Note Visualisation of G4SubtractionSolid Box

From: D. A. Prokopovich <>

I have a problem where I have created a detector inside 
a 0.6 mm Aluminium housing. the housing is created by subtracting 
two G4Boxes from each other. The tracking of particles through the 
box appears to be correct for any thickness box I set however when 
being visualised on OpenGL it only shows a single box outline and 
the same in vrml wrl visualisations, irrespective of how thick I 
have set the box to be. When I have visualised the geometry on DAWN 
(mainly to use DAVID to ensure there is no overlapping geometry) 
the box is not drawn at all.

The simulation appears to be running correctly and as I said before, 
GEANT is tracking the particles through the sides of the box for the 
correct thickness. 

Any Help would be greatly appreciated.
