I have been using g4py and works great. I mainly use it to read various volumes from GDML geometries and rearrange them for various experiment design scenarios. However, it seems that for the pyG4GDMLParser object in g4py/source/gdml/pyG4GDMLParser.cc there is a (in my opinion very useful) function wrapper, which is missing. I have just checked that even in the recent Geant4 version 10.4.p02 the BOOST wrapper is not generated for GetVolume(...) function. This I find very useful to directly pick up various Logical Volumes from a GDML file.
I could easily fix it by adding this line:
.def("GetVolume", &G4GDMLParser::GetVolume, return_internal_reference<>())
in export_G4GDMLParser() function, and rebuild g4py. It would be great if you could add this in the git so that it is generated by default - unless I am missing some obvious functionality that would already do the same.
