Hi Vinzenz,

Did you fix your problem by any chance? I looked at your GDML file that you attached and I am able to read it in my Geant4 application (version 4.9.1) without problems. Here is a picture of your input. Does this look OK to you?

I have only changed the XMLSchema-instance to:

<gdml xmlns:xsi="" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="/opt/GDML_3_0_0/schema/gdml.xsd">

I run into the same problem when I run my code which contains several GDML files:

*** G4Exception : UnknownInsideOutside
      issued by : G4TessellatedSolid::Inside()
Cannot determine whether point is inside or outside volume!
*** Fatal Exception *** core dump ***

*** G4Exception: Aborting execution ***

Do you know more about how to fix this problem? Thanks,


An update on my problem with the UnkownInsideOutside error:

I've reduced my gdml-file to just one volume and I'm only loading this gdml-file (no extra volumes are constructed) and I still get the error when I run interactivly /geometry/test/grid_test.

I'm attaching the file (it's now small enough to do that) as plain text.

Can somebody check whether there's an error in the file (it was created with fastray) or whether this is a bug in the code? Thanks,
