Question Efficient voxelization for 2D arrangement of G4PVParametrised? 

Forum: Geometry
Date: 07 Feb, 2018
From: Michael H. Kelsey <Michael H. Kelsey>

I want to implement a two-dimensional layout of repeated small features on a flat surface (sensor pads extracted from a detector photolithography mask). The arrangement of pads covers the top of a disk, but has no simple 1D symmetry (the electrode lines for the pads follow a four-fold "labyrinth" shape, with a roughly circular central region).

According to the App Guide (Section, "[I]f a valid axis (the axis along which the parameterisation is performed) is specified, a simple one-dimensional voxelisation algorithm is applied; if 'kUndefined' is specified instead, the default three-dimensional voxelisation algorithm applied for normal placements will be activated."

In my case, where there's no single preferred axis, but there is a constraint that everything lies in a single X-Y plane, is there a way to encourage "efficient" voxelization? Should I perhaps indicate "kRho", or will that suppress azimuthal voxelization entirely?
