Question Custom solid behavior on daughters and surfaces 

Forum: Geometry
Date: 01 Dec, 2017
From: Juan-Pablo Yanez <Juan-Pablo Yanez>

Hi,

I'm a little new to Geant4 and I've been tasked with a project that involves custom-made solids. The specific problem I'm having is with a C shaped solid (custom) with some finite thickness. The solid is placed in a water volume as a daughter.

I want to track photons that start inside the C region (mother volume). In the first step, they check the DistanceToIn of the daughters, and detect the solid boundary. If they are reflected, however, they start as being in the surface of the C (daughter), and the code does not check any more intersections with the other walls. Does anyone know what am I doing wrong?

Thanks.
