Dear John,

Thanks for your comprehensive anwser. If I understood well, I can't be sure that the tracking in my geometry is done correctly.

However, when I launch geantinos (or photon or electrons), I don't get any overlap/tracking message error. Does it mean it is ok ?

As I wrote above, I have two types of overlaps. To make it clear I attached two pictures to this message.

Is there a way to tell GEANT4 that these vacum volumes is just "dummy", only used to make 4 copies of the same volumes it contains (and to have a clear code); and just not consider it as a physical volume ?

Also what I tried to do is to make the solid volume of the "dummy" vacuum box to be a precise enveloppe of what it contains. To do so, I need to make the Union solid of several boxes. And I get an error message after trying to make a union of two union solids (each of them being the union of 2 boxes). The error does not come out during compilation time or when the geometry is built, but when I try to visualize the detector. Is it normal ? I mean, is it normal that union solids can't go futher than the union of 3 boxes ?

Thanks in advance.
