None Parameterization and Repeated Volumes in Geant4

From: Jonathan <Jonathan>

Hello all. I am a new user to Geant4, so this is probably an easy question for most, although I couldn't find the answer. My project requires that I build a simulation that builds a blood vessel, with about 15 concentric shells for the outer wall. For this, I assume I would use repeated volumes, because of the symmetry involved. Is this a fair assumption? Next, however, a more complex project is that I will need to import information from a file (already made) into voxels from a anthropomorpic phantom, which will have different materials. It would seem that I should build I parameterization for this, but I cannot find a way to do that without having space between the voxels. In other words, when I make the geometry, how does Geant deal with boundaries between volumes? Is there anyway to write a parameterization that doesn't have any space between the sequential volumes. Any help getting me started on this would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance...
