Question No hits in daughter volumes 

Keywords: hits mother daughtor volumes

From: Rick Foster <>

When I make a simple structure (Aluminum tube with some volumes set as sensitive detectors inside), I have no problem registering hits in the SDs when the tube and detectors have the world as their parent.

However, When I make the sensitive detector volumes to be daughters of the aluminum tube (The tube's parent remains the word volume), I do not seem to be registering hits.

So I am wondering if there is a step I am missing when I made the sensitive detector volume a daughter of the tube?



PS: I have triple checked that none of the volumes are overlapping. Everything looks fine when I visualize the geometry, it is just the particles go thru without even appearantly interacting with the SDs.
