Question G4Exception issued by G4GDMLWriteParamvol::ParametersWrite() 

Forum: Persistency
Date: 09 May, 2017
From: Neal Gauvin <Neal Gauvin>


I am trying to export the geometry of a detector in GDML following the examples/extended/persistency/gdml/G01 example. Thus simply adding :

       std::string GDML_export_file = "Geometry.gdml";

after setting the run manager, as described in the example.

When running the application, I get the following error :

-------- EEEE ------- G4Exception-START -------- EEEE -------
*** G4Exception : InvalidSetup
      issued by : G4GDMLWriteParamvol::ParametersWrite()
Solid 'Bump' cannot be used in parameterised volume!
*** Fatal Exception *** core dump ***
-------- EEEE -------- G4Exception-END --------- EEEE -------

*** G4Exception: Aborting execution ***
Aborted (core dumped)

'Bump' is a G4UnionSolid between a Sphere and a Tube, placed a different position through parametrization (G4VPVParameterisation). According to the GDML manual, parametrization in space is handled properly.

Can somebody explain me this error ?
