None Geometry problem with Parmeterised Volumes

Hello all,

i have a geometry problem with my detector setup using Parameterised Volumes.

My mission is to simulate a neutron detector containing multiple identical 3He tubes in a Paraffin Block.

My detector geometry is supposed to contain following things :

1) Target Hall 2) Paraffin Block 3) 3He Tubes 4) Al Tubes surrounding the 3He Tubes

I am able to parameterize the 3He Tubes and place them on a circle in a defined radius from the center and within the Paraffin Block.

In the real world the 3He-Gas is in a Al tube.

But, as discussed before and mentioned in the manual, it looks like Geant doesn't allow me to parameterize the Al tubes and place them, since i am not allowed to have multiple parameterized daughter volumes.

My question now : "Does anybody have an idea how to work around this???"

Thanks for your help, Sascha Falahat
