Question a question on replica's usage 

Forum: Geometry

I would like to build such a model. A boxes pattern of dimension M * N which stand tightly to each other. The M*N number is quite big - about 200-300. So I consider usage of replicas in order to save memory. So at first I create a line G4PVReplica of M boxes into mother logical volume A. Then I create a line G4PVReplica of N logical volumes A in direction perpendicular to previous one into mother logical volume B. I hope at this moment I'm doing right. But finally I need to put an empty space boxes pattern of dimension P * Q in the center of already created pattern M*N. Suppose I create a new logical volume containing P*Q vacuum boxes. But is there any possibility to place it in pattern M*N? According to this from Application tutorial "Normal placement volumes may be placed inside replicas, provided that they do not intersect the mother's or any previous replica's boundaries" it seems to me that it's impossible. What is the solution then? Tnank you very much.
