Question Can G4EllipticalTube be used with G4PVParameterized? 

Forum: Geometry
Date: 14 Feb, 2018
From: Michael H. Kelsey <Michael H. Kelsey>

I am trying to implement a detector sensor mask, in the form of a pattern of aluminum ellipses (QET fins) on a germanium crystal. The obvious way to do this is with G4PVParameterised, However, I note that G4VPVParameterisation does not include G4EllipticalTube as one of the solids which can be used as argument to ComputeDimensions().

Does this mean that I _cannot_ use ellipses for this situation, or just that I can't implement ComputeDimensions() (I wasn't planning to do so, as all the pads are identical).
