Dear Jerome, Your request is a little unclear, so please excuse if I reiterate some basic concepts, which are key to creating a geometry. If this does not answer your question, please provide further information, and we will try to do this. - The solid is the shape of a volume, and it can be a box, a polycone or a boolean solid (the result of an operation between two other solids.) - Only when you have a solid can you create a logical volume, which add a material, visualisation properties (optional), a field (optional) and other attributes. - A physical volume represents one (or a set of) these logical volumes which has/have been placed each in a particular location. So the two concepts and classes, physical volumes (including parameterised volumes) and solids, are completely separate. You cannot use a parameterised volume (which is a type of physical volume) as one part of a solid. It is the wrong type. If you could explain further what you want to achieve, it could be possible to suggest how to implement it. Best regards, John Apostolakis
