Dear all,

I just realized that asking the GeoManager about the shape of a volume he always answers TGeoBBox, which is a bounding box of each of the volumes, even if they're originally of type e.g. TGeoTube.


root [2] gGeoManager->GetVolume(1211)->GetShape()->InspectShape()
*** Shape stt01wire1880: TGeoTube ***
Rmin = 0.00000
Rmax = 0.00100
dz = 31.80215
Bounding box:
*** Shape stt01wire1880: TGeoBBox ***
dX = 0.00100
dY = 0.00100
dZ = 31.80215
origin: x= 0.00000 y= 0.00000 z= 0.00000

As I wrote in the earlier mail, I tried to access the dimensions of the physical volumes:

   TGeoVolume* actVolume = gGeoManager->GetVolume(fVolumeID);
TGeoShape* actShape = actVolume->GetShape();
const char* fShapeName = actShape->GetName();

fShapeName is always TGeoBBox. How can I arrive to the underlying shape (e.g. TGeoTube) ?
