Question Esamples of usage of boolean geometry 

Forum: Geometry
Date: 19 May, 2016
From: Maura E.M. <Maura E.M.>

I started to develop my Linac model with Topas. I got stuck when I got to the multi-leaf collimator. Its complexity cannot be resolved through Topas instructions. The geometry of the different leaf types would be best obtained through Boolean operations. Unfortunately at the time being Boolean geometry has not been developed in Topas. I have no other option but develop the multi-leaf collimator through GEANT4 instructions. Since I have very little experience with GEANT4 I would greatly appreciate getting some examples of usage of Boolean geometry. I only have the slides from a GEANT4 introductory course. They only describe the instructions.

Thank you very much. Mauede (
