Dear Oguzhan, Typically a volume is ignored in a Geant4 simulation if it is incorrectly placed - e.g. if it placed complete outside its parent volume. With the complexity of your geometry description, it is difficult to verify whether this is the case by inspecting your code. I suggest to run the overlap checking for your geometry, which should help you to identify many of the geometry errors that could result in volumes not been intersected in the simulation. After this, I suggest to try tracking with a few simple ‘rays’ (either geantinos or gammas) with verbose tracking to see whether the volumes that you expect to be cross in your simulation are seen by Geant4 tracking.

So i created some of parts of the Linac like Jaws, Baseplate under the Jaws, Phantom and MLCs. I used parameterization algorithm for creating MLCs but there is something wrong about it. What i mean i set the MLCs by using parameterized volumes and place them into seperated containers cause of GEANT4 wanted me to divide parameterized volumes into different logical volumes. GEANT4 warns me that one logical volume (in that case containers) has only the same parameterized volumes' logical volume. So i created 2 of MLCs that have different geometry and then parameterized them into 4 of containers which are "CarriageA +X" , "CarriageA -X", "CarriageB +X", "CarriageB -X" When i run my simulation scoring deposit doses, particles go through the parameterized-MLCs and nothing happens.. parameterized-MLCs dont block the particles like they are not there.. I see them all in the QT as a solid geometries but they dont interact with the particles. When i get the scoring datas there are just 2 of MLCs that blocks the particles and the others don't. You can see in the figure at attachment. Also i upload my geometry source files so you can find them too.
