Hi all, hi Tobias,

I tried a small simulation with the root geometry containing the geometry from the CAD file (Feb. 2008). I get the following segfault from building the geometry:

Well It doesn't tell me much. Maybe the file (preliminary state) is broken.

[edit]
Actually I just saw that in this new geometry file exists a TGeoManager as top level object. So the call for the TVolume is not valid. I'll look for a workaround...

Ralf.

Hi again -
here is a small report on overlaps in the new geometry with the beam-target cross:
index.php?t=getfile&id=4223&private=0

Hi all,

Here my notes on the next geometry. I.e. the rev. 2420 which holds the geometry/MVD_1.0_Pv-1.0_Sv-1.0.root

I ran a simulation and I get the following when I draw the geometry:

index.php?t=getfile&id=4316&private=0

Please note that there are overlaps with the beampipe! Additionally I have the feeling that the mvd geometry is not read in 1:1 because it seems some support material is missing (optically on the root ogl output).

Greetings from Dresden.
Ralf.

Short follow-up with the geometry dorectly drawn by the geomanager from inside the file:
index.php?t=getfile&id=4317&private=0

The beampipe geometry was just converted from the step file of the old framework. So it can be that it is not updated, and that is maybe the reason of the overlaps.

Hello,

I think we run into trouble with our geometry file: The trapezoid sensors are somehow missing in Geant.
To give you an impression there is a picture of Radiation length points for Mvd & pipes in the attatchment.
You can see in the forward region (right plot shows r-z projection) clearly the two forward strip disks missing. I wonder why.

I'll try to figure out. Maybe Tobias could have a short look into the conversion process again.... There are two things in my mind: 1st is this trapezoid shape causing trouble with Geant. The second could be some missing media information.


Ciao, Ralf.
