Okay. I implemented a "BuildEnvelope" function at the base class level, which uses the class' internal known dimensions to construct an appropriate G4Box (or G4Tubs) and wrap it in an LV. As I realize now, this also has the advantage of clearly separating the "full structure" functionality from the "shape." -- Mike
