Hello all. I need some help with volume measurement for a complex object in GEANT4. I have created a physical (and corresponding logical) volume by adding and subtracting several G4 spheres, cubes, etc. The resulting volume is a complex shape which is hard to measure. Is it possible to measure the actual volume (in cm3) of the complex object through GEANT4? G4 is able to keep track of an object's boundaries and identify the region within the world which is occupied by the object. Therefore, from this information, it should be able to determine the volume of the object and give the value to the user. Is this possible?
The function GetVolume() has been mentioned in a few Geant4 course PPT files online, but I'm not yet clear if this is the way to go. Can someone help?
