[Gate-users] How to create this - slant hole in a plate

As far as I know, this is not possible with the current geometry features of Gate.

However, since Gate is open source, you can add the feature yourself!

If you look at the source code, you'll see that the volumes that Gate supports are Geant4 volumes. A look at the Geant4 source code reveals that it supports many more volumes than Gate. There might be one or more volumes that suit your need in there. You just need to implement it in Gate (using the current source code as a template). It should be relatively straight forward... but your geometry need is a bit complex...

Good luck!

I need to create a geometry in GATE that is a solid plate with a through-hole in it and the axis of the hole has a slant angle to the surface of the plate (not perpendicular).  Can somebody help me how to do it?
