Re: Question GDML UnknownInsideOutside Fatal Exception (Magda Constantin)

Dear Magda,

I have experienced similar errors when using tessellated objects from STEP imported models and I have managed to solve this problem. So if your case is with tessellated solids, in order to correct this problem you will need two things: first find what is the solid that produce the crash and second ask for the CAD designer to add to the main solid all thin solids which could be on its surfaces.

For clarity I will describe what was my solid configuration when I have got the same error. So I had a big complex solid of aluminium and on the surface where placed mirrors of 50 microns thick and they were the source of the crash as soon as the mirrors where add to the main solid the crash disappears.

Cheers,

Francisco
