A) From what I have seen in the examples, I could export the first set-up as a gdml or plain-text file and read it again. But can I also directy use the class (.cc file) I created before? B) How would I dor example directly load the detector from example B4DetectorConstruction.cc into a new file? c) How do I deal with the world volumes of two detectors, that may then overlap? So assume I created a quite big world volume in B4DetectorConstruction.cc, because I didn't think the size was important. Once I load the detector in an array (and created a largest volume, say ExperimentalHall), the "world volumes" of two detectors in the array potentially overlap. Although it's the same properties for the volumes, usually I want to avoid this, don't I? Is there another option then just manually going back and defining a smaller world volume in the B4DetConst.cc file? I'm sorry for asking probably very easy questions and I'd be very happy if you could also simply point out a tutorial/examples I should look up. (I guess I would come to ask this questions if I had more programming experience.) Thanks!
