Question Placing Daughter Volumes within repeated Mother Volume 

Keywords: Volume Placement
Forum: Geometry
Date: 09 Aug, 2007
From: Andre <aj_labelle@laurentian.ca>

I am having issues placing a daughter volume within a repeated mother volume. 
Essentially I have three for loops (nested) which place repeated instances of 
the mother volume in a three dimensional quincunx array. What I want is 
to place one instance of the daughter volume in each instance of the mother 
volume. If I declare the placement of the daughter volume inside my nested for 
loops I end up having multiple daughter volumes for each mother volume. However, 
when I declare the placement of the daughter volume outside the nested for loop 
it appears there is only one daughter volume for each mother volume. Since I am 
still fairly new to Geant4 I am not confident that my program is functioning the
way I want. It doesn't make sense to me that declaring the placement of the daughter 
volume outside the loops would place it inside each instance of the mother volume. 
Could someone please explain why this occurs, or let me know if my method is indeed 
incorrect. Thank you.
