Question Numbering with AssemblyVolumes 

Forum: Geometry
Date: 16 Feb, 2009
From: <>

In my application I am placing volumes in the WorldVolume via the MakeImprint method of G4AssemblyVolume. I can retrieve their numbering correctly via the following instruction:

G4int detCode = aStep->GetPreStepPoint()->GetTouchable()->GetReplicaNumber(depth);

in my sensitive detector class (the value of depth in this case is 1). Using instead MakeImprint to place the same volumes into a box, which is later placed into the WorldVolume, I would expect to retrieve the correct numbering by changing the value of depth to 1, instead I am always getting the same number. Am I doing something clearly wrong or is there a problem somewhere?


Inline Depth:
 1 1
 All All
Outline Depth:
 1 1
 2 2
 All All
